I found that the .mkv files cannot well played:

the sound is OK, but the picture is very slow and it lag behind too
much behind sound.

I also installed VLC player in my computer and related codecs, but the
case is reverse comparing to mplayer:

the picture is OK, but there is no sound and subtitle…

The method I use for adding codec support to SLED without installing
