    What is MKV and how to convert MKV to MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MPG, 3GP
    iPod, Zune, PSP etc?

    Lately, a new format MKV emerged. More and more people start to us
    MKV. However, lots of people don’t know what the MKV is. As seldo
    players can read it, people may face the problem that they can’t use th
    MKV video. This thread here is to remedy that. I will show you what th
    MKV is on earth, and how to convert MKV to other popular video format s
    that your video can be widely used.

    What is MKV?
    MKV, also known as Matroska, is a multimedia container format. It i
    not a video or audio compression format. It is an envelope for whic
    there can be many audio, video and subtitles streams, allowing the use
    to store a complete movie or CD in a single file. Matrosla ha
    incorporates features that you would expect from a modern containe
    format like fast seeking in the file, high error recovery, chapte
    entries, selectable subtitle streams, selectable audio streams
    modularly extendable, streamable over internet (HTTP and RTP audio
    video streams), Menus (like DVD’s have). MKV is similar to AVI – it i
    another container format. But MKV is much newer, and can contain al
    kinds of stuff that doesn’t fit into AVI. It also has numerous feature
    that AVI lacks. There’s also the difference that windows knows how t
    open the AVI “box” by itself, since the format was developed b
    Microsoft in the first place. MKV, however, was not developed b
    Microsoft and windows do not handle MKV by itself.

    How to convert MKV to MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MPG, 3GP, iPod, Zune, PSP
    As seldom players support this format, we’d better convert it t
    popular video format such as mp4, wmv, 3gp or others when we use it. W
