woim,

if mkvtoolnix cant recognize the file, it is either corrupted download or a fake. In any case its either broken, or not a valid MKV file.

Last thing you can try is to try to play it with VLC, the great Videolan player ( http://videolan.org ; Ver. 0.8.2 is latest ). It can try to skip some of the headers, and will sometimes play a file if no other player will. Anyhow, if the file is just a fake and containing random number of bits, there is nothiing to play. If it is a MKV, but corrupted, it also has no chance to fix this if the track headers are not present. They are vital to be able to play any file.

Hi, quick question, i tried the k-lite pack and the matroska pack (seperately mind you) and for some reason I can’t change the audio from english to japanese. I was able to before, and I’m really not sure why I can’t now, I have reinstalled windows a couple times since i last played it. Any help would be great, thanks. reply

If you install latest matroska pack, 1.1.1, you can change audio languages by right clikcing on the matroska tray icon on lower right corner.

MKV Files with Kaffeine under Kubuntu 5.4 :

I managed to play MKV files with Kaffeine under Kubuntu 5.4 that seem to be encoded with some Matroska codec related to RealPlayer (?)...

The trick :

Download and extract the realplayer codecs “rp9codecs-20050115.tar” from MPlayer’s codec directory (http://www2.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/).

Thers a line called “decoder.external.real_codecs_path:" in ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config.

Just uncomment it and put the path where you installed the realplayer codecs.
Voilà, it works for me !

David :

MKV files with Realvideo ( RV9/RV10 ) are quite common in the release scene, especially all the brilliant [XTC] releases are using it.

Both mplayer and Xine can play these files on LInux, if the Real DLLs are present. On Windows, all you need is either Realplayer or RealAlternative installed, and the Realmedia splitter coming with our full pack from http://packs.matroska.org .

IN 99% of all cases, converting a MKV into an AVI is impossible, unless you want to reencode certain streams (involving a big quality loss then).

The reason is simple :

MKV was invented to overcome the many limitations that AVI is having, namely

no (proper) support for VBR audio
no support at all for VFR video
no (proper) support for b frames
no support at all for VSR audio ( Vorbis )

For this very reason, most MKVs will contain streams where audio and video compression methods are used, which are simply impossible to store in AVI files. Unless you decide to reencode them into something else that CAN be put into AVI, that is.

And if you video stream should be VFR ( Variable Framerate ), you better not try it. It needs a real Pro to do that, and the result will be a 120 fps ( frames per second ) AVI in most cases, if it works at all.

hey thank you very much... but I think its not impossible... and i already did it yesterday after posting this... i found another 2 programs lol... it was very hard but i did it... and with no loss of quality and with just one language and/or one subtitle...

so here it is.....
first you need to have installed the matroska pack.. i used the newest one... i think is 1.1 or so....
then.....
I used mkvtoolnix...

in mkv toolnix there is a program called mkvmerge GUI v1.5.0 or so... and so with that you can chose the mkv file you want to convert...

so you chose it and just before converting it... you take out all languages and subtitles you don’t want... as it isolates the whole file and makes it easier to convert... then you mux it...

it just takes about a minute or two.... after that you might think it didn’t work.. because it is still a mkv file... and it is, so try it on your vlc player (i used that it really works fine) and you can see that the only language available is the one you left in the video.. the other ones were taken out... (same with subs)...

so... now that you’ve isolated the video.. you can now transform it... into a readable video file....

you must have WinAVI video Converter to change it properly.... so if you have it now.. just open it and click on DVD... (you might see also the option of AVI... i tried to change it to avi.. but i just don’t have the realmedia 9 codec... and i have downloaded tons of packs. so i just give up...)

so... after clicking DVD.. (unless you have the realmedia 9codec go to avi) you go and chose advanced... there you chose PAL.. don’t chose NTSC or AUTO, cuz it just might freeze your computer... in aspect ratio leave it in auto...

takes about 10 minutes to change it and voila!!! you have a working dvd format mkv file... tho now is not a mkv file anymore.... it works... i did it last night... so i’m not so lazy like you said... topsyTurvy.. but thanks anyways...

P.s.. i’m very sorry for my bad english...
any questions just e-mail me reply

no prob. :)

but now i have another question.... when i want to record my dvd...

i can’t get it to work properly...

i am using 2 kind of dvd burners... Nero pro latest version... and roxio dvd creator 6... and i can’t get it to work.. because it has no audio in some parts of the dvd... i added a few episodes... but some have no audio and some do have the audio... and the problem is not within the file because the file is 100 percent ok... so i i think there is some codec or something that my burners need.... that i obviously don’t have... so could you help me ?? anyone please???? reply

Feedback


1st of all....is it an avi file or a movie ripped from a dvd? If U r using nero then U shouldn’t b using roxio because they r enemies. Either use nero or roxio..but in my opinion..I prefer nero. reply

Ffs,mkv files suck,and matroska is damn lame piece of shit.why even bother to do some lowlife shit format/codec,when avi’s etc work proberly and ok.this matroska should not ever been made.that’s my opinion about it.i didnt get that shit working on my comp,and will never ever touch that piece of shit again.matroska should burn in hell.

Just because *you* couldn’t get it to work, it doesn’t mean that Matroska is bad.

Oh and by the way you should work on your spelling. reply

its my first xperience with mkv files and i must say VLC plays it very well (on Mac OS X.3 at the moment).

I usually use ffmpeg o convert/re encode video to a desired format (e.g. to DVD).
In this particular case, ffmpeg accepted the .mkv format and converted it but ffmpeg did not recognise the audio nor did it include it in the converted resulting movie.

So the conversion for the video part is easy but now i just need find a way to extract/export the audio also. Preferably OS X :)

with kind regards reply

OK, I ran matroskadiag.exe on ALL of my mkv files and it’s the same error each time: “No suitable video decompression could be found” using any of my media players (MP10, TCMP, WMP6.4, VLC) I’ll put the diagnostic on here. What else do I need to do to make it work ?
