Hey i have a question. I just downloaded Howl’s Moving Castle and its a mkv file. and i’ve tried just about everything. I’ve downloaded cccp and it still doesnt work in Windows Media Player Classic. The only player that it works in is VLC but that player lags a lot. When i try playing it in other video players such as WMPC it says “Cannot render file” and if i tried the Core Media Player it says “mkunicode.dll was not found”. Zoom player says “Unable to play....This may be due to a corrupt file, missing filters, filter conflicts, or hardware related issues” Please, help, i really want to watch this movie and i cant seem to find any files of it that are in .avi format or any other format that is easier to play.
I’ve downloaded the Matroska lite pack but some reason the audio works fine but theres no video. I use Windows media player. Thanks...
Have scrolled through but cannot find the answer to my question. I have a MKV movile file that plays the video perfectly in zoom, vlc and MPC. I can hear the background music ONLY. The people are talking but i can hear nothing.
Seems really odd. I thought it could be a codec but why would i hear the music in the film and not the voices??
Any help would be appreciated
I have tried VLC and it does every bit as well as Media player on windows, I have to say it is very good when you think of the resources at Microsquish, they should be able to do better than some kids in a high school, don’t you think?

... you dont really expect me to help you after this 'friendly opening', do you ?
And matroska is NOT A CODEC !! matroska is a container, it can CONTAIN MANY TRACKS USING VARIOUS DIFFERENT CODECS ... is this so hard to understand ?
Converting MKV files into DVD/S-VCD is still not an easy task, as none of the MPEG conversion tool developers has added support for it yet. TMPG used to work with the DirectShow reader, but only with the old matroska splitter from Gabest, don’t know why. Haali’s splitter, from the new packs, dont work with it.
I believe that many anime release groups are using MKV these days because they are well aware that its not so easy to create freakin DVDs from their work ;) ...

I have a program that converts MKV and OMG files to playable dvds... it has an amazing compression rate and if you put 12-13 eps per dvd it has near dvd quality depending on file quality...search for “convertxtodvd” thats the name of it...this program is the only video converting and burning program i use.... its superior to nero and every other program like it... just thought id tell you. Since converting MKV and OGM files are a pain.
I seem to have problem with the subtitles on BSplayer. On all my other players, subtitles work fine as DirectVobSub shows up (green arrow tray), and I have checked the settings and it reports that the subtitles are English etc. But when running the video on BSplayer there is no sign of subtitles anywhere, however I checked the options within BSplayer and scrolled to 'Subtitles'. Mysteriously it only gives me an option of French subtitles (I confirm that BSplayer uses DirectVobSub), yet no subtitles (even in French).
So im sitting dumbstrucked thinking why it wouldnt work. The video itself is a .mkv file. The subtitles within the video is all internal, no extra files are included to get the subtitles to run.
Can anyone help me out? (ThxInAdv)
I personally don’t like using all the WMP10 because it doesn’t work well in my opinion.
If you’re lazy like me then I suggest KMPlayer. No, you don’t need any codecs for anything because it plays files that are in MKV, AVI, VCD, DVD,MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, QuickTime, and etc.
