Cant Play mkv files



Apologies for starting a new thread but there's currently a forum problem which prevents opening a post with some punctuation in the Subject title.

In a standard set up VLC (along with many others) will play multimedia in mkv container.
If several multimedia applications are failing to open a media file it suggests there may be an issue with the file rather than the players so you may need to provide a bit more information.

What is the file and where is it from ?
Do you get any error messages when you try to play the file ?
If you check the media file with VLC or something like MediaInfo (if you have it) of ffmpeg do they report any anomalies ?
