Internal player doesn't like mkv files

Description

In MythVideo?, after setting the player to "Internal"(to use the internal MythTV player), when trying to view files using the Matroska(mkv) container, the video is squeezed to only one or two pixels high, so it's unviewable. Also, trying to bring up information (timecode status, and description) doesn't seem to work. Avi files on the other hand work just fine. I haven't tried any other extensions.

The internal player only supports what ffmpeg supports.

ffmpeg supports matroska.

ffplay /path/to/an/File.mkv shows Audio and Video. (Seeking seems to be buggy, and subtitles doesn't work but you can watch it)
I tried to update mythtv/libs/libavformat/matroska.c to current ffmpeg-cvs-version. (only one line diff).

...It doesn't help
