Default how to play this file properly?

I have got a movie file in mkv format. It does play in WMP, but haltingly, frequently freezing and restarting. What's the trick I am missing? A new codec, perhaps? pl help.

VLC Media Player can also play them. I've run them before without any problems. You can get the player for free here.
