    Anyone know what an MKV file is?

    I recently downloaded a movie from torrent and it came with nothing but .MKV files and 1 .SFV file, how do I use it?

    .mkv is a video file.
    .srt is subtitles

    Use VLC media player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    Free player and plays all files :wink:

    matroska (*.mkv) is not a coded, but more of a file format thats suppose to be superior the *.avi that has almost the same features as the *.ogm format but allows smaller file sizes (i don't really see the diff).

    You're able to view them in windows media player but it would be stupid because

    1) It will be messy, you will have to download a few things to get it fully working on WMP

    2) MPK is made to store soft titles and other audio files that allow you to switch off from 1 to another

    I recommend you download VLC Media Player. It plays almost anything by simply click and drag to it.
