Does anyone know of a .mkv viewer that can do frame-by-frame? I'm on a Mac, but if you know of a PC viewer that does it, give a shout too. I want to capture stills from movies, but so far I have not found a way to do frame-by-frame in such viewers as VLC Player. Sometimes something interesting only happens for 1 frame!

I don't know about media players but when I work with mkv files I use the VirtualDubMod editor (freeware). In the File tab you have an option called "Save image sequence", just mark the first and the last frame of the sequence you want, then hit the aforementioned option and the editor will do the trick.
If you want to make a video clip with audio of the same sequence it's a bit more complicated but that's not what you ask for so I leave that aside.

On a Mac get the Perian (perian.org) plug-in for QuickTime. It adds a whole load of useful codecs to QT which means you can an open the files just as you would any other on the Mac. The standard QT Player gives frame-by-frame seeking.
What I do with MKVs on my Mac is to load them up and then save them as MOV, it just saves the data re-wrapped without actually recoding it (this is H264 wrapped in an MKV). For some reason MKVs seem to get scanned through when you open them. Saving to MOV speeds things up.
