I download movies to my laptop, and when I open the file (movie) I right click on it and it brings up a menu (play, play to VLC, add to VLC, express zip etc....). In SOME of the movies it gives me an option to "play to", and that drops down (when I point at it) "XBOX" ( I connect wirelessly to my xbox). when I goto that it then plays to my big screen tv, and I watch the movie on the tv. BUT SOME movies doesn't give me that option of "play to". Over the last few days I have figured out that if it is a .mkv file or an .flv file is when it doesn't give me that option. I have now a .flv converter that converts .flv files (its called FLV to AVI MPEG WMV 3GP MP4 iPod Converter), but it doesn't recognize .mkv to be able to do this. I have downloaded Freemake, and it DOES do this to .mkv, but it takes HOURS for one movie. I am looking for a converter that will allow me to convert all of my .mkv files faster (if its possible)
I CAN watch .mkv and .flv movies on my computer, but Im looking to switch all my movies to be able to watch them on my tv. It's just a bit move convenient for everyone to watch the tv than the laptop, or burn them.
I noticed a thread about this, but noticed that someone commented/helped with "upgrade your pc or get a bigger dynamo", but I assure you this is not the issue here lol

Thank you both so much for your help!! I have it all figured out now, and all my movies are being converted. I have done 2 so far. One took 45 minutes, and one took 51. *does the happy dance* Thank you Thank you Thank you!! I almost believed there wasn't a solution lol.
