    Guys,

    I downloaded a movie but I can't get it to play. I tried it with WMP 11 but it only plays sound. I get a popup saying 'The selected file has an extension (,mkv) that is not recognized by WMP, but the Player may still be able to play it'.

    With VLC 0.8.5, it plays and you can hear the sound but the picture is pixelated mess and runs at about 1 frame every 5 seconds.

    Do you think it's because I have crappy specs?

    AMD 1.2ghz
    1024 DDR ram
    Nvidia FX5200

    I agree with lee551
    you should go to our codec section and get talking to those guys
    on your problem.
    this is the site for 2.72 k-lite codec
    KL Codec Resource Site * K-Lite Mega Codec Pack * QuickTime and Real Alternative
    your specs are ok

    it is the small things that usually drive us mad
