TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress can open .mkv files

TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress is one of the most advanced and popular video encoders in the market. Personally, i like its simplicity and wonderfull GUI. It can convert to many video file formats.
But, TMPGEnc has trouble opening some Matroska (.mkv) files. It displays this message:

To resolve this problem, all you have to do is open notepad and type:
DirectShowSource("D:\Movies\Spike Video Game Awards 2010.mkv") and save the file as "filename.avs" (DO NOT FORGET TO ADD .AVS AFTER FILENAME).

Now open the created avs file in TMPGEnc and the associated mkv file will be opened successfully.
