MPEG-2 to MKV: Convert Video from MPEG-2(MPEG-2 Video) to MKV(Matroska Video) with River Past Video Cleaner, MPEG-22MKV converter, conversion
A variant of the MPEG video and audio compression algorithm and file format,
optimised for broadcast quality video. MPEG-2
was designed to transmit images using progressive coding at 4 Mbps or higher
for use in broadcast digital TV and DVD.
An MPEG-2 player can handle MPEG-1 data as well. MPEG-2 has been approved as
International Standard IS-13818.
MPEG.ORG is an excellent source for additional
information on MPEG format and usage.
To convert MPEG-2 video to other formats with River Past software, please
have GPL MPEG-2
Matroska aims to become THE standard
of multimedia container formats. It was derived from a project called MCF, but
differentiates from it significantly because it is based on EBML (Extensible
Binary Meta Language), a binary derivative of XML. EBML enables the Matroska
Development Team to gain significant advantages in terms of future format extensibility,
without breaking file support in old parsers.
It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia
content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in conception to other
containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is completely open source. Matroska file
types are .MKV for video (and audio) and .MKA for audio-only files.
To encode MKV video, please have CCCP

Select output format
Use the setting panel on the bottom of the window to control the output format. Click on the toggle to the left of the "Output Format" label to expand the panel. Select "MKV - Matroska Video" as the "File Type".
If you don't see the MKV output option, you have a problem with your Matroska Pack installation.
We need Matroska Pack 1.1.2 or later to encode MKV video. Matroska 1.1.2 is included in CCCP. Please download and install CCCP.
Note: To convert to MKV files, you must have Matroska Pack installed.
Change Video Settings
Click on the toggle to the left of the "Video Settings" label to expand the panel.
Select "Specify" under "Size" and/or "Frame rate" to enter the video resolution and/or frame rate.
You can change the compressor, quality, size, and frame rate of the video.
Change Audio Settings
Click on the toggle to the left of the "Audio Settings" label to expand the panel.
Select the audio compressor for the conversion. Depending on the compressor, you may also change the sample rate, channel (stereo or mono), bits/sample, and bitrate.
Do not use "MPEG Layer-3" as the audio compressor. It does not work correctly in video files and often causes the conversion to abort in the middle. If you prefer to have MP3 audio in the AVI file, download lame_enc.dll instead.
Select output directory
Expand the "Output Directory" panel. Use the "Browse" button to select an output directory.
Click the "Convert" button on the tool bar.
