Support for MKV chapters in external files

Mplayer does not seem to support MKV files, where some chapters reside in external files.

See example on the linked URL, the opening and ending of the MKV version are in separate files, and should play automatically, but mplayer just seems to skip them.

Tested with mplayer-nogui package 1.0.rc2svn20071207-0.3

There is already linked/ordered chapters support in matroska splitter in this git:
Maybe apply this patches to upstream mplayer?

  • bug_file_loc changed from to,

Updated the link to a working example

See the notes on ordered chapters. Episodes 6+ use them and are an example of it not working with mplayer.

also on windows can be used in conjunction with some players to get ordered chapters to work.
