Creating an .mkv using mkvmerge works, but extracting the audio from the 
created file afterwards fails (see output below). Extracting the audio 
works with ffmpeg and ffplay correctly renders video and audio from the 
original file (which doesn't really help me, since I need a working 
directshow filtergraph).
