    in for this.

    I had 2 9GB MKVS that I couldn't get onto a DL (obviously), have since accidently deleted them but would be good for next time.

    Otherwise the quickest way to reencode them to ~8GB would also be good..

    I know if you just want to burn them to DVD to watch in a DVD player, ConvertXtoDVD will convert them...

    MKV Merge will do it. I used it to go the other way though and put 2 4.5gig files into one 9gig file. But it will go both ways as far as I know. It also allows you to edit out un-needed language and subtitle files which will help you save space too. It will also allow you to re-encode files to different sizes/qualities but it takes a really long time.

    Open up the mkv file and see what the actual video file type is.
    That will make it easier to know what your options are.
