How to Split Large MKV Files by File Count, Length or Size Windows Mac?

Split multiple MKV files

Hi! Does anyone know how to split multiple MKV files? I tried mkvmergegui 8.1, but it merges my files into one big mkv file. I’ve also searched for the solution on google, without any success. I wouldn’t split them one by one (I’m talking about 50 files), only if there is no other method to do this. Also, the splitting would be at the exact same timecode in each file.

Best Tool to Split MKV files with no quality loss

Splitting a large video into several clips is very useful for uploading, transferring or easy distribution. Many people tend to do this but lack of proper video splitter software. Some programs claims to do it for you, but you are forced to re-encoding the files with quality loss. Other programs only allow you to split MKV files one by one, it would be very time consuming.
