Saying it's an MKV says nothing. Maktrosa is a container format, it can have any kind of video (and audio, and subtitles, etc..) within it - and that is what counts in the decoding.

You should use the CCCP or mPlayer to play video files - they are the best codecs/players out there. VLC is OK, but some of it's decoders are not as good.

Frankly, the only real answer is to get a better CPU or don't multitask - I don't believe there are that many players that support GPU decoding over a wide range of formats.

Yeah, that's pretty standard fare for high definition video. If you have hardware audio decoding (like my Logitech Z-5500s) then you can let that decode the audio and save yourself a bit of CPU power (-hwac3 flag for mplayer).

Other than that, x264 is a good codec for compression, but requires more power to play. If you convert it to another codec, you will either take up more space or loose quality.
