2. Split MKV files

Drag your wanted MKV file from the album to the Timeline. And then you have two methods to split the MKV file after you select it:

  • 1. Drag the slider bar and the top of the red Indicator to move the Indicator to the exact place you want and then click the Scissor button. You'll notice the large MKV file is split into two parts. (Please note: you need to choose the video before moving the Indicator by clicking it.)
  • 2. Directly drag one video clip to the exact position where you want to split the MKV file, and then delete the added one (because when you add a video clip overlapping in the other, the later video will be split automatically). Of course, you can use this way to add a different video clip in the MKV file if needed.

3. Export the single MKV clip

Delete other MKV clips and just leave a single MKV clip. After that, click the "Create" button to pop up the Output window, hit the Format tab, and then select MKV to export the single MKV clip in one file.

Open the same project to repeat the delete and export job. In this way, you can make each MKV clip in a simple file.

You advertise this as a software that doesn''t require re-encoding when trimming, but it doesn''t appear you are able to live up to that claim... Or are you? Please demonstrate if that''s possible, otherwise I might as well direct my customers to other software able to do it.
I had been searching for free MKV editing software for sooo long, downloading around 6 different freeware programs, and none of them worked........ until i found Wondershare! Wordershare has worked perfectly for me. I needed to cut and trim an MKV Chinese movie file into different parts so I can listen to each section with headphones on repeat, to help with learning Chinese, and it has done it perfectly. The layout is also very smart and easy to use. Thank you!!!
Hi Sude, the problem never happened before. Could you try again? Please make sure that when you split the video, you have to highlight it first, drag to where you want to split and then click the scissor-like button.
Hi Sude, thanks for your interest in our software.After you purchase and register the program, then create the file again and the watermark will disappear.Please click the following page for purchasing:
And What about the advertisement writing ''wondershare'' on my face. How can I remove it. it disturbs me.
Hi, I can'T split the video two times. I want to take a part from the middle of the video on which I sing my song. But after splitting the part and removing it I can not split again the rest of the video.Sorry for poor English :)
Hi, friend, can you be more specific about your problem? To split a video, you just need find the position you want to split and hit the Scissors image button to divide them into two parts. Please do try it again, thanks. Best regards,
Unusuable. Cannot split an mkv file into two after 10 minutes of clicking. Fancy buttons but no functionality.
Hi, Sauravnaithani, yes, this program can achieve it. After importing all of them into the program window, you just need to drag your video files directly to the video Timeline. They'll be merged seamlessly together. And then you just click "Create" to export a single file. Best regards,
