Unfortunately, not practical -- it's a 2.3 GB mkv.

I'm following the best instructions I've managed to find so far:

  Burn an mkv with mkvtoolnix, ffmpeg, dvdauthor and K3B

If there's a better/simpler procedure for 'direct' handling of the mkv,
I'd love to learn about it as well, and test to see if it eliminates
this problem.
