No I haven't found religion.

An acquaintance has given me a film to watch that is stored on a pen drive (shut up its not porn) but its an MKV file format and my old PC doesn't know what to do with it, what would I use to convert it?

If it isn't porn, why are you bothered?

Yeah I got that and it plays it but I was looking to burn it to disc. Ive come to realise that burning discs is out of fashion now.

This will burn .mkv files to disc

However what TV do you have? Is it smart enabled? Just thinking that you could leave the file on your comp and stream to the TV using a media server like Serviio or Plex.

Got given some movies on a USB, tv has a port but tv doesn't support the file it says (the USB is recognised in my sons new telly by the way) but I want to watch the movies on my TV in the living room.

So long story short I downloaded a free converter online that didn't come with spy/adware and put it on a disc.

I have now been given some more movies on a USB but these are MP4. Need to get a different program to do this.


Anyway that Gravity is a cracking film.
