    Unhappy Help with MKV support

    I have been trying to watch my anime (mostly all in mkv. Booo!!) through my USB external hard drive.

    I figured out that MPlayer freezes anytime i try to load a mkv
    I am now running GeeXboX on my wii and it will load the mkv but its so slow and totally lags out that it eventually freezes and i have to unplug my wii.

    Any good programs out there to play mkv? and if not does anyone have any idea if mkv will eventually be playable on the wii?

    Thanks in advance

    The Wii just doesn't have the hardware to handle it.

    I have a modded Xbox that can play back MKV
    it seems to me that with all the wii can do playing something as simple as a video shouldnt overload it

    It works with some mkv apparently but it has to be a smaller resolution. A lot of the mkv we see is HD stuff and the Wii won't stand a chance.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Are there any good conversion programs that will also keep my subtitles in place?
