Matroska is just a container. You can hand whatever is in there to your friends in another container but they still need to be able to play the stream. Assume you have multiplexed mpeg4 into it (not AVC) you can use mkvextract to retrieve the streams and then multiplex them using, for example, yamb. You then have an mp4 file. You can play this with Quicktime (if you are lucky). Youc an multiplex it into AVI and then play it with DivX (if you are lucky).
If you have a VC1 stream you could multiplex it into wmv but whatever you create - you need the decoder for the codec installed on the target system. The easiest way to do so is to install ffdshow. If you do this you might as well install the CCP.
Bottom line - there is no foolproof way to do it this way.
Any Directshow capable application should be able to transcode the mkv file into MPEG2/DVD format. Is this what you want? If you already have MPEG2 in the Matroska container would cause needless loss in quality which you could avoid if you choose a different method.
Please be more specific and I can tell you what to do.

greetings. the vibe that i get from reading the forums is that you are trying to point out that no one would want to convert a .mkv to a DVD because a .mkv has better quality. i agree. i have no interest in "changing" a .mkv into a dvd. i'd like to be able to exchange my .mkv file without other people not all of whom are computer savy. what i would like to do however is be able to put my .mkv file onto a disc and have it play in a dvd play. is this possible? thank you for your time and invention.
