I had the same problem, I had English and Japanese voices at the same time. I went to corecoded.com and downloaded The Core Media Player 4.02. Everything works great now! I can cycle my subtitles and voices! reply

Each of the Windows Mediaplayers will play MKV files fine after installing one of the matroska packs from http://packs.matroska.org , but they are not the recommended players, especially because they can not be made to recognize the matroska extensions. If you want WMP to open MKV files by default, you have to set this in Windows Explorer in the 'open with' dialogue by clicking 'always open this file type with the following program' .

Recommended players are :

Zoomplayer : http://www.inmatrix.com

TCMP : http://www.corecoded.com

MPC ( disable internal MKV splitter for newer files ! ) : http://sf.net/projects/guliverkli

VLC : http://www.videolan.org ( NOT DirectShow based, doesnt require matroska pack. Won’t play RV9 in MKV )

Foobar2000 : http://www.foobar2000.org ( audio only )

Merry Christmas ;)

Download VLC player! It’s definetly the best one. although scrolling is not the best since it oftens smears the colors all over the screan. it gets better after a second or two...I love VLC player! reply

I tried playing .mkv in BS player, Zoom player, WMP, TCMP, and MPC. (I have them all.)

But whenever I try playing them there, my computer would freeze, and it takes resetting, and I’ve tried it a lot of times already.

I think I have RealAlternative already, since I can play .rm/.rmvb files in MPC.

Only VLC plays the .mkv file for me, but it still has a tendency to freeze the computer later in the show.

Can someone help? I can say that when I play the .mkv file in the other players, though, a green arrow appears on the bottom right of my screen, in the icons beside the time.

I’m clueless about this... can someone help? reply

Hi,

we dont have such behaviour reported from anybody else. If even VLC will freeze your PC when trying to play MKV files, my best bet is that you are facing serious hardware problems ( CPU overheat ). Check the CPU usage during playback, it might be quite high. This is not the container’s fault, the guy creating the file obviously was using codecs needing a lot of CPU power, like Realvideo at high resolutions, HE-AAC audio or SSA subs with many fancy features.

I recently got mkv files to work perfectly on Windows Media Player 9, I didn’t want to install any more media players onto my computer as it takes up space. I think this method should work for other versions of Media Player as well, but I’m not sure.

First I installed Lazy Man’s MKV codec pack from here:
http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA022257/matroska/

Then to deal with the dual audio problem (where two languages would play at the same time) I downloaded Morgan Stream Switcher, which you can find here:
http://www.morgan-multimedia.com/mmswitch/

Hope that helps. reply

Feedback


Morgan Stream Switcher works great with WMP10, which is good cos I am running windows media center edition (mce), stops the problem of booth streams playing at the same time, but can’t find a way of switching to differnet auto track, since everything seem to work in english, not a problem at the moment :) reply

Feedback


I am running WMP10 and installed the Lazy Codec. It starts to play and says it is playing ( my mkv file ) but I hear nothing and see nothing.. any ideas? reply
