MKV is just a package. Realtek treat all packages as just containers for streams, streams which must have embedded data. The chips don't really play files. VLC is happy to use, and fix, any package data to make a file play. You can try using mkvtoolnix to remux the mkv. That in it self can add missing stream data. Otherwise you have to put it in by hand when you use it.
