I would like to convert my .AVI files to .MKV format with minimal quality loss. How can I do this?
Just the contrast operation like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwM4SG0qVpQ
Try handbrake from http://handbrake.fr . I was impressed with the output quality.
Try Freemake Video Converter
I use Freemake Video Converter. It works quite well for me.
In order to convert any type of file in your computer, the simplest way is download software called Format Factory from here - http://www.formatoz.com/download.html or you can convert online here - http://www.convertfiles.com/convert/video/MKV-to-AVI.html
check the media info of your file ,note the bit rate ,frame rates, and other details then use a video converter of your choice (any will do) while converting be sure to match the frame rates ,bitrates and other details with the original file ... but remember avi will take a lot of space ,just play with the advance settings to get the best results

The best way to keep the video and audio quality, is muxing the video..
How to do this: Use Megui! One of the best software out there that uses different scripting... Although it may be a little difficult for beginners, try to experiment.. (I have about 1 year that I work with muxing and I can't call myself a professional, yet..)
You can find it here:
Also search @Youtube for different video tutorials!
Great for both normal video encoding & animation video...
One of the best media converters, and it's free!
using a good converter such as total video converter and changing settings for mkv to match settings for your avi file will give you a same quality result......
try the software format factory to do the coversion
AVI and MKV files are multimedia CONTAINER files. As long as the converter you use keeps all settings for the output file the same as the input file, there should be no loss of quality. This should give the effect of just shifting the container file itself while not messing with the codecs or their settings.
