Hello cristos:

Anything is possible with mencoder...

See www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix , it's available as a package with ubuntu. This contains a tool to extract mkv to other formats, which is what you're after. Here's an exert from the description of the package:

Matroska is a new multimedia container format, based on EBML (Extensible
Binary Meta Language), which is a kind of binary XML.
These tools allow to manipulate Matroska files.
- mkvmerge is a tool to create Matroska files from other formats
- mkvinfo allows to get information about the tracks in a Matroska file
- mkvextract can extract tracks from Matroska files to other formats
- base64tool can encode and decode base64

There's a GUI available for it too.
