(Disk in the drive image by Sergey Galushko from

Burning video files to DVD is useful so you can play them on your television or cinema screen. Formats such as AVI are heavily documented, but the Matroska (MKV) video container is less common, although less restricted in its capabilities. There are programs you can use to burn the MKV to DVD, but if you want to burn the DVD with subtitles you will need to extract the subtitles from the MKV file. Extracting the subtitles can be achieved with only program, MKVExtract.
