MPlayer has no problems playing the AVI files, however, playing the MKV files results in audio only, with a blank screen. Where lies the problem? In mkvmerge or mplayer? You can find samples at http://alicja.homelinux.com/~mats/stuff/vidsamp/.

Sorry, it seems I have been too late...
If you can point to the samples once more or upload to our server that
is welcome.
In general I suspect that MKV has used a special encoding for these
that we just haven't added support for yet.
