Watching .mkv files on a 40PFL9705
Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I can't seem to post a new message in the Streaming forum.
I have just purchased a 40PFL9705 and have connected my laptop to it via a wireless connection. I have several .mkv files on my laptop that I would like to watch on the TV but they don't play (most of the files aren't even recognised and the ones that are keep getting an error message "file format not supported".
I've been looking around here all morning nad think that they are not in the right codec format (they need to be h.264) but I don't understand what this means as I'm very new to this!! Also does the bitrate (again I don't know what this means!) and frames per second figures matter?
Any advice anyone can give me on getting this to work I'd be very very grateful.
lies, damn lies and statistics
...yeah and i bet 99% of all car owners are speeders and philips never broke any laws.

for all fellows who can't read moronic formats (because they don't want to pirate MS Office just to see a file, because the publisher was too lazy to put it in a standardized format), here's the unofficial supported format list:
