Hi Im trying to play .mkv files in divx player which is divx 7.1 so you would think the video file should play but when I open the .mkv video file in divx player it says “the file contains an audio track in unknown format you may need to install a directshow decoder for this audio format in order to hear the soundtrack to this file. And I already tried installing all the 3rd party codecs for the .mkv video files. Can anyone help me?
You’ll probably want to feed the media file into mediainfo
and find out what the audio codec is
It’s probably something like AC3 or Vorbis, which aren’t bundled with DivX. If AC3, download ac3filter. If vorbis, try http://xiph.org/dshow/
If you’re lazy, get ffdshow-tryouts or VLC Media Player.
