  1. Hello, I got some files in MKV HD that I want to resize a little bit. Now I understand resizing the file will mean recode the video and so, there's no way I can resize the video a lil without losing quality, right?

    Or is there?


    Thing is I want to resize SOME big MKVs to a more normal size? Without losing quality? If not is there a way to resize it? I don't mind if it loses a lil bit, I just want it to keep being good quality.

    What exactly do you mean by resize? Normally this refers to changing the resolution of the video, say going from 1080p down to 720p.

    Or do you simply want a smaller file size? Shrinking it from 10gb down to 4gb perhaps?

    Both of these mean re-encoding the video. And both can be done in a program like VidCoder.

    VidCoder will allow you to select an output size. Click on Settings-->Video Tab. Select Constant Framerate. Then change the quality mode to Target Size and set the size you want. You'll get better control on the size of the output if you use a two pass encode.

    Make sure the container is set to mkv if that is the type of file you want.

    Edit: I see I'm a little late for these instructions. Glad you have it working and the results are acceptable to you.

    Using VidCoder, I'm successfully resized (reencode?) a 4.6GB MKV file to a 4.2GB MP4 file so it can fitted into a DVD blank disc.
