    I can't seem to find any reliable or useful info on how to play MKVs in Linux without getting tearing in the video. Wondering if anyone here has found a fix.

    Have you tried MPLAYER or SMPLAYER? What distro do you use? What graphics card?

    I went back to VLC and realized that it works well after all!

    If you are not satisfied with it then try smplayer, it's way simpler than vlc.


    Cheers

    I like VLC, I used it in Windows all the time before switching to Media Player Classic, the reason for the switch being that MPC lets you zoom in on video about 20pixels at a time, which is pretty useful for watching regular widescreen stuff since it usually has black bars at the top and bottom. I wish I could find a player for Linux that allows me to do the same (VLC sort of does that, if you change the aspect ratio, but it takes away just a tiny bit more picture than zooming by hand does).

    If your watching anime use smplayer. Read my styled subs tutorial. Smplayer is better than vlc.
