What is "it"? Which player (standalone program or embedded in web
browser as a plugin) are you using?

I've installed mplayer which plays video and audio in MKV format
just fine. Maybe you are missing a codec that is required (because
MKV basically is a containter format, like AVI, with video and
audio and maybe other data in a specific codec)...
