What's MKV files

Recently lots of MKV format videos (Matroska Video) came into vogue. The developer announced that this file format, as an open standard free container format, is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content. MKV is similar in concept to other containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is entirely different with regard to specifications and implementations as these consist mostly of open source software.

Well, leaving the industry factors aside, what the MKV stuff really does give us is tons of trouble. Container format is always a nuisance, especially when it’s a rookie (I would say “newcomer” as rookie is very American) in the multimedia market. It’s never an easy job to find the proper media player for MKV files, and even harder to find a really professional MKV converter. Unfortunately, we have to find such an item, since this annoying video format is becoming more and more popular everyday due to its industry flexibility.
