    Matroska playback in Linux


    I'm looking for a native Linux media player that is good at playing Matroska files with styled subtitles. I have SMPlayer, MPlayer, Totem, and VLC, but none of them handle the subs well. For the time being I'm reduced to running a VirtualBox of XP when I want to watch HD Matroska vids with subs that actually work properly (i.e., are readable when lots of translation notes and such should appear on top of the screen). While I don't really have a big problem with running windows apps in Vbox, the very high def videos tend to get unsynced on video+subs/audio because they require so much cpu and its running in an emulated environment. Any help is appreciated.

    Try Mplayer from cvs, it is supposed to handle matroska flawlessly.

    Xine's not so bad, either.
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
