Well I use the one titled macosx. It's the default if your computer 
supports it. This may be specific to the OS as well. I am running 
10.3.9. I have no problem rewinding mkv (its usually how I get to where 
I want to fast forward to, fast forward then rewind by normal steps to 
the place) but when I try to fast forward it does an exponential 
increase in fast forward amount the closer I am to the end of the 
video. So if I am half way through a half hour video and hit the over 
arrow once (which is set as default to go forward 10 seconds) it once 
it will sometimes jump to the end and close the video or almost to the 
end. If I fast forward at the beginning it goes forward about 15-20 
seconds instead of 10, a much smaller amount.
