Fuc***g spam for useless paying product...

In fact, just use mkvmerge as usual (totally free), and in the third tab for the video file, chose to disable the header compression.
The file will be readable without any problem.

I had the same problem on my mede8er with some mkv files: a blank (black) screen, but i could hear the audio. Some mkv files didnt work at all ("invalid file").

I tried the solution from the opening post, but the .CMD file didnt work. The cmd file says that it requires mkvtoolnix 4.1.1, but the downloadlink from the post is mkvtoolnix 4.2.0, so maybe thats why. So i now i fix my files manually in mkvtoolnix 4.2.0.

Here is a screenshot with instructions:

Its dutch but the layout for other languages is the same so it will be useful for non-dutch too.

that cmd don't require 4.1.1, in principles can be done to work with any version.
it is just a batch script.

@Nosoul is right, use v4 if is fine for you

Try latest v4.0.4 or beta5.
is very possible to have another issue quite different then header compression

i dont know what the problem is exactly......
but i had a problem with an mkv file which just wont be able play,rename or delete.....
the only thing that shows when i right click is send to,open with etc.
so i was searching the internet and FOUND THE SOLUTION FOR MY PROBLEM.
i just renamed the folder of the mkv file and the mkv file started acted normally.
now i am able to play it and do watever stuff i want

JUST RENAME THE FOLDER OF THE MKV FILE

i did not discover this solution but i found it on other forums where the user has the same problem with a jpeg file.he just renamed the folder and it worked for him. i done the same and it worked with me too...........
