    How can I convert a mkv movie to DVD?

    I used to be able to do it in Compressor. It took ages for it to accept a mkv file that I had dragged into it, but after a VERY long while the spinning beach ball would stop and it would appear in the window so I could apply whatever DVD settings I wanted.

    However that seems to have stopped working. But if you have an older version of Compressor or haven't upgraded your system in a while you might try it.

    Otherwise, if you have the late lamented Visualhub (or are able to find a working version) you can convert the mkv directly to a DVD.

    Or you can use Handbrake to convert the mkv using the best quality settings possible and then use Compressor (if you have it) to make a DVD

    Those are all things I've done so I know they work.

    I haven't done this but it seems to work - if you have Toast, drag the mkv into the Video tab with DVD-Video chosen.

    MPEG Streamclip > CMD+E > export it using the Apple Intermediate Codec for VIDEO (Compressor) and Uncompressed for AUDIO (Sound).
    Then use iDVD, comes with iLife and make a video DVD.

    What if the OP has no access to FCS?

    I have Toast Titanium 11, and while it DOES get the job done, it makes the video look pretty muddy and in general terrible.

    I settled down on this MKV to DVD converter.
