    Two major problems with playing MKV files


    Good day,

    I just noticed 2 major problems with playing MKV files using the native Movies & TV app in Windows 10 Pro x64 that I'm running.

    1. I'm not sure if Windows 10 fully supports MKV files yet but audio from some MKV files couldn't be played with the Movies & TV app. The video plays fine but it's just muted.

    2. Enabling subtitles using the built-in feature of the Movies & TV App causes a horrible lag and stutter of the whole MKV video.

    Anyone experienced these?

    Just tried it playing an MKV, no sound. Good job I don't use the piece of crap. Kodi or VLC for me.

    I'm aware that other videoplayers don't have this problem. I was wondering if these 2 problems are bugs that are only at my end or not.

    Does enabling subtitles in the Movies & TV app cause stutter in the MKV video for example?

    I noticed that for some MKV files, the audio plays normally while for others the audio is missing. I guess it depends on the format of the audio in the Matroska package.

    However, the stutter/lagging of the video caused when enabling subtitles in the app is always there.

    Most likely correct in your first statement, probably using audio that the Movies and TV App does not have Codec for.

    MKV files are actually multimedia container formats. This essentially means that it is a container that can incorporate audio, video, and subtitles into a single file even if they use a different type of encoding. For instance, you could have a MKV file using VP8 video with Vorbis audio, or more commonly, using H.264 for video and something like MP3 or AAC for audio.

    I was talking about MKV files that have subtitles built in. Usually in the Movies & TV app you'll have the option to choose a subtitle ("CC" button next to "Play" etc.) for the MKV file.

    jds63 : I had the feeling this would be the cause. However, I read that Windows 10 would have full MKV support but I guess releasing it to the public doesn't mean that.
