Install MKVtoolnix. It's a set of free tools for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

  • On Windows, download the latest version from here. Just run the installer.
  • On Linux, you can find the package mkvtoolnix in your repository, or alternatively download them from the homepage.
  • On OS X, the easiest way would be to install mkvtoolnix through Homebrew.

After installing, you just need to run:

mkvmerge --no-subtitles input.mkv -o output.mkv

As easy as that. For Windows, there's also a GUI, which allows you to remux streams as you like — even if you don't like to use the command line.
