    Hi, i'm using lion latest version. I have some movies with .mkv format but spotlight doesn't find them. How can I add "mkv" as a known extension?

    "Movies" is checked at spotlight preference panel and I've already reindexed the whole drive, but they still don't appear.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try re-indexing your drive again, then restart your computer: Spotlight: How to re-index folders or volumes

    It doesn't work, I've re-indexed the whole drive. Spotlight doesn't know that a .mkv file is a movie and should be indexed.

    Any ideas how to fix this? Which mdimporter should I edit? :(
