    I use Plex to play all movies, TV shows and music videos. It plays many formats, including .mkv files. It will automatically download movie posters, subtitles, metadata, etc.

    The server manages your collection, and the player plays it on any Mac, iPhone or iPad. If you don't care for that, you can use VLC Player.

    The .mkv file may be defective or damaged. I can play .mkv files on VLC with no problems.

    In order to find out, what may be wrong with your video, you can use the following three applications to analyse a sample video file.
    When done, you can use the "Report" (VideoSpec) and "Export" (Media Inspector) button to export a report,
    attachable to your next post via the [​IMG] button.
    In MediaInfo you have to go to the Menu Bar, select View > Text and copy the text via CMD+A > CMD+C and paste it via CMD+V into your next post.

    And if it is a torrented file, it could also be a fake.

    I prefer Movist though.

    I say VLC. I have been using it for years, and it has never failed on me. Matroska is supported
