    Hi, I am trying to play a video file but I get an error stating

    "Error 4294967295 Player does not recognize the audio in this video. Additional Software is required to play."

    Now it seems to be a codec issue and a quick google search tells me I need the K-Lite codec pac but that's available for Mac. I also Perian 1.2.3. installed and that does not work either.

    Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

    Thank you

    I use Perian as well. Right now your best option is to just use VLC.

    Best mkv player is Mplayer. It's like media player classic in windows.

    It supports almost everything .

    This. Perian + MPlayerX (free in the app store) has never let me down; plays everything without any problem for me.

    VLC easily. I'd also strongly recommend a WD Live Gen 3 for offline playback - that no problems with virtually anything, even 25GB high bitrate .mkv's.
