I have some files but my cousin told me that if I don't reach the requirements, it will jump on me. I wanna know the minimal requirements for to play it with out it jumping on me or a good program that would work so it won't jump.

Dell latitude C640 mother board
512 Ram
32 MB Radeon 7500
Pen 4, 2000 MHz
Digital Flat panel screen

1800 Athlon
32 Nividia
512 ram
Don't remember screen or mother board

If I can't, a converter would be nice as well.

Since I can't edit it. This is a video file and some people tell me its one of those Super High quality files. Something you see in a HDTV.

..and ALSHOW is another good one which will tell you if it needs another codec

SUPER is a good program to convert anything. It is available at the bottom of this page

As you say, Matroska are HQ so better to try and play them as is.

MKV files are Matroska coded video files. VLCPlayer and KLite Mega Codec pack both can play them.
I have played them on my old-old P3 with 128 MB ram. Your computer can play them fine :thumbsup:

Yes Matroska encoded files are real superb in compression at very less quality reduction. But not as good as HDTV.
You can compress a 5GB DVD into a 500 MB MKV file with a basic VCD quality.
