Convert and burn mkv file to DVD tips
You need to buy “Nero 10”, but make sure you purchase the extra required license for DTS, and BluRay Video/Authoring Plugins. You can burn MKV directly to DVD without having to spend hours converting which results in quality loss. Make sure you buy “NERO 10”, the older versions do not support MKV (BluRay).
Converting MKV to DVD is easy but what I want to know is how do I do this without affect or compressing the DTS audio?
From a 10gig 1080P MKV I can get a great looking DVD on 2 DVD dual layers, but for some reason I can never get back my true DTS sound it’s always stereo or AC3.
Anyone have any way to do this?
I just tested a good program - Mac DVD Creator, it can easily burn .mkv files to dvd on Mac.
Since matroska (mkv) is a rather exotic format, you will have to do the conversion in two steps. First you’ll have to convert the file to avi, then from there you can do your dvd authoring.
For mkv the conversion tool of choice is virtualdubmod (not to be confused with plain old virtualdub).
Once you open your file in virtualdubmod, pick direct stream copy for both audio and video (if it allows it) and save as an avi (that way you don’t have to do any recompression).
yo i tried to do this but the app wont open, when i try i get a dialog that says “The program can’t start because corona.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." I have Windows7 HP 64bit HELP lol
I have a site I think it helps you to convrt try this free video downloader
What is MKV?
MKV is a container format developed by Matroska. It can hold different types of video and audio. For example, there might be an .AVI file contained within the .MKV file.
The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free Container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows.Matroska is similar in conception to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only. High Definition movies in 720 or 1080 pixel width format are often encoded and packaged as a Matroska format video with a .mkv file extension.
If you want to play in DVD format, then run your files through ConvertXtoDVD. It’s simple. Drag, drop, and hit convert. It handles a wide variety of file types, and is a fantastic program overall. Simple to use as well.
okay, this board needs some reassurance.
I deal with MKV files on a regular basis, and im going to clear up any misconceptions.
for all you people out there saying “this guy is an idiot for putting it as a mkv file, what a noob he could of just used avi.." ...please, dont even bother opening your mouth if you dont know what your talking about.
MKV files are a new revolutionary way to pack information. An AVI is a codec used to play movies. an mkv file like a breifcase where you can put multiple layers of video and audio. NOT a codec. It could have multiple layers of audio, and video. This is good for true surround sound and dvd-like menus. It also has other cpu advantages, but theres really no point getting into that.
Now as for conversion.
As of today, there seems to be no way to convert an MKV file to a dvd while MAINTAINING THE HIGH DEFINITION RESOLUTION. Burning in 720p from mkv, right now, isnt possible.
but for you people out there who dont mind burning in 480 (regular dvd, standard definition resolution- 720 x 480 ) than its quite simple. All you need is one simple program. Its called Convert X to DVD by VSO. You can choose for it to fit on a dvd-5 or dvd-9, to get better quality. (dvd-9 is a dual layer, dvd-5 is a regular blank dvd) THATS ALL YOU NEED! the newer versions even burn it for you! conversion takes about an hour, for dual layer add another half to full hour to that. burning is burning, and ur done.
this is for people like people like Daz2. dont talk shit about something you know nothing about. Stupid people like you polute the internet and slow the process of evolution down. I dont understand how people can be as arrogant as you. Calling people noobs because your brain cant comprehend what your hearing.
I TRY TO COPY ALL MY MKV FILE TO MY MEDIA PLAYER BUT THE MOVIE ONLY PLAY FOR A FEW MIN AND STOP.
ANYONE PLS TELL ME WAT IS HAPPENING? DO I NEED TO CONVERT THE MKV FILE TO OTHER FORMAT?
