So, your neighbour, who is a real video compression freak and very experienced in this, gave you a nice self made capture of the last scary neighborhood party, with an evil grin on his face, its in .mkv format and now you cant play it on your PC ??

On the very left of this page you will find some links to a FAQ, where we are trying to answer question that could have been your questions, if you get in contact with matroska for the very first time.
