You need one of the packs from

http://packs.matroska.org

if your preferred player is DirectShow based, like

Windows Mediaplayer
Zoomplayer
Media Player Classic (MPC)
The Core Media Player (TCMP)
BSplayer

Alternatively, you can use

VLC http://videolan.org
Xine http://xine.sf.net
mplayer http://mplayerhq.hu

Would you mind giving us a little bit more information ? or do we have to guess your setup, OS, player, kind of MKV file, etc. ? reply


Well i have about the same problem as Ewewwe has, and i have CCCP codec. So every time when i open MKV or somehting else then AVI my screen get frozen and i cant do anything :( So i just hit restart button on my PC. I do have new video drivers 94.24 and my video is 7800 GT. I guess i will try to get different codec. reply
