Download and install this smart MKV video splitter. After running it, you can choose 16:9 or 4:3 ratio option to enter into the main interface of this MKV file splitter.

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 "Export" button to pop up the Output window, hit the Format tab, and then select MKV to export the single MKV clip in one file. By default, Filmora will export the video in Better Quality, but you can change the video encder, resolution, frame rate and bit rate if necessary. It is recommended to export the video with the same or similar settings as the original video.

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