Convert MKV to AVI on linux

 

I recently wanted to convert some of my 720p and 1080p Matroska Video (MKV) files to the Xvid format so that I can play them on my PS3. The video quality and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio would remain intact, and was pleased to get the job done with mencoder.

In the following example, I decided to use a single pass, fixed quantizer value of 4. The audio will simply be copied.

mencoder movie.mkv -channels 6 -ovc xvid -xvidencopts fixed_quant=4 -vf harddup -oac copy -o movie.avi
