Oppo BDP-83 and MKV = trouble!


Active Member
Hi folks!

i was wondering if anyone has had problems with the Oppo BDP-83 and MKV files?

Basically I've been lent a couple of film documentaries by a friend that originated on BBC iPlayer I believe. They're in MP4 format so I used MKVmerge to convert them directly to MKV files (no re-encoding).

They're then put onto a memory stick. No matter what I do each time the player just freezes! It's incredibly frustrating. I've even tried un-muxing them using YAMB, and putting the video and audio back together again using the same and still no luck. Play fine on the PS3 or my laptop. I'm using the latest Oppo Beta firmware. Should I go back to using the latest stable firmware from May?
