So I've asked this question before in other forums and never got a straight answer. How the hell do I watch .mkv filetypes?? What codecs do I need or what specific player will play them? I gone through so many and none work so if you can play these filetypes, please let me know how. I'm dying here. Thanks

you can also look up the combined communites codec pack, just do a google search for it, it has a whole bunch of great codecs including MKV, after you install it you can watch the files in almost any player. my personal favroite is windows media player classic though.

Success!! Thank you guys soooo much. The matroska didn't work but I think i just have bad luck with codecs. The VLC player actually worked though. Thank you soo much.

Quick question thats a little off topic: Can we upload MKV's to CR or do they have to be MPG or AVI?
