matroska files containing theora video streams cannot be played...
i found this thread on the mailinglist concerning the issue:

i understand little of video-codec and mplayer internals, but can you not make it work "somehow"?

matroska is really great, and i have encoded many movies to vorbis+theora+mkv.

but i cant play them :(

thank you very much!

  • op_sys changed from FreeBSD to All
  • rep_platform changed from PC (x86) to All

vlc has support for playing theora inside matroska in svn.
this is the patch:

maybe that helps solving the issue in mplayer.

thank you very much
