Hello there, and good evening to u all. I'm desperately after a 100% and totally user friendly software to convert MKV files to AVI files for my ps3 pls. It must be 100% freeware, really easy to use and not be restricted in ANY way please, many thanks.

There isn't a user friendly way to do this I'm afraid.
It is very involved.
You need to extract the video and audio files separately using a MKV demuxer.
Convert the video to mp4,convert the audio to mp3 then recombine them as an AVI file.
This involves 3 different programs and you can (if you're not careful) end up with huge files.
It can be done (I did one yesterday and it took 6hrs.My computer is no slouch either,i7 920 with SSD hdd) but it's tedious.
The link to AnyVideoConverter that Im a diddy posted doesn't work with MKV files.I've tried it.
