How do I play .mkv files?
« on: February 03, 2010, 05:23:13 AM »
Without converting them? And without having to burn them to a disc?

Does anyone here know?

I use shark007 codec pack.  Works like a charm, it plays everything even in Windows Media Center.

And if that doesn't work I'll re-install VLC. I installed that about 5 years ago.

Don't know if what media player your are using but if it's Media Center, here is the guide I used: http://www.hack7mc.com/2009/01/playing-mkvs-in-media-center.html
That website is gold.

use http://www.cccp-project.net/

click the download cccp link

it comes with ffdshow and mpc-hc (the best player for windows) in an installable pack. with vlc you will experience alot of blocking or artifacts depending on how the mkv (720p or 1080p x264 rips?) are encoded

you'll need to convert it using meGUI (windows) or visualhub (osx)

Yeah, you need to convert it but when you do the quality won't be same.

MKV Player is a good solution: https://mkv-player.en.softonic.com/
But I have many mkv videos in large size so I still need to convert them to MP4 with h.264 codec. I don't notice any quality damage after conversion. Here is the video conversion tool that supports kind of video and audio conversion inculding mkv to mp4, avi to mkv and so on: Three Useful Methods to Convert AVI to MKV without Losing Quality
