vlc and smplayer wont play mkv video track


#1

is anyone else having an issue with mkvs not playing right, both vlc and smplayer are playing the audio tracks fine but wont display video, vlc says “no suitable decoder module:” but smplayer doesn’t seem to display an error about it


#2

after a bit more stuffing around it seems it only effects certan groups of files


#3

Can you also check what video codec this is that causes the problem ?
MKV is only a container which can use numerous of audio & video codecs.


#4

uncheck /Smplayer/Options/Preferences/Interface/Hide video window when playing audio files
