Thread: HELP!! I am trying to burn MKV to DVD

  1. #1
    I am using convertxdvd to convert mkv to dvd, but whenever it converts one of my backups, the converted file is 4.43gb, nero or convertxdvd will not burn it, it keeps telling me I need to use a dual layer 8.5gb dvd. I have the setting on convertxdvd to DVD-5

    Mastroskas (MKVs which are containers) DO NOT contain AVIs (Another type of container), so if the output is an AVI file then that means the matroska was encoded.

    I don't know how to burn a matroska to DVD (I just watch on PC), but I know that I don't want to encode a video twice and then watch it

    Is a type of video compression codec. Similar to Xvid or 264x. Hey peat moss I already know what it is but, just case your interested i got this from wikipedia.org

    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.[1] 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 completely open source. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (and audio) and .MKA for audio-only files.
    Matroska is an English word derived from the Russian word "matryoshka" (Russian: матрёшка, IPA: [mɐˈtrʲoʂkə]), which means "nesting doll" (the common Russian egg-shaped doll within a doll). This is a play on the container (media within a form of media/doll within a doll) aspect of the matryoshka as it is a container for visual and audio data.

    @joeynym

    DVDshrink, Avi2Dvd, and any dvd converter software should convert the file to a small enough size. Just google them. Or go here and see some other options.

You will get real DVD copies of your DVD collection winthin 30-40 minutes without any loss of quality. You get completely the same as the DVD movie you bought at high speed to the highest of quality without distortion.

    Using All2Avi is certainly one option but it is known to choke on h264 video files. Extracting just the video and audio files you want from the container, muxing them together and converting that will certainly get you the correct size file. I believe the reason your file is coming out too large is that convertx is not taking into acount the extra files usually found in an MKV container.

    If the contents of the MKV (you can view the contents and the particulars like english and japanese audio with MKV Merge GUI, and extract the individual files with MKV Extract GUI) are standard files like xvid or divx video and mp3 or ac3 audio then Virtual Dub Mod (opens MKV/OGM files) will allow you to choose the appropriate video and audio (disabling all the rest) and then it will mux the two together for you keeping the sync. That resulting file when saved should be more convertable than the original MKV provided the audio is in the more compatible CBR format as VBR audio has a tendency to go out of sync when converted to dvd (although convertx is better at this than others).

    I especially like Virtual Dub Mod for Aud-X which add ac3 support to V Dub and is the most versital of the V dubs in my opinion. If you google aud-x and visit their site, look under downloads for the aud-x codec and its special V Dub Mod version and also the FAQ section for tutorials on how to rip a dvd to avi with 5.1 audio using V Dub Mod, Aud-x and Dvd Decrypter.

    On the other hand if the MKV contains the geeky moron type files like H264 video and aac audio your just going to have to fight through the conversion. One way is to extract the audio separately as aac then using dbPoweramp Music Converter with the aac codec added to it convert the audio to uncompressed wav. Using All2Avi convert the h264 video to xvid or divx choosing "no audio" so you get a video only file (otherwise it usually crashes with audio included). Then using V Dub Mod open the audioless video and add the uncompressed wav in the streams section and set it to Full Processing and convert it to mp3 or ac3 at what ever bitrate (128? the smaller rate you choose the smaller the resulting file) and set the Video section to Direct Stream so the video is copied not reencoded and save the file.

    Either way, the resulting avi with one audio will certainly convert to the proper size for you. If you think this is a lot of work, don't blame me, blame the idiots who chose to use the moronic MKV container in the first place and don't download those files unless they are the only choice and then expect a fight to convert them. Its becoming more common place in the anime world to use this container and the stupider the codecs the better.
