    Out of the clear blue sky, VLC just stopped playing MKV files. I was watching a .MKV file just 15 minutes prior. I'll click on a MKV file and it'll just hang... or I'll open up VLC and open the .MKV file from there and it'll hang. Have the most recent version.

    I went to preferences and changed the preload so it wouldn't load all the videos in the directory and it still doesn't work.

    Tried Plex but Plex plays the video too fast.

    Any suggestions?

    Kind of odd...

    You can try Movist.

    You can also use VideoSpec to analyse the video and post the resulting report here, maybe the .mkv file is using some strange settings.
