CorePlayer Pro and Mobile 1.3.6 2009-09-15 Homepage
Comment:
From the creators of Matroska... we have also created CorePlayer with similar goals. Supporting CE, Windows Mobile, PocketPC, Palm Symbian, iPhone, Windows, OS X and Linux, CorePlayer is currently the one player that uses the lowest CPU resources for playback of any modern media files, and includes full MKV and MKA support. However as of 1/2009 it does not support subtitles, RealVideo or AC3 playback. Please CorePlayer features one of the leading H.264 video decoders, "CoreAVC". Note it is not DirectShow based, so no codecs/filter installation is necessary.

Comment:
Currently the one player with the best matroska menu support, and not based on DirectShow (if you don't like codec installation on your PC) and it will play most of your MKVs out of the box.

This a command line tool to clean and optimize Matroska files that have already been muxed. It reorders the file for faster offline/online playback with the Cues at the front. Also comes with mkWDclean to modify files in a way they can play in broken players.
