Try Avidemux. It's perfect for this stuff, in the menu bar you can select what audio track to copy etc. I use it all the time for exactly this purpose. On my SSD it takes about ten seconds to save a 2GB MKV as an MP4 :p

Try removing the -acodec copy option perhaps? It's always worked fine for me.

I second Ambroos. Try Avidemux it's really easy to use. Open Avidemux. Open the video file. For the audio output and video output chose copy. Select mp4 as the output format. Then save.

check out Handbreak it's the goto app for most people doing video conversions

used freemake for a while, after using handbrake for ages, was good then they started to sneak that adware OpenCandy, and limiting the placement of subtitles unless you donated to the project. went back to handbrake, and never used anything else since. only downside is I cant figure out how to join episodes from one disc into a single file with it. I'd have to use some other software to merge them.


so I just put them all into playlists now which works equally as good if not better :D

mkv/avi to mp4 converter

This one just muxes video (retaining original quality) and re-encodes only audio 2 channels from dts/mp3 to aac. It also has capability to embed subtitles in mp4.

+1 for Handbreak, it's a really good piece of software, even if it looks kinda ###### on Windows ;)

If you are searching the way to convert MKV to MP4 with high quality video and audio and low Mb size if possible, a professional .mkv to .mp4 video converter is needed. The freeware Handbrake and Brorsoft Video Converter are worth a try.

Personally, I use MkvToMp4 and I have no complaints about it (except that it hasn't been updated in a year, but it works fine all the same).

I use MP4toMKV v0.224 to quickly convert MKV to MP4. It keeps the same encoding, but changes the container within a few minutes. (However if MKV has H.264 encoding and your device cannot play H.264 encoded files, then this will simply keep the H.264 encoding and put it in the MP4 container)


To completed re-encode, I use Freemake.
