Yes, you will have to convert the MKV into MPEG2 for DVD/S-VCD, MPEG1 
for VCD creation or into a MPEG4ASP AVI, depending on what your 
standalone player will support. Only few players will support MPEG4, 
most of them are showing the label 'DivX certified' . If your player 
doesn't have this, read here : 
http://www.matroska.org/technical/guides/dvd/index.html , create a VCD 
(supported in almost any standalone unit) or better a DVD (if you have a 
DVD burner) and report back if the method has worked for you or not.
