What's an app that will let me burn a .mkv format video to DVD so it can be played back from a DVD player?

I'm using gnome and gnomebaker doesn't have this option.

Thanks.

You can try media-video/devede, I have tried it a few times and every time it has worked flawlessly(although I did use k3b to burn the iso)

Do you mean an DVD Player with "DivX support" or a normal standard DVD Player?
If it can playback DivX, it can playback the most MPEG4 Variants like xvid.
If your mkv is coded in xvid, divx or sth like that and mp3, aac, ac3 or maybe vorbis it might decode it, you just have to pack it into an avi.

For this, get Avidemux and open the file. choose "copy" at the video and audio option and "AVI" in the format Option, now save it.
If you are lucky, your player will play it.
