how to burn mkv files

posted in Encoding

?:( HI, I would like to know if there is a way to convert mkv to mpeg or avi so I can burn it after. I downloaded the matroski pack and WMP can read it but I can’t open the file in nero to burn it......... reply


VirtualDubMod, a spinoff on virtualdub, can natively decode matroska files. You can convert mkv to avi. If the codec is supported in an avi container you could do a direct stream copy (lossless transfer of video/audio data). reply

Feedback this article, the author turns MKV to AVI. reply


So far the best software I have used time and time again and it’s never let me down is Pazera. They do MKV to avi/mpg, as well as other formats and video and audio suites. The great thing with it specially with MKV being a container rather than a format is I can look at the info and it tells me such thing like H264 video mpg4, ac3 audio at 384mbps. I can output as Xvid using the same settings or NTSC/PAL DVD format.If you output MKV to DVD mpg you can edit it easily in a editor or use it like it is and burn to DVD. I’ve yet to find Pazera software fail me... plus it’s free :D

The way to think about MKV as I do is more like a zip file. It’s not a 'format' in itself as it can have numerous video and audio formats inside it, it’s a video 'container'. Having an MKV codec is fine as long as the MKV file has used the ones you have installed, if not then you’re back to square one. I find personally MKV to be more trouble that it’s worth but some people will insist on using them. Pazera MKV to AVI so far has been the best and easiest thing I used and it’s never failed me. reply
