MKVtools

MoKgVm2DVD is now called MKVtools to better reflect it's improved capabilities. It is an OS X application that I originally developed to provide the tools needed to prepare .ogm and .mkv files for use in DivX enabled DVD players. It's capabilities have now been expanded to include the conversion of .mkv and .ogm videos into .mp4 files with presets for iPod/iPhone. Presets for Apple TV, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 are also included but due to my limited ability to test on these platforms, they should probably be considered beta. MKVtools, as the name sort of implies, is a graphical interface for a variety of tools useful for processing .mkv and .ogm video files.

Excellent for handling MKV files and extracting their content. Sometimes you just need to extract AVI files inside an MKV; no transcoding necessary. This apps does this job (and many others) nicely.

From the homepage: "MoKgVm2DVD is now called MKVtools to better reflect its improved capabilities."

Does an incredible job of converting out of .mkv for a tricky job (ones that vlc has trouble opening), but currently it does not seem to respect the size of the video or its aspect ratio, and in some cases cuts off parts of both the sides and the top, then incorrectly sets the aspect ratio.

Otherwise, it does a great job with audio and it's dead simple.
