Please try to install VLC from Synaptic then try to open your .mkv file with it. Should work better.

Thank you.
I tried,VLC , it can play .mkv file,the quality of the picture is very good,but it has no voice. KPlayer can play the .mkv file with voice, but the quality of the picture is not as good the VLC player.
The two kinds of player have no good support for Chinese language,when I switch the subtitle language from English to Chinese, The Chinese character is shown as "口口口口口口口口"。
