If any vidders out there have any advice for the following situation, you would have my undying gratitude.

So I have a Blu-Ray MKV file of a movie with an English subtitles track, and mpeg streamclip being the wonderful application that it is, there's no way to disable the subtitles prior to clipping that I'm aware of--please correct me if I'm wrong. (I'm running Mac OS 10.8 with the new beta version of mpeg streamclip that can handle mkvs, although not well.) I downloaded mkvtools and tried to extract the video track only, which seemed like it would work…except that mkvtools only extracts/converts to h264 streams, which are completely useless for any human purpose as far as I can tell.

Is there a way to make mkvtools actually convert to a different file format? Is there something I can download to convert the h264 file to something (anything) that mpeg streamclip can handle? Is there a way to disable the subtitles on mpeg streamclip? (Note: they're not hard-coded in, as I can disable them when I play the file in VLC.) Is there a Santa Claus?
