I have recently downloaded a video file with .mkv as extension. I have tried a lot of video players to see it with: Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic, PowerDVD and VLC Player.
With PowerDVD I can't even get the file started.
With Media Player Classic and Windows Media Player the video was blocking very frequently, but the sound was good.
With VLC Player it seems much better, but still the video blocks sometimes.
What do you suggest for a .mkv file to be played with? Please also tell me if I need certain codecs. I use K-lite Codec Pack.
