    VLC or install Perian 1.1 (install Flip4Mac while you are at it) and use Quicktime Player.

    Thanks for the info.

    I can now play my .mkv file in Quicktime but how can I burn it to a DVD to play in a DVD player?

    Thanks for your help.

    you cant just play an MKV file in a dvdplayer, you would have to convert the file using Visualhub first and then author it using a Idvd or a similar app.
