    i have an mkv movie file , and a separate srt, i usually would use virtualdub but in this instance virtualdb does not recognize mkv's . anyone have an easy alternate way i can do this? or do i have to convert mkv to avi? and if so whts the best way to do it?

    You would find more help in one of the video encoding forum rooms!

    The ideal tool to combine a SRT file into an existing MKV file is mkvtoolnix ( mkvmerge ). Latest version is 1.4.0 and was released yesterday :

    http://mkvmerge.matroska.org

    Just fire up mmg.exe, load the MKV, load the SRT, specify a language for it and mux them into a new MKV.

    Alternatively, you could try VirtualdubMod or avi-mux GUI instead of mkvmerge/mmg, but be aware VirtualdubMod is based on the old Video for Windows API and cant handle most modern video codecs, like h.264 and Realvideo ( RV9/RV10 ), so mkvmerge is clearly the recommended tool for MKV handling.
