ok, so I’ve been having trouble with playing mkv files on my pc. No matter what codec pack/splitter i use, or even player(ive tried mpc, zoom, wpm10, and VLC mp), i’m not getting any video output. Audio plays fine, and the files run perfectly on my brothers pc, with the same codec. anyone know what the problem could be?
any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks for the info on Zoom Player. I have been going crazy with all these converters and Zoom Player did the job.
Hi...I have a big problem with my movie file which is MKV.
I can only watch Avi file and MKV can’t.How can I get to watch this MKV file movie?
I have been playing Mkv files to watch anime. the problem that i have been having is that, the video tend to get slower that the audio or even worse, the video does not changes at all. it is stuck. I played it using MPC and downloaded the latest K-lite mega codec pack and i believe for mkv it uses Haali media splitter. any suggestion?? very irritating.
i like vlc cuz it plays everything but i dont like the subtitles, so i want to run it in windows media player but dont know which codecs i need to play them, anyone can help?
Hey guys, i have a question. I just downloaded that combined community codec pack, now I can’t play Any media on my PC at all using any players. I might need a Little hand fixing this problem...
Woooo! I figured out how to make this silly file extension play! I was having the same problem a lot of you were having, I installed everything and tried different media players, etc. but the video was still slow and laggy. Using the zoom media player, go into options/setup, and go to player thread priority. Mine was on “normal” initially but I changed it to “realtime” and then the video playback was no longer lagging. I apologize if someone has already mentioned this or if it seems intuitive but I just wanted to share what worked for me!
Go to this site and you can download the Combined community codec pack. And play the matroska video file (.mkv)
Ma video files are not playing well, am told Codecs acquired and the pictures are turned upside down in a wrong format.what codec can be used to change the formats to a good one?
I agree... mkv must be the worst format ever. Some act as though you just need this or that...but every new computer I try to run mkv files on has some issue. I give it the worst codec ever award.
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:
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:
Hope that helps.
Yep it’s using too much cpu. I just had some problems and checked the cpu while it was playing.
VLC Player is the best, its free, and its better than some of the dearest out there, i recommend it 150%
goto www.filehippo.com and search for it on there.
You will not go back.
This worked for me!! http://downloads.matroska.org/packs/
OK, guys and gals.
First off I’m going to explain this problem.
It’s not an .mkv issue, it’s a codec issue.
.mkv, .avi, .flv, etc are merely containers not codecs.
You require a codec for the internal files, i.e. the files contained within the .avi, .mkv, .flv, etc.
This explains the audio working and video not working, etc.
Now, you most likely just need a video codec, as I myself don’t deal with codec packs, VLC player, MPC, WMP or anything that’s not 100% configurable. I chose KMplayer.
Manage its codec use (Internal External) for both audio and video.
You can even edit it’s button combos, and almost everything.
I only have a few codecs I chose to install.
yes www.matroska.com will play mkv. files just fine. any more Q&A I will be more than happy to help or you can go to www.codec.com and scroll for the matroska codec pack your self might be www.codecs.com
Thanks a lot for this.
One more tip.
Avoid codec packs.
I like most of you, started out thinking they were great..
Until I began installing them onto another system which gave filter issues, and it refused to play video files, while my PC was working fine.
I install only 4 codecs and one media player. That’s it.
I install xvid because I have an editor that requires it, the real & QT files are because they’re not included with the player, and CoreAVC is because I prefer high quality AVC codecs.
