Windows 7: Is it possible to get movie 700MB in mkv format?

If you use Metafox (download it from my tools page), it will extract the audio/video streams from almost any container (avi, m2ts, flv etc) and place those contents into a MKV.

To use it, just install it. It places a shortcut on your desktop. Drag and Drop any file to the shortcut, it automatically makes the MKV in the originating folder.

EDIT: you will need my Win7codecs installed for formats like FLV to extract properly.

is there a reason you want an mkv?

not really I was just wondering if its possible to have quality of 700MB DVD movie in avi format saved in mkv without losing quality
Yes.
Just use MKVmuxer to remux the video and Audio stream into a MKV container.

But why?

Depending on the length of the movie, 700MB is very small, and likely of poor quality in the first place.

A MKV container will not help what so ever here.
As mentioned its just a container. AVI, MKV, MP4 etc are all containers.
Much like a envelope. It just holds the video and audio.


MKV is good for certain file types, or even multiple files types in one conatiner.
For Example x264 Video and Dolby Digtial Audio.
And at 700MB, I seriously doubt its using DD or DTS.


Theres nothing to be gained ny swapping the container to MKV (in terms of quality)

As long as you don't have to re-code, the pure "wrapping" into a container doesn't affect the quality.
Rule of thumb: if the process is done within 5 or ten minutes, you'e safe

I had this idea to fit as many as possible on 2GB flash drive. My cousin who lives in Poland asked if i knew any good movies I recommended few gave Him links to download but his internet speed is terrible so I had this 2GB flash drive I don't use anymore decided to convert the movies to mkv and fit as many as possible. i already converted Brooklyn's Finest to mkv it has 546MB

Well, actually... In certain cases I found out that muxing with mkvmerge video+audio+subtitles results in a very slight pixelated effect because of the softsusbs, which is totally weird because that effect is gone if I exclude the subs xD
Though I think it only happens in MPC-HC

Please tell me that we're not actually trying to help you manipulate illegally downloaded videos/movies from the internet because, you know, that's against the law and stuff, not to mention against this forum's rules.
