I'm a Mac user and most software to convert MKV is not compatible. I have several HD movies I downloaded from ZML.com (rip off). Most of the downloads were DivX or DVD and were burned to disc w/o any problem and play fine on my Panasonic DMR-EZ485V.
The few HD downloads I made all came in this MKV format and the tech support at ZML was no help. My G4 1.25 Ghz can't play them and I can't find a way to convert them to use on either my computer or DVD player/Recorder.
I did find a way to use QuickTime to convert one of the MKV files, but it only plays on the computer. Even if it could play on my DVD player I would have a problem getting it on a disc because of its size.
I was hoping this problem could be solved here and maybe even use this thread for MKV issues only. All the other threads I found MKV discussed were not able to address this issue. Thanks.
