Now, you happen to mention 'MKV' files. Well, I have some of those and tried them with Winamp. This time the video is there and looks great, but the audio has a lot of noise/distortion, though the dialogue is somewhat comprehensible.

Audio :

ID : 2
Format : AC-3
Format/Info : Audio Coding 3
Mode extension : CM (complete main)
Codec ID : A_AC3
Duration : 45mn 28s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 448 Kbps
Channel(s) : 6 channels
Channel positions : Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE
Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Compression mode : Lossy
Stream size : 146 MiB (26%)
Language : English


any ideas on a fix? -thnx!

If that is the case already then I haven't a clue why the sound is screwed up sorry.
