while the Matroska is a bit more efficient than others, the size reduction
you can expect from simply remuxing it will be marginal. You have the option
of recompressing the video with a codec with better efficiency such as h.264
in your case. You should be able to achieve roughly a quarter of the size of
the original file (depending on your exact settings during recompression)
with minimal loss in quality. The output of that compression would be a good
candidate for the Matroska container (instead of MP4).
