pls. dont spread this link around , Mosu already had 1000+ downloads ;) 
.... be nice with his bandwidth !!

To make your own matroska files :

Windows : Getting VirtualdubMod from 
http://sf.net/projects/virtualdubmod you can simply open any AVI file, 
set 'video' to 'Direct Stream Copy' and 'save as ...' select MKV and you 
will get your own MKV files. You can also mux Ogg Vorbis audio to it, 
delete the original MP3 in the AVI on transmuxing, or add the original 
AC3 audio to it, all in the 'stream' directory . There are also win32 
binaries of mkvmerger now, available from the same link below.

Linux : http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/ .. download 
'mkvtoolnix' and compile it on your box. 'mkvmerger' will allow you to 
transmux any AVI or OGM to MKV, as well as adding some additional audio 
or subtitles streams to it ...



Next to come :

DTS audio muxing ( done, but not released )
AAC audio muxing (working, but subject to change )
MPEG1/2 video muxing ( started )
Image subs ( BMP, PNG )
mode2 form2 burning, including flexible EDC/ECC
MPC audio ( musepack ... waiting for Frank Klemm to make SV8 )
etc. ....

Have fun !!!
