Knowledge sharing: What's MKV?
MKV is a container format developed by Matroska. It can hold different types of video and audio codecs. For example, there might be MPEG-4, H.264, XVID, DIVX codecs. MKV can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows.
Matroska is similar in conception to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles.
