    Default VLC player crashes trying to open mkv files

    Hi,

    My vlc player cannot open mkv files for some reason :S I checked and it seems like it complied with --enable-mkv option, so no problem in that. When I open it in the terminal and try to open mkv file, last thing in the message is "segmentation fault". So, is there a way that I could solve this?

    Best Regards,

    Yaşar Arabacı
