extract the subtitesl as stated above! with mkvextractgui!
now go to total video coverter I cant give the serial but its easy to find;)! now add file chose the format you want and somewhere after that has an option about subtitles browse them and convert you are done!
If you want to keep it simple try Any Video Converter as suggested above. I´m a complete noob with this stuff and it took me about five minutes to figure it out with this program. Very easy. Thanks for the tip Marco Freire. Much appreciated.
I tried format factory. I converted an .mkv file to .mp4, but the hardcoded subs did not come over. As with just about every conversion program I’ve tried, non bring over the hard coded subs when its in .mkv format, and most that allow editing will cause the video and audio to go out of sync. You’d think that with so many “professed” software engineers around, they’d come up with an application that will actually convert everything that is contained in the container file, and also allow some editing, such as increasing the volume, since many .mkv files, for some reason, come with very low volume. I’ve yet to find an application that will allow the increase of volume and a conversion of the .mkv format to .avi or .mp4 that is playable on most machines.
