I am having issues with the DVD rip of the Complete Best.

I have Mac OS X (specifically, I have Jaguar--haven't gotten around to upgrading to Panther yet) and I'm having problems finding something that will let me play mkv files. I know there are a few other Mac users lurking around here, so I'm curious as to whether and how everyone else has dealt with this. I tried updating MPlayer, but the latest version doesn't open files properly when I run it, for some reason. The newest version of VLC gives me audio but no video.

So, two questions.

Does anyone have a workable solution for playing mkv on Mac OS X?

If not, has the file been converted to avi or some other standard format, and if so, where could I find that and make life easier?

Someone post link to .avi file. Check old posts, and you should find it :)

Ohhh, found it. I'd actually seen that already, but I didn't make the mental connection of Xvid = avi. *doesn't know much about encoding formats ^^;;*

I couldn't get the .mkv to work either, but yeah, someone posted a .avi recently. XD

It's still up and working if you need a copy of it ^^

the problem with the mkv is the video codec they used in the container: Realvideo10. I don't know how to work on a mac, but for those using a pc: download RealAlternative: http://www.freecodecs.net/files/realalt128[www.free-codecs.com].exe
and it SHOULD work... at least, it worked for me ^^;

Also, just uninstalling the old Mplayer and reinstalling a full, new version seemed to work for us. I'm running Panther, but I'm not sure if it'll make a huge difference.
