Just to clarify, mkv is a container that can hold a wide variety of audio and video codecs.  While Live supports the mkv container, it doesn’t support every single audio and video condec contained within.

As Fugger noted, you can get some freeware that will examine that file and tell you what’s inside – if on a PC I’d actually recommend using mkvmerge because if the audio is non-standard you can convert it using that tool (in many cases).
