    For you technology pros out there, whats the easiest way to get a movie (Princess Mononoke) which has dual audio in an MKV format, to a DVD that can be played on home theater? Don't have money to pay for software, so any good freeware? I'm currently contemplating this on Mac OS Lion, but I have Windows 7 as a backup system to work with.

    I have two copies: one is a dual audio (English and Japanese) MKV and the other is an MP4 (Japanese audio with .SRT subtitles). Is there a way to permanently hard burn/encode the subtitle file(.srt or .sub) onto the video file? Help!

    As far as windows software goes, DVD Flick should be able to convert both file types.

    I don't know about hardcoding the subtitles, but it offers a soft option.

    Thank you so much Rydian, but is it just a pass through or is it something I can change when I watch it, with a remote? At this point, I just want subtitles :D

    It takes the subtitles and adds them into the DVD like a normal movie, so yeah you can toggle them (opposed to hard subs, which are permanently added into the video file).

    Most DVD players does not support MKV video formats, in order to play MKV in DVD players, we had better convert MKV to DVD player more supported format like MP4, DivX, MPEG-2 etc.

    You may try iDealshare VideoGo to convert MKV to DVD more supported video as well as burn MKV to DVD for playing MKV on DVD player successfully.

    It can easily help to:

    Convert 720p MKV to DVD format to burn 720p MKV to DVD
    Convert MKV files in other resolution to DVD to burn MKV to DVD for play MKV on DVD player
    Convert and burn MKV to DVD for successfully playing MKV files on any kind of DVD player
    Convert and burn other video files including AVI, WMV, MP4, MPG, FLV, AVCHD, MOV, 3GP, WTV, MXF, and etc to DVD

    I find a powerful MKV to DVD player - Avdshare Video Converter to help you convert MKV in 1080p, 720p or other resolution or convert H.264 MKV, MPEG-4 MKV, H.265 MKV, AVC MKV, VP8 MKV etc.
