3. In global page specify "Enable splitting" ...after timecodes.
4. At least in version 2.1.0 you can use this simple time format: HH:MM:SS, HH:MM:SS (I was surprised that it did not demand nanoseconds this time. I don't know if time and list separators are taken from Windows regional settings, most likely not.)
5. Specify an output filename in the bottom, preferably on a different physical disk.
6. Press "Start muxing" and after this process has finished you should have one or more new files. (several, only if splitting is used)

File will be split at keyframes (I-frames), so you may not get the exact timecodes. MkvMerge is the defacto standard for creation of Matroska files, so you shouldn't worry that some formats might not be supported.
