Playing mkv files

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm having trouble playing mkv files in Kaffeine, or any other player on openSUSE, which generally doesn't come with this type of codec. I've already installed a mkv codec that I found in the openSUSE repository. Still, the player can't play this format. I tried installing VLC with a built-in codec for mkv, but ended up with lots of problems and decided to back out. What solution could I use to solve this problem? (HowTos)
