good tutorial, bit scary for some... However, to do the same I've been using for some time mkvextract(GUI), Audiocoder and YAMB.

Awesome tutorial. Sure handbrake is easier, but it's Re-encoding the video. This will be way faster overall and no video quality loss.

Just to see, converted a 2 hour mkv file using this process from start to finish, including downloading the tools since i posted my last comment - so, 15 min? a Handbrake encode will lose quality and take much longer.

Holy cow worst tutorial ever. If you call that easier I'd hate too see what you call difficult. You might wanna reword the title to "Easier for experts" cuz no newbie will follow this guide. Too time consuming.

Horrible tutorial. Just use "xmedia recode" to convert anything to h264/acc codecs in .mp4 container (only format supported in iTunes).

*aac plus dont forget to donate to Xmedia Recode developer!

there is no space between 2: and audio2.ac3 mkvextract tracks video.mkv 1:video1.h264 2: audio2.ac3
