Default bsplayer cannot play .mkv files

Well, I have 2 PC, both running windowsXp and having exactly the same codec.
BSPlayer can play .mkv files on PC A but not on PC B.
However, media plyer classic on PC B can play .mkv files too
Anybody can answer me that? Thanks

I just downloaded the latest version of BSPlayer and used the patch from mastroska.org. Now I can see the video but without any subtitle. Could someone please tell me where do I turn on the subtitle? Thankx.

Another thing I would like to point out is, how come there is no green arrow that is supposed to come out in the tray icon when playing .mkv files? Another I notice is that when I try to select matroska filter property, there's this msg box pops up with the message "Matroska sucks()" -.-;
any reasons??

because you didnt use the latest vobsub filter!

put the following lines in a .txt file, adjust the paths, rename it to .bat and run it:
Code:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\regsvr32.exe /u c:\path to\dvobsub.ax
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\regsvr32.exe c:\path to\vsfilter.dll
download the latest vsfilter ( vobsub filter 2.28 ) here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=176836

btw there you can also always download the latest matroska splitter (which is needed to play matroska files)

deinstall the matroska pack and register the matroska splitter together with vsfilter on the page i linked you to

this splitter is used internally in media player classic too


btw did you download this matroska pack from matroska.org? i wonder because this pack is the latest and should have all you need included...

Yeah, I have download the latest codec pack from www.matroska.org but I still cannot view any subtitle.
I have also tried the matorska filter and the vsfilter as you have suggested but still no subtitle. Guess, that's my luck? Ah well..

I have just downloaded the latest version,i.e. build 500 , and now subtitles will not even show up when playing .ogm files even though I am using the same codecs as before and have reinstalled them. Duh...
wat's more to say abt having subtitle showing up when playing .mkv files :roll:
