    MS dropped support for the Mac version some time ago - I don't even know if they ever released anything for intel arch in this regard.

    Have you tried mplayer? It's quite reliable.

    edit: I'm assuming Flip4Mac didn't help you? In case you haven't installed it you should do that first (if wmv media is your problem).

    I don't know since I never dealt with .mkv files - the website should have information about mplayer's features.

    I've found that Perian handles subbed (font styles, less CPU usage!) MKV files in Quicktime a lot more nicely then VLC.

    In the development tracker they cite more improvements being made in MKV performance as well.

    I have that same problem with certain MKV files as well. It might be relevant to this ticket and resolved in Perian 1.1.
