Default Can I make a standalone CD with a Matroska file?

I have this movie in a Matroska (.mkv) package. The video is encoded as Real media and the audio as Ogg Vorbis.
Question: Can I make a stand-alone CD with this movie (meaning, so that it would run on a PC with no codecs installed)?

From different sources, I gathered so far that I will need the following files:

in [root]:
ogg.dll
vorbis.dll
vorbisenc.dll

in /filters:
CoreVorbis.ax
MatroskaSplitter.ax
OggDS.dll

My bspfilters.dat reads:

[BSPlayer filter def file]

AddFilter {149D2E01-C32E-4939-80F6-C07B81015A7A},Matroska Filter
AddFilter MatroskaSplitter.ax,{149D2E01-C32E-4939-80F6-C07B81015A7A},Matroska Splitter
AddFilter RealMediaSplitter.ax, {238D0F23-5DC9-45A6-9BE2-666160C324DD}, RealMedia Splitter
AddFilter CoreVorbis.ax, {0835DC4B-AA01-48C3-A42D-FD62C530A3E1},CoreVorbis Audio Decoder
AddFilter OggDS.dll,{02391F44-2767-4E6A-A484-9B47B506F3A4},Vorbis Decoder

[Video]
????={238D0F23-5DC9-45A6-9BE2-666160C324DD}, RealMedia Splitter

[Audio]
????={0835DC4B-AA01-48C3-A42D-FD62C530A3E1},CoreVorbis Audio Decoder

I assume that I need to add lines in the [Video] and [Audio] sections, but what are the FilterGUID for RealMediaSplitter.ax and CoreVorbis.ax?

I got the RealMedia Splitter from RealAlternative 1.28 (no way am I going to infect my computer with that @#%&+!! RealOne player).
I read somewhere that RealAlternative only provides "DirectShow" filters but I'm not sure what that means...
also, analyzing my movie with GSpot only gives "MS" options for decoding, not "GSpot" (whatever that means)

Thanks for an enlightening reply! I don't understand that much about the different codecs, I am more like guessing what to do.
so please don't laugh too hard at me if I'm making a complete ass of myself here, ok?

I can't see RealMediaSplitter.ax in your listed files, but I suppose you're going to put it on the CD too

You can use Gspot / View / Installed Codecs / Video to determine the ???? for Real Media...I didn't have that one installed so I can't tell, but it should be there...at least QuickTime (alternative) was.

BTW: I think FilterGUID means that 238D0F23-5DC9-45A6-9BE2-666160C324DD thing...I've used windows regedit to find this code using the filters filename as query.

Duh. Can't believe I forgot about that! Thanks for the reminder!

Well, when I run Gspot I get the following information (after I "forced" it to read a .mkv file)

There are NO proposed codec solutions in the 2 columns "gspot".
Using the column "MS", I get:

Render OK; the following combination of filters was used:
(Src) --> [RealVideo Decoder]>--(A)-->[Video Renderer]-->
(Src) --> [CoreVorbis Audio Decoder]>--(A)-->[Default DirectSound Device]


When I ask for the details of the filters, I get:

DSH DirectShow CLSID {238D0F23-5DC9-45A6-9BE2-666160C324DD}

I guess I used a misnomer. What I meant with "FilterGUID" was rather
the codec's 4CC code respectively audiotag - as you can see, those are missing in the table above!

In the sample file bsfilters.sam provided by BSPlayer, it says:

[Video]
; Syntax: FourCC=FilterGUID,FilterName
; This FourCC codes are for for AVI files only
;DIV3={82CCD3E0-F71A-11D0-9FE5-00609778AAAA},DivX 3.11 MPEG4 decoder

and

[Audio]
; Syntax: AudioTag=FilterGUID,FilterName
; For AVI files
; 0055=MPEG Layer III (MP3) audio

So what I am missing is the 4 digit codes that go before the = sign.

Does this tell you something that it doesn't tell me?

By the way, I used GSpot v2.52 beta01 for the results above.
