MKV on iMac 2011

Postby fremonster » Mon May 23, 2011 5:08 am

I just recently purchased a new iMac and transferred all my information from my previous MacBook through Time Machine. I used to be able to watch MKV files on the MacBook but I can no longer watch them on the iMac.

I'm not sure if the transfer or new computer are to blame. Nothing has changed other than the updated hardware. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Perian a number of times.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what we're supposed to do here without error messages.

The error message reads: "The document "File.mkv" could not be opened. QuickTime Player cannot open files of this type.

I've tried multiple files that all work on my MacBook Air (even when they are streamed from the iMac). Not sure if this might help, but I upgraded my iMac graphics card to 2GB. The graphics card model is "AMD Radeon HD 6970M".
