I just downloaded anime from TorrentSpy and I can’t play the file. Everytime I try to play it using media player, it won’t work. It’s telling me that the file was not supported or the codec was not supported to compress the file.
The extension file had 3 extension, they are sub,dub,mkv.
I downloaded lazyman’s mkv, alternative codec, k-lite codecpack, and s-codecpack, it still won’t work.
I try using vlc, but it won’t work also.
can someone help me with this. What do i have to do in order to play the file?
all the movie like bleach I could play it.
pls let me know about this. reply

Personal preference, use Zoom Player 2 play ogm n mkv files, I’ve never had any real trouble with them. Hope that helps U out a little. reply

Sorry if this question is already answered. I looked up pretty huge time and now i’m exhausted. So i’m posting directly here. I was dealing with some Anime movie files and they r like somefile.01.xvid.mkv now i’ve downloaded and installed the “Matroska_Pack_Lite” and tried to play with media player classic. Now whenever i try 2 play the files i get this message in a window of MPL:

Thats AAC audio. Install CoreAAC from http://coreaac.corecodec.org (it will forward to rarewares.org), or ffdshow with ffdshow-audio.

VLC player from http://www.videolan.org will also play the file fine, without having to install anything.

Guys! I think the best way to play MKV files is downloading the full pack of Matroska (http://matroska.org) It plugs up with either your winmplayer or realplayer. Doesn’t Matter if you are using the latest version. But having the latest player is better though... reply

I would like to convert mkv files that have dual language and also have subtitle to dvd or vcd (mpeg files). Do you know what is the best converter software that I can download? And what is the best way for me to convert those mkv files so I can watch on tv. reply

Feedback


Just go to www.google.com and type
'mkv to avi or mpeg' and then search. reply

I just got an iBook and it is running OS X 4.3. I just downloaded some .MKV files with [divx.5.2.1] in the file name and my VLC player won’t recognize them. I can’t download Media Player Classic for Mac because it isn’t supported on OS X 4 (according to the divx for Mac website). Do I need to download the matroska lib files listed on the OSX download page, or will that even help? And what do the lib files do, anyway? Are they codecs?

Thank you for your help,
Joanna reply

@ Gerson : if you are using the latest matroska playback packs on Windows, you should see a matroska tray icon popping up when starting to play it, in the bottom right corner of your PC.
Right click on it and select your preferred language.

@ Johanna Schmidt : What version of VLC are you running ? The file should give no problems on 0.8.2 ?

tnx...i’ll try it... i dont knw wat version of vlc i hav....well tnx anyway...hop u hav a nice day reply

@ Gerson : when you are playing the MKV files with VLC on Windows, no tray icon will come up. Only when using a DirectShow based player, like WMP, Zoomplayer, MPC or TCMP this will happen, and only after installing the matroska playback packs.

In VLC there is a function to select the desired audio stream, same for the subtitles. For selecting the right language, goto
'audio' 'audio track'
and select the right one.

i download a mkv file, and first i couldn’t play at all, then i downloaded Zoomplayer (like recommended) and i was able to HEAR, but NOT SEE the file. THe website that i downloaded it from (http://www.boxtorrents.com/details.php?id=128670) said that the video codec was XviD 640 x 352. i have also downloaded wmp 9, and Dvix...what’s wrong? help please! reply

@Christian: I am running VLC 0.8.2. I finally got it to play, but the files won’t play all the way through. The audio runs fine, but the video stalls out and I get error messages. Eventually the video catches up, but I still miss several seconds of video, and it happens often. I followed the link to the dowload page for the lib files, and it took me to a directory. Do I need to download any of those files to make it work right? Thanks. reply

@ Joanna : i guess you MKV contains h.264 video, and your Apple is probably not strong enough to play it in real time ? Bear in mind, h.264 (AVC) is the most effective video compression available, but you need at least a 1.4 GHz Athlon to decode it in real time without stuttering, and i know many Aplles dont have that computing power. There is a project called TCPMP (http://tcpmp.corecodec.org) programming a player for portable units, requiring VERY little CPU power, but i dont know if its available for MacOSX.

@ Yuki : Install the latest ffdshow DirectShow filter, you obviously dont have a XviD decoder installed.
