Since it may be some other app, have you tried using it on a clean boot or Safe Mode?
It worked for months in Windows 7 so it's pretty weird. Especially since the version that worked won't work on reinstall. It's like as soon as I touch it something sends a WM_CLOSE message to the window.
Thanks for the input on MkvMania but I use BD Rebuilder heavily and I have to use the versions of FFDShow and Matroska splitter compatible with it. That's the whole reason I want to be able to look at the PGS subs.
Splash Lite player plays .mkv very well but there's no PGS subs support. You have to spend $20 for the Pro version. I don't play whole movies on my PC. So I don't want to spend for a player just to test sample a video.
There were some ports of Linux type players but the controls are so foreign, and they insist on using black on black Gui so there's just about zero chance of figuring out how to use them. It's really annoying this user interface stuff is considered acceptable. Might as well have command line controls if you can't see the buttons on the Gui.
