MKV file - video slower than audio

I am trying to play an MKV file! - the video playback is always a lot slower than the audio.

I have tried several different media players including MPC,VLC,WMP,DIVX, real player and more...

I have also tried what seems to be millions of different codecs. Any ideas?

MKV is a file extension of Matroska file for storing video (with subtitles and audio). You can download some free MKV player Software to play MKV files. Try some players with full MKV support.

Best MKV Lossless Conversion to Play onto Western Digital Media Player Plus


Lossless MKV Converter for Mac Lion and Windows 7-Final Mate <br />My understanding on Conversion and Rewrapping HD videos to MKV <br /><br />Do you feel puzzled when there are some sayings about AVCHD to <b>MKV conversion with lossless quality</b>? Actually, it may indicate two kinds of conditions. One is to convert the MTS/M2TS files to MKV with re-encoding, which may take a long time for transcoding. There is another method to get the format change in seconds, i.e. to remux AVCHD to MKV with rewrapping. While there are some friends asking me about the remuxing camcorder videos to MKV, here I would like to share with you my understandings on the video conversion and rewrapping. <br /><br />With the video conversion, there are video conversion tools on Windows and Mac. Here I would like to talk about AVCHD to <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/mkv_lossless_conversion_with_aunsoft_final_mate_for_mac_on_lion/">MKV lossless conversion</a></b> with rewrapping. <br /><br /><b>Benefits of remuxing videos to MKV:</b> <br />1. Super fast speed, and just a few seconds needed. <br />2. Retain raw quality without transcoding. <br />3. Keep file in small size. <br /><br /><b>Why rewrap camcorder videos to MKV?</b> <br />Even though some players are supposed to play AVCHD camcorder files in .mts or .m2ts format, some may also face problem when playing the MTS/M2TS files. For example, the Western Digital Live Plus, Eminent HD media player cannot play some AVCHD files. <br /><br /><b>How does it work to rewrap/remux videos to MKV?</b> <br />Aunsoft Final Mate can pick the video data and audio data of the source file, and use the MKV container to keep the video data and audio data. In this way, there is no compression of the video and audio data. Only the container is changed from .mts or .m2ts to .mkv. <br /><br />If you are using Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard or 10.5 Leopard, the easy steps below will help you choose lossless MKV output with Aunsoft <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate-mac/">Final Mate for Mac</a>. For Windows 7 users, Aunsoft <a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Final Mate for Windows</a> would work as lossless MKV converter with similar process. <br /><br />First, connect your camcorder to Mac/PC via USB cable, follow the Final Mate camera wizard to import AVCHD footage to the program. Choose the clips from the camcorder tab, drag and drop to the timeline to create a lossless movie. Click the icon next to the movie name on the Movie tab, and then choose MKV format. The click the Export button below the volume option, and the HD video will be remixed to MKV file will be ready in a few seconds. <br /> <br />The image below shows that the 3-minute movie could be rewrapped from MTS to MKV within 3 seconds. Give it a try and hope it helps. <br /> <br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />For users with JVC camcorders with MOD or TOD as video files, Aunsoft Final Mate would also help you remux MOD/TOD videos to MKV for easier playback and sharing.

Convert MKV to vob or mp4 for playback on PS3 with your needed audio track


I'm trying to convert an MKV files to the format of vob or mp4 for playback on my PS3. The thing is that the mkv file contains two audio tracks, English and French. For some reason, the French track is the default track, but I can understand English only, so I have to look around the Internet for a program that allows me selecting English track as output audio track. After trying out couples of converters, finally I came across Pavtube MKV Converter in a forum, and found some good reviews on it. It really saved me a lot. Share it here, hope it is exactly what you are looking for. Please find a step-by-step instruction from my following contents.
First off, you can free download Pavtube MKV Converter here.
1. Launch Pavtube MKV Converter and click "Add" button to load MKV files
As soon as the file is loaded, you can double click the file name to preview the movie.

2. Click "Properties" icon to select your needed audio track
You are allowed to click on the drop-down menu of "Audio Stream ID" to see which one is your needed audio track. After your selection is done, do remember clicking "OK" button to save your choice.

3. Click on the pull down menu of "Format" to select mp4 or vob as output format for PS3
I chose "PS3 Video (720P) MPEG-4 (*.mp4)" for instance. To output vob files, you can select "VOB Format" firstly, and then select a format according to your own requirement.

4. Click "Settings" button to do advanced settings
If you want to adjust the video and audio parameters to achieve a special video and audio quality, you can click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters like codec, image size, bit rate, etc to whatever you like. To get a smaller file size, you can select smaller values, but there will be some video loss to some extent; to get a better quality, you can select larger values, while the file size will be enlarged without doubt. That is to say you'd better make a good balance between the output file size and the file quality. If you are not good at it, you can totally skip this step, because the default settings can satisfy you needs basically.

5. Click "Convert" button to start converting mkv to mp4 or vob
Once finished, you can get the resulted files via clicking on "Open" button effortlessly. Now, it's time to enjoy the movie on your PS3 via your wide screen TV.
The end! Hope this helps.
