Default trying to encode mkv files to zune/ipod mp4

I have several mkv files i would like to convert on to my zune (mp4) and I cannot find an encoder that will work outside of Any Video Converter, even then I cannot turn off the subtitles (which look hideous, if they used a different font maybe it would be acceptable, and I could use the Japanese audio track with them) and just use the engligh audio.

I have tried Handbrake, it just crashes, video fab (not free) crashes but will convert my non-mkv files no problem (and keeps the audio in synch). videora seems to crash but that is the actual Zune version (haven't tried the ipod one)... ******** isnt free & it keeps crashing when I abort the encode because it isn't doing anything, so it isnt good for me...

Please do not suggest SUPER:

all I get are files that are out of synch. It used to be such a great program up until a couple of years ago when it started doing this with my files. I have even tried different computers, it's the program not the computer's hardware.

anyone got any ideas for a program that works?

Try the program I linked to in this thread, see if it works for you. Also, a free iPod video converter, which you can locate w/a search on download.com, will work fine as well.

Free Zune Video Converter, or if you want multiple passes, try ffmpeg (what free zune video converter is based on)

tried both ways, the finished file was unplayable most of the time, when it did work it was massively out of synch....
