Method 2. Burning MKV to DVD Player with five steps.
Besides converting MKV to another format for playing on DVD player, you can burn MKV to DVD and then insert the DVD disc to your DVD player for playback.
Below are the steps:
1. Power on your computer and launch the CD/DVD burning software. You need to have the MKV video on a disk for the CD/DVD player to read it.
2. Decide on if you want to burn CD/DVD. This may all depend on the size of the MKV video file. If the MKV video is larger than 700 megabytes you need to go with a DVD (700 megabytes is as much as a CD can hold).
3. Select either video CD/DVD on the menu of the burning software. Click and drag the MKV video into the main viewing screen of the software, title the disk and click "Burn." The burning process will begin. Depending on the size of the video file, the burning process may take a few minutes.
4. Remove the CD/DVD from the computer once it has finished burning. Power the DVD player on and insert the disk into the drive. Turn on the TV and switch it to the video setting for the DVD player.
5.Wait for the MKV video to load up on the television screen. Press the "Play" button on the DVD player to begin the playback.
Note: The MKV format is readily acceptable on most video programs you use on your computer and it is even possible to play the video on a DVD player. The only requirement is that the MKV be on either a video CD or DVD. If the MKV is not on either a video CD or DVD, even if you have successfully burn MP4 to DVD without converting, you will still encounter issues in playing MKV on DVD player: Regular standalone DVD players can only read movie DVD's (those are in MPEG-2, and if you view them in Windows Explorer, you see a folder structure with VIDEO_TS, and files like .VOB .IFO and .BUP). Newer DVD players that are DivX-certified can (in addition to the above) read data DVD's with an AVI file encoded in the DivX codec. Most of the time, you will fail to play MKV on DVD player unless the DVD players have the "Nero Digital" label on them.
