    Use pot player. BTW win 10 sucks for video players. Most will crash after 30 minutes or so. Stick to win 8 or 7 if you want flawless playback.

    thats a very very good video player and thank you very much for suggesting it, I will be using this instead of WMP for now. But I really wish to fix the WMP in being able to play my MKV files.
    The weird part is every MKV file i had on my computer before upgrading to 10 from 8.1 the codecs on those work fine but not on any more new MKV files that I have gotten after upgrading to 10.
