VLC .mkv problems....

VLC laggs while playing some of the mkv rip (H264/4gb) nba games i download.... it also lags in fast for/backward. In the other hand it never laggs with 1080/720p mp4 movies.

I tried to watch the nba mkv rip with movist and it played buttery smooth with no lag.

Its obvious a codec problem.... any solution (maybe on settings) cause in Vlc the image quality seems better than on movist....?

Whoever encoded those rips may have done a poor job with the encoding, causing VLC to struggle with the decode process.

What kind of computer? How high is your CPU utilization during playback of 1080p movies versus this content? Have you tried transcoding one of those videos using Handbrake and playing back the transcoded version (fixes many encoding problems)?
