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.
I was able to convert an MKV to MP4 using Freemake Video converter or Aimersoft without a problem, the thing is that when I add the subtitle, the output size increases enormously for example it goes from its original 1.4Gb to 4.6Gb..and I think that is a lot..Im kind of new at this and was wondering if anyone can help me find a way to keep the original size and quality.
Thanks in advance
I’ve been reading so many different forums on how to convert MKV to AVI. I tride Format Factory, but it doesn’t support 1080p videos and some YouTube downloaded videos. Furthermore, it always crashes suddenly.
Finally, I decided to give Faasoft Video Converter a try. This tool is professional yet easy-to-use. Besides, the service is excellent.
I’d recommend Acethinker Video Converter which I have used for many years. It’s a free web-based application to convert videos, you don’t have to install anything. And here are the steps to convert MKV video to AVI video.
1. Launch your web browser and go to the Online Video Converter, you can google search for it.
2. Click ‘select files to start’, and then drag and drop your MKV video into the app.
3. Click the Format drop down list, select AVI as output format.
4. Click the Convert button, the App will ask you where to save the converted file.
5. Click Start the run the conversion, it will take a few minutes to finish the task. When the conversion done, you will find the converted file in the folder you set in step 4. Done.
