    Are there any video player for mac that plays .mkv and/or .avi files with surround sound?

    I'm using the digital optical output on my 2008 mac pro...

    Try VLC. Quicktime with Perian installed should work fine too.

    I know it is more than a player, but it does the best for playback of mkv's... dual core usage etc..

    plex

    Plex is more like Front Row than a simple standard video player.

    I've never used it, though, and I've never had to play a .mkv file, so it may be a good choice.
