any1 know a player/codec for .mkv files?!?

Page 6 of 24« first 3 4 6 8 9 last »

in my experience, i also downloaded a heap of codecs and stuff...i downloaded this vlc player,and the like but still cannot play the files, i soon found out that the files themselves are full of crap...so if you have a problem with playing your mkv files, it maybe traced to your files themselves, either they are poorly made or corrupted. try to download the file from a different source or a source you trust. I downloaded an anime twice each from different sources, one played smoothly using vlc player (I didn’t install any codecs or matroska pack), the other, well, it sucks. reply

Mariah,
Please see my previous post and my links. I had the same problem that you described and the extra codecs that I got from the 2nd link helped me fix the problem. reply

Paddle, I Hate To Sound Like Some Dumb Girl But I Honestly Didn’t Understand Anything In That Long Post...I’m Not The Greatest With Computers...But Im Glad Im Not The Only One With This Problem...But Does The Fact I Have Windows Media Player 9 and Have Windows 98 affect it? reply

Upside down picture :

Check your 'filter list' of your favourite player for the existence of the 'DivX G400' filter. If so, blacklist it and try again.

Hi,
I am trying to view some .mkv anime files and I have read some of the forum, so I apologize if I have missed anything. My problem is that I can see the video but I cannot hear the sound at all. I have d/led the Matroska pack and I’ve tried the Zoomplayer and I still have the exact same problem, thanks reply

@ DeathDan :

Google for the latest ffdshow Decoder filter and install it, and your problems should be gone. Your anime likely is containing some AAC audio, and we are aware that there is a bug in CoreAAC right now, the AAC audio decoder we normally provide with our pack.

Installing the latest ffdshow will fix this problem, alternatively there is an updated CoreAAC here : http://coreaac.corecodec.org .

Soon we plan to launch the 1.2.0 version of our packs, fixing this also.

Hey, thanks for helping me, but I’m not really sure what I am suppose to do.. I went to the link you told me, and in the end ended up on the RareWares.org website. I click ACC at top right and I see a bunch of ACC encoders and decoders. I tried downloading the first 2, since they seemed more reasonable then the MacOS x or w/e. I have Widonws XP and Im using Windows Media Player 10 and I am not sure which decoder I need. After I downloaded them, the first one was a .exe file which does nothing when u open it, except that a window pops up for a second. The second one is just a DLL and I am thinking I should stick that somewhere? like the windows folder where all the dll files are? I really new at this.. Thanks in advance reply

mh...i understand it isn’t very easy for many ppl but it pretty simple ,or at least it was for me and i had all those problems i see ppl talking about or asking questions etc...first i advice something wich became one of the best things i did,stop using windows mediaplayer or quicktime and alot of problems will be solved,clean up your system of all those codecs you downloaded installed etc and most of em you don’t understand what they actualy do...a fresh start ,very important,don’t try to adjust with codecs or whatever b/c i noticed that when you said zoomplayer didn’t work then yer system is overdone with codecs and changing stuff...go to the zoomplayer website and READ it before doing all kinda things,all the codecs are there everything ,how to find em and how to install them etc ,
Zoom Player is capable of playing all common media formats and quite a few of the not so common, including:
AVI, Matroska (MKV), QuickTime (MOV), Cellphone 3GPP (3GP), Flash (SWF), RealMedia (RA/RM/RMVB/RAM), Windows Media Format (ASF/WMV/WMA including DRM with WMV Professional version), OGG Movie (OGM), MPEG1 (MPG/VCD), MPEG2 (MPG/SVCD/VOB), MPEG4 (DIVX/XVID/ISO), VP3-VP6, MPEG Layer 3 (MP3), Vorbis Audio (OGG), Dolby Digital (AC3), Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), MusePack Audio (MPC), FLAC Audio (FLAC), OptimFROG Audio, Monkey Audio (APE), True Audio (TTU), Wave Audio (WAV), CD-Audio.
give it a try ,it has better features then WMP or try another skin while using it ,they have good ones ,and if you realy don’t like this player ,well...at least you will have started with a clean system reply

Bullshit. All you need is Media Player Classic - the damn best windows player ever - and AllIn1 Codec Pack. The .mkv files ale playing perfectly, with sound and fast rewinds.

You can download both the player and codec pack from http://www.tahaj.sk

Note: this will solve you many many problems with video files, not just the .mkv filetype :) reply

christian: altought i generally support all kinds of freeware for ethical reasons, i cannot understand what is the purpose of matroska MKV format, which problem is solving???, everyone in this forum are having trouble trying to play or extracting usefull video formats from the MKV maze.
the script seems to work wrong and even a zipped folder could pack different subtitles and audio.
keep on developing matroska, but please make the next version user friendly and please include the MKV to wherever but MKV button.

usefull links to convert MKV to standar formats

Everyone is having trouble ? We do have 1.5 Million downloads of our playback pack meanwhile, and get in an average 5 - 10 problem reports per month. Read here also :
http://www.tokyotosho.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=791&highlight=mkv

matroska is also not 'solving a problem' , it simply offers the encoder of the movie more options and possibilities than good old AVI (speaking of VfW AVI, created by Virtualdub), namely
- selectable soft subtitles
- selectable audio tracks
- the biggest variety of compression and subtitles formats in in a single file ( h.264, Realvideo, AAC, Vorbis, Wavpack, FLAC, etc. )
- VFR (Variable Framerate) video
- menues (soon)
etc.

In the end, its the decision of the person creating and sharing the movie if she/he wants to use AVI or MKV. For you, the leechers, its also simple :
If you dont want to 'mess' with MKVs, dont download them :P

the script seems to work wrong and even a zipped folder could pack different subtitles and audio. keep on developing matroska, but please make the next version user friendly and please include the MKV to wherever but MKV button.

Script ? What script ? Is it possible that you have really no real understanding of what you are actually talking about ? Do expressions like 'DirectShow' , 'Playback Graph' and 'Decoder Filter' etc. mean something to you ?

to Mr silverblood...erm...if everything works fine and you don’t have problems ,well then “just"installing WMP Classic will work fine ,like i don’t know that as i have used it also and every1 has his preferences and i sure don’t like windowsmediaplayer"bullshit”...instead of saying all this explain to this person how to clean up his system to have a new start before installing it ,bett you can’t ,b/c i had this thing years ago and you don’t fixx these probs with “just” installing WMP classic and a bunch of codecs on top and mixxing it with all the other stuff.
and about MKV : Matroska (MKV/MKA extensions) is a wrapper format similar to AVI and OGM, but development on it is advancing much more rapidly.
Matroska contains advanced capabilities such as multiple audio tracks, subtitle tracks, chaptering, and possibly its most important aspect is that it is very extensible.
i never had probs with it ,and yes i have to join Christian when he sais if you can’t sort out MKV just look for your files in an other extention reply
