you guys please install appropriate codec.

either download Divx player from www.divx.com and install only codecs and dirac show filters.OR use other playes having internal codecs. some popular freeware players that plays most of the video and audio files including MKV are below
1. KMP Player
2. VLC media player
3. GOM player reply
