<Just getting back to this project after a long weekend of other
projects...> Yes, that is correct; not only do they need to be the
same resolution, but the same bitrate as well. Certainly limits the
usefulness of the tool - however, I'm not familiar with matroska, so I
don't know what's involved.
I have a larger number of these disparate mkv's - I will probably just
put them in the same folder under /videos and see if I can't use the
"play next" flag with the internal player...
