    Convert an MKV file to a DVD ?

    Hi guys , I downloaded some movies in .mkv format. I wanted to know if it's possible to convert a .mkv to a DVD, so I can watch it on my DVD player ( and TV of course ).

    Thanks.

    i'd like to know this as well. i've searched the forums but haven't found an answer yet. ideally i'd like to be able to do this with a single easy-to-use tool

    Yes you can. You need Convert X to DVD, which you'll have to run with Wine. It will convert avi mpeg mkv and other formats to DVD(iso).

    do you need wine because it is a windows program? if so i guess i can run it on my winxp virtualbox. but i would rather not have to send data between vbox and ubuntu.

    i have also read that some people use Devede, but it apparently shrinks the size of the file when making the DVD according to this guy: http://forum.videohelp.com/topic349005.html

    are there any other options out there?

    I believe that Handbrake or Devede could do it.

    he is talking about making a dvd from a MKV file, is that what you are doing or just going from AVI to DVD?

    Devede did the job for me converting an MKV file to DVD. No problem whatsoever. Quality was good. Took a long time though.

    Hello,
    Devede works, but it doesn't allow you to choose more than one audio for your dvd. I'm looking for a program that allows you to convert a mkv file to a dvd but keeping the different audios and subtitles of the original file. If anyone knows a program to do so, please let me know.
    Thank you.
