Thread: How do I covert MKV to AVI ?
If you have a set top box or other way to play HD avi, Quick AVI Creator will keep the same resolution by default. It's a bit quirky, but it can produce good results in one pass using xvid_encraw. The main quirk is it tends to suggest a bit rate that's much too low. For HD avi I would bump it up to at least 3000 kbit.
To get a one pass mode you need to add these lines to xvid.presets file:
( leave a blank line before the [One Pass Mode] line like an .ini file.)
[One Pass Mode]
xvid_encraw.exe -i "$video_input" -pass1 "xvid.stats" -bitrate $video_bitrate -avi "$video_output"
Or you can just use 2 pass. I think you have to start a run and abort it to get the presets file to edit as it's generated by a python script.http://www.FavesSoft.com

I use iwisoft free video converter. It can do it. And it's freeware.
I forgot to mention...convert MKV to 720x480 if NTSC or 720x576 for PAL.
