Repair MKV files with Meteorite

Meteorite is a new open source project that intends to become the first software to repair broken Matroska (MKV) video files. Meteorite is in open beta and currently the only software that repairs MKV files. Meteorite doesn’t have much to call a GUI. Just drag an MKV file that refuses to play on a media player and drop it in Meteorite’s window. The program will automatically start scanning the file to detect any errors. If found the program will attempt to fix it and make the file playable.


All this happens automatically and the output file is saved in the same folder as the original file with the file name prefixed with “Meteorite.” For example, if the original file was called “video.mkv” the output file will be named “”

Meteorite has no buttons to click, displays no dialog boxes or any message of success or failure. The program writer says there are still lot of bugs to fix. I can’t say for sure whether it works, but sooner or later it will. If you do have a broken MKV file, do test it and let us know.


  1. Tried the tool for a mkv, that just won't play on my TV with inbuild mkv-support. Unfortunately it worked for more than an hour now and still nothing happened. I think it crashed due bugs.

  2. It does nothing, i drag and drop mkv into window and nothing happens

  3. It doesn't even do anything.

  4. Tried it with a 4.7Gb mkv file that only plays for 10 - 20 minutes before freezing. MeteoriteGUI does absolutely nothing - totally useless!

  5. Can someone who's lucky and Meteorite is working on their computer write what is the response of the program after dropping the file on the window? On my Vista nothing is happening (is there supposed to be some progress bar) and when I try to close the program, Windows say "the program stopped working" (I don't know the exact form in English Windows) and on my XP nothing happens BUT there is no the message when shutting down. The background on the program is really miserable, there could be at least a guide with few lines about how the program is supposed to behave when running properly...

  6. it does nothing, probably only works with xp.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
