Default [EventScripter] Add ability to change container of .mp4 to .mkv (Matroska)

Mkvtoolnix has an option to repackage the video into Matroska without needing to transcode the video. It's free and open source and the libraries can be reused in different projects. Such as for example Jdownloader. Maybe as an add-on?

I would like an option to automatically do that for specific containers, meaning as soon as the download ends, it would automatically repackage.mp4 to .mkv

some plugins have options to download other containers/codecs if they are available (re: youtbes)
else if they are not provided, you can use event scripter and create a post download task which calls 3rd party solutions like ffmpeg or other programs via there respective cli to do this task for you. I believe there might be something existing in eventscript thread.

you can already do this using Ffmpeg (or any other cms tool) and EventScripter scripts.
