Hi Marc,

sorry, but you have to understand that we are very busy in further 
improving our format, so we dont have the necessary time to help people 
with this kind of things ( our heart is bleeding when people convert our 
nice files into old MPEG stuff, just because they are all using 
outdated, obsolete hardware players ). The only hint i can give you is 
to use TMPGencoder. It has a module to open files with DirectShow 
filters, so whenever you can play a file in Windows Mediaplayer ( WMP ), 
TMPGencoder can also open the file for encoding into MPEG 1 ( VCD ) or 

Sorry if i cant give you any better advice, but i know for sure Nero 
wont work for what you are trying to do. Dont try to convert the MKV to 
AVI first, there is a very good reason why we are working hard on MKV, 
to be able to replace this old, outdated container ;-) ....
