i'm looking for a converter that converts MKV into AVI.
This what you're looking for - http://www.riverpast.com/en/support/tutorials/convert/mkv/avi.php ???
or virtualdubmod, which is free.
is there a guide for virtualdubmod? when i try to load the MKV file is says there are errors
1. MKV- the video may have a variable framrate.
2. couldn't lacoate a decompressor for format "YYYYY" (unknown)
use google to see if u can find a codec for it, unfortauntely i have never before tried to convert a MKV file to anything, in fact, id doubt i ever had one on my HDD
this is the first i've ever had and it's really pissing me off. would this be easier to convert it to MPEG
Well no program will openj it unless u have like an appropriate codec or something for it!
i've downloaded some codec packs. is there a way i can see if i've got the right codecs. i'm really new to all of this video stuff as u can probably tell.
Id search for them mate before ever installing a codec pack. codec packs can cause a lot of playback and encoding troubles for usually movie files!
i searched for MKV codecs on google and it came up with some sites with MKV codec packs. so i think i have the right codecs
Well if u do, try opening it in virtualdubmod again!
it didn't work, i have it with this file i'm gonna delete it. thanks for the help.
Alrite, sorry I cant help more than that!
you did help thanks to you i got TMPGEnc to convert it into MPEG, nice one mate
oh? cool then lol
it seems you didn't install the handler ? click the aux setup and install handler if you didn't.
i could change it into avi in a magick couple of second.
codec pack is evil
Yes especially Nimo, and you wouldnt believe the amount of people who recommend it lol
To Conny119 - Hi you said in a post around 14th July that you managed to convert an mkv to mpeg with TmpGenc. Is that correct, if so you must be a miracle worker and I would be soooo grateful if you could tell me how you did it. I have had a wretched mkv file, around 608MB, and have done just about everything with it, including almost wrecking my pc. In the end I burned it to a cd rw and have kept it in the hopes that one day I can do something with it
All i did was install lazy man's MKV codec pack
sometimes TMPGEnc doesn't accept them but just try agian and it'll load it.
my bad, when i said it will eat anything, it will.
i never encounter such videos, as i don't download, on a narrowband.
but i'll look into it.
i believe you
