What is MKV Format?
MKV is the filename extension of the Matroska video format. The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number if video, audio, or subtitle tracks in one file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content. Like movies or TV shows.
A wide range of software has native MKV support, including media players such as Zoom Player, MPlayer, VLC and media centers such Plex, Boxee, PS3 Media Server, and the web browser Google Chrome. But it’s a pity that most of video editors could not recognize MKV directly, such as, iMovie, Final Cut Pro. This brings users lots of problems, especially when having to edit MKV videos for better effects:
