    I have a .mkv file that's around 8GB and I would like to split it into two seperate files so that I can play them on my Apple TV. I usually convert my .mkv files with Visual Hub's default Apple TV settings (.264) and then run the .mov file through QT and export as an MPEG4 using QT's passthrough settings. (Just for the sake of being able to tag in MetaX.) Anyone have any other suggestions as to how I could take a .mkv file this size and make it playable on my AppleTV?

    quicktime pro will do it, you can just trim the vid then export, then do the same for the other half, you can also select passthrough under mp4 export and only have to re-encode the audio to aac, its quite quick. btw quicktime can take a little while to buffer the whole of an mkv file)
