Matroska-Playback

Matroska-Playback is an overview of the players and their ability to use Matroska features.

Matroska is a container that offers the possibility to play a video alternatively.
This means, for example, that video content can be swapped or dropped, or additional video from other files can be used.

The video can be rotated.

Matroska even offers a menu option, which is not well supported yet.

There are test files for each Matroska feature.

Whenever I have some time, I try to add more players to the list. If you like you can also use the test files for your own favorite player and tell me how the results were.

Furthermore, other external DirectShow filters can be used, such as the Haali Splitter

Dead, no. But not really used anymore. But I like Haali's TRACKSETEX and some of my mkv's use it.

I'm not sure of the official names of stuff I've used.

I'm guessing Basic Chapters (just marker points in the video), and Editions (alternate cuts).

Assuming rotation is just a flag, that's something I wanted to use recently but concluded that MKV doesn't support it, so I've reverted to MP4.

Yes. Editions are mostly used for different movie versions. But you can use it for other things. For example: I have TNG as DVD and Blu-ray. And the Blu-ray-mkv's have an extra edition for the DVD chapters, because the markers are different to the Blu-ray.

Matroska supports video rotation via the ProjectionPoseRoll element. It can be set/changed with mkvpropedit. But at present there is no player which support this flag.
Three players(from which I know) offers video rotation via Matroska Tags.

How's the ProjectionPoseRoll element stored, versus tags?

Can either be in-place edited in all cases?

Elements like ProjectionPoseRoll can be edited with a single command for mkvpropedit or a few clicks in MKVToolNixGUI (Header Editor). Tags can be edited in-place as well but it's more complicated because you basically extract XML, parse/edit and then re-integrate it. MKVToolNix does the XML extraction and re-integration but the difficult XML editing is your own job. But hubblec4's chapterEditor offers help with editing tags.
