MKV To AVI With Subtitle 2.0 is a video conversion tool. I think the name is self descriptive. It allows you to convert MKV files to AVI files and hardcode subtitles into the final video. The application is really basic, its GUI consisting of only one screen. It requires that you install the CCCP codec pack in order to work. Once you do that, you will be able to not only convert from MKV files into AVI files but also from and to AVI, MP4, and several other formats. I tried processing an AVI compressed using an Xvid codec with SRT subtitles and converting it into an uncompressed AVI file. The video used up 2.5 gigabytes on the hard drive and the subtitles were effectively hardcoded to the video. There was one problem though. The image had too much blue tint. I am not able to access the video settings in the trial version. The full version might solve that. Also, you are limited to a minute of video in the trial version. It took nearly 3 minutes to process the video, and it wasn't even high definition. So I am taking it that processing large MKV files could be nerve-wrecking. Still, it is not the application's fault. Other than that blue tint mishap and the inability to access the video settings, the application did a great job. Even though other application can hardcode subs onto video, this is the easiest I have tried so far.
- Hardcodes subtitles
- I had some problems with the output file
- Couldn't access video settings
