MKV2AVI Review

Sven Sorensen
Converts MKV file containers to be more universal AVI files
A review of MKV2AVI by Sven Sørensen

MKV2AVI is a small video conversion utility which was created mainly to allow PlayStation (PS2. PS3, PSP, PSP Vita) owners to convert high definition MKV files to AVI suitable for playback.

As a portable application, installation of MKV2AVI is not required and thus you can run it from virtually any location and from any device such as a USB memory stick.

The usage of MKV2AVI is facilitated by an easy-to-use user interface which provides several options in a tabbed interface. It integrates support for AviSynth, XviD and XSUB to facilitate support for subtitles, the XviD codec and customization of sound output like bit rate and stereo sound.

Even though there are several more advanced options available to people who want to, the program can convert MKV files to AVI without changing the settings and just clicking the "Encode to XviD AVI" button.

Importing videos in to the application is not difficult and users can also just drag-and-drop MKV files directly from a Windows Explorer window in order to get started.

All in all, MKV2AVI is a useful program which can convert MKV files into near-universally playable XviD AVI files on many devices.

MKV2AVI features and highlights:
  • Convert any video stream inside a MKV container to XviD video in AVI container (via DirectShow)
  • Keep selected original audio stream
  • Convert DTS/AAC/MP3 audio streams to AC3 with bitrate conversion and downmixing or
  • Convert AC3 audio streams to Dolby Pro Logic II (2ch downmix) with bitrate conversion
  • Create Blu-Ray / AVCHD compatible output (using tsmuxer) without re-encoding
  • Compatible with PS3 with AVC profiles up to 4.1
  • If Blu-Ray or AVCHD buttons are used, no re-encoding is performed
  • Selected audio track is included in final compilation
  • All subtitle tracks from the source mkv are included
  • If .srt files with same name as the source mkv are found, they are added, too
  • For best results, use these buttons if your source video is full 16:9 (1280x720 or 1920x1080)
