First of all I hope this in the right section as it possibly qualifies for a couple.

I have an external hard drive I've had to format to Fat32 so it is recognized by my BluRay player. This therefore presents the problem of not playing files bigger than 4gb.

Can anyone recommend any programs to split my MKVs into two smaller files to circumvent this problem?

AFAIK, there isn't a 'straight forward' way to split mkv's (somebody may correct me on this) :) The following thread over at 'VideoHelp.com' may assist: link.

If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Thanks for the link, I've tried MKVMerge but the files won't play on my BluRay they just make it crash.

Thats probably more to do with my BluRay player than the program so might have to do some more BluRay player specific googling.

It says HERE that Boilsoft Video Splitter can split MKV files.

However, I have not used the program personally, so I can not vouch that it is true.

iWiSoft Free Video Converter has an editing feature that lets you trim videos including MKV.
I just can't tell if there's any degradation in quality though.

A Blu-ray player that won't recognize NTFS seems a little weird when it's expected that high-definition videos will definitely be more than 4GB in file size.

In all fairness it does recognize MKVs except when I've converted them myself.

The two examples I can think of are one WMV I converted with Freemake (into an MKV) and an MKV I split with MKVMergeGUI.
