File Extension MKV

Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free Container format. .MKV file format is actually a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. So it is synonymous with a multiple usage. 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 completely open source. This is what makes it different from the other file formats, hence more useful. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (and audio) and .MKA for audio-only files.

The Matroska video format has become popular in the anime fan-subbing community (where users create subtitles) since it supports multiple audio and subtitle tracks in the same container. It is not really intended for media content distribution on a large scale, but is achieving it anyway. This is partly due to its incredible support for several subtitle formats including SRT, SSA and USF text subtitles, or VobSub streams coming directly from the DVD. There is also an expectation of getting work on a DVD-like menu structure for the format.

MKV files can also be played on Palm, Symbian, and Pocket PC mobile devices using the CorePlayer Mobile software.
