Until now I had never needed to convert MKV files to MP4. If I could not reproduce an MKV I was looking for alternatives and that’s it. That until now …
3 days ago skipped the news on Torrenfreak.net. The scene of the groups (ETTV) that are dedicated to ripping the majority of series of television that circulates by the network has announced a new standard of edition: From now, all the video files must go in format Matroska (aka MKV).
In the eyes of the average consumer this may seem irrelevant, but changing the standard from MP4 to MKV can be a problem since not all devices and TVs reproduce correctly the MKV format (some do not even recognize it). If you dedicate to download series by torrent or Mega little by little you will realize that it is increasingly difficult to find videos in MP4 …
One of the solutions proposed by ETTV to overcome this bache is that the user himself converts from one format to another if he wishes.
Convert MKV files to MP4 with rebox.NET without losing quality
One of the fastest programs to convert MKV files to MP4 is rebox.NET (you can download it by clicking HERE). It’s only function is to swallow files in MKV format and convert them into beautiful and readable MP4 at lightning speed. It does the conversion of MKV to MP4 without losing quality in any moment, since the only thing that this program does is to change the container of the file keeping intact the content of the same one.
Download and install rebox.NET on your computer.
Run the application. The first thing you have to do is select the MKV file you want to convert to MP4 by clicking on the “+” icon.
Once selected, you should only give the “Play” button that is right next to the conversion. As mentioned the conversion of MKV to MP4 is done without losing any audio or video quality at any time. If the file also contains subtitles, it will also preserve them.
Once the file is selected the program gives you the option to choose where you want the saved video to be stored. It also offers the possibility to choose the audio quality.
As an example, I can tell you that a video of about 25 minutes makes it into MP4 in a minute and a half or so. The MKV format, being no more than a mere container of audio/video/subtitles, does not require processing all the information of the video file data per data, so the conversion is done in a very agile way.
If anyone asks me which is the best method to convert MKV files to MP4 without losing quality and with subtitles, rebox.NET seems to me the best option.
Convert MKV files to MP4 online
If you prefer not to install any application and want to convert an MKV file to MP4 online and free, with a simple Google search you will see that there are several web pages that perform the conversion online and without costs. However, not all web sites are the same:
OnlineConvert.com: From this website you can convert MKV files to MP4 online, either by adding the file, attaching a link if the video is on the network or you can even select the video from Dropbox or Google Drive. The only (and great) glue is that it only allows you to convert files with a weight less than 100 MB. From there the tool is no longer free and you have to pay about $ 10 and register.
Convertfiles.com: In this web, you can also convert MKV to MP4 online and without losing quality, but just like the previous web has a size limit. In this case, the limit is 250 MB, so if your file is less than that size you have a free path to convert the file totally free.
Then there are other websites like freencoding.com, which do not limit the size of the file, but in order to do the conversion, you have to leave your email. I have done a test, I have left the mail to send me the converted file but I have not learned more and I have not sent the file or anything.
