The mplayer plugin seem very old and may not work neatly with the
As I understand the mplayer plugin, it just launches an external
player - this won't work on the Raspberry Pi. But technically
speaking, it shouldn't be that hard to write a plugin which browses
through mkv files, reads them and passes the packets to VDR's output
device by implementing a dedicated player class. But that's probably
not the way you asked. ;-)
Maybe simply moving the MKV files inside the recordings tree, and
creating a vdr index for each work in some way.
Personally I convert mkv files to VDR recordings. Since you don't need
to reencode anything this is quite fast and easy and you'll get all
the comfort you're used from VDR. This even works for BD rips on the
Raspberry, including subtitles and DTS sound tracks.
