I just used VSO ConvertXtoDVD and it worked like a charm. I just put in the .MKV file and clicked on convert and popped a dvd into the burner and it did it all. When it was done it played perfectly in my dvd player. reply

HI there,

I was wanting to burn an .MKV file to a dvd, BUT in DVD FORMAT.

I have the WinAvi, and DVD Shrink Already, as well as NERO.

How would I be able to convert, so I could easily play on a DVD Player, such as converting it to an dvd image, but then not.

Sorry if you don t fully understand. Any help would be appreciated. reply

ConvertXtoDVD handles this type of file. It is also one of the quickest programs to convert media files to DVD format. reply

After readind this topic (almost every quote!!!) I found out how to convert mkv 2 DVD and I tried it with ConvertXtoDVD. The result: It worked! I had multiple audio streams and I could use subs! The problem now: the mkv file I wanted to encode also had multiple video streams, but only the first video stream encoded.. Does anybody knows how to have all the video streams included..? reply

Thanks Ozzy14.

I was just curious,(being said to either you, or anybody else),would I have to add an extra step, for this to follow through, such as having to convert my .MKV file, to AVI, then to an “image” file?

Hopefully there s someone with knowledge of this conversion, as I am green at this sorta thing.

Thanks,

Cheers reply

Christian,

i couldnt care a $h1t less about what you call video!!!!

i care about downloading files for hours only to find out they are not ISO of a REAL DVD but rather they are a
U S E L E S S piece of file which is NOT the DVD i wanted and is UTTERLY useless for even playing because to actually use i i have to convert it to some R E A L video format.

in short - when your so called COMPRESSED format is of ANY whatsoever USE for ANYONE, i will consider it more then just a fiction and a TOTAL waste of my bandwidth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! reply

My buddy told me that burning an .img file of a DVD onto a DVD-R with PowerISO is much much faster than burning with nero reply

The audio track in your MKV is very likely a 5.1 Dolby surround 6 channel AAC, and DVD Santa cant encode that to anything that is DVD compatible (namely 5.1 AC3).

The only way of getting this done is to

- get mkvtoolnix from http://mkvmerge.matroska.org , install it, fire up mmg.exe and load your MKV file

- disable all the audio streams (=languages) you are not interested in (i.e. remove the hooks), specify a new file name and create a new MKV (press 'start muxing'), containing only the one audio stream you are interested in

- load the special installer of Foobar2000 (http://www.foobar2000.org), enable matroska plugin, and load your MKV file in it

- convert your 5.1 AAC audio track into a high bitrate Stereo (=2.0) MP3 track (320 kbps, the maximum). To do that, right click on the MKV file, goto 'conversion settings' and specify MP3 and the bitrate as out put format. The make another right click and do a 'start conversion'

- load the MKV file in mmg.exe (mkvtoolnix) again, untick the remaining AAC audio track, and 'add' the new Stereo MP3 file. Mux a new MKV with the MP3 audio instead of the AAC audio

- retry DVDSanta

P.S. Alternatively you could also make sure that ffdshow_audio is doing the decoding on DirectShow for all AAC tracks, as DVD Santa is using DirectShow to read the MKV file, and enable 5.1 to 2.0 (Stereo) downmixing in the ffdshow settings, for all 5.1 audio tracks

Where do i enable(how) downmixing in the ffdshow settings for 5.1 to 2.0 reply

I got one of these MKV files and all I can say is avoid them like the plague, unless you have the hours involved to get these to a DVD burning state. MKV & MATROSKA SUCK THE BIG ONE!!
Forget all this great and helpful advice don’t download any of these crap files in the first place.

Dohh another idiot who doesnt understand why people use the MKV format. The film is Probably a ripped HD movie you plank, designed to be played at 720 or 1080 on a hd plasma/lcd tv (try get that quality from a dvd) why would you want to get it into a dvd burning state ? you can burn an mkv to a dvd with no problem whatsoever its as simple as drag and drop. If what u mean is to a VIDEO_TS folder in vobs and bups to be compatable on a stand alone dvd player, then I sudgest you download it in that format to begin with numpty reply

and yet another who is obviously still using KazAA to download LoL, try using newsgroups and read the nfo’s before downloading (just google newsgroups) you dont need to convert to any thing if you use the correct codec and player ( google MPC and CoreAVC) please dont slag of what you dont understand

I play all MKV’s on my 52 inch plasma with no trouble at all, just google it and you wil find out how reply

Download VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/).

Save your video file in whatever format you want and burn to DVD. reply

Wait, so exactly how do I extract a subtitle file for use?

Do I need to do so for ConvertXtoDVD?

Cause when I check the video trees, it shows that no subtitles were found, so I guess i have to tack them on myself right? reply
