Streaming MKV with Windows 7

Support for DivX Plus HD video using Media Foundation in Windows 7 to stream MKV to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with the DivX Plus Codec Pack.

Tech Preview now with DivX for Windows (11/03/2009)

The DivX Plus Tech Preview: MKV on Windows 7 is now part of the DivX for Windows software bundle. This means you can now use one installer for all your DivX software, as well as receive updates as soon as they become available.

If you have already installed previous versions of the tech preview, we recommend uninstalling and then installing the new DivX for Windows bundle here:

Currently, the R3 version of the tech preview is included with the bundle, so there are no updates other than its inclusion in the main installer, but as already mentioned, you'll be ready for updates as soon as they're available.

Enjoy and spread the word to all those you know putting together fresh Windows 7 installations!

Location for test MKV files?

I'd like to test this out but don't have any MKV files handy. Without having to hit the torrents can somebody direct me to some test MKV files?
