MKV is a common video file
defined by Matroska Media (a new multimedia package format).
MKV is different from both DivX, XviD or other videos
encoding formats and MP3, Ogg or other audios which only
provides these audios and videos with “cover portfolio” and
“package format”. The biggest feature of MKV is that it
could hold many types of encoded video, audio and subtitles
flow, and even very closed streaming media like QuickTime
and RealMedia. Actually, AVl, VOB, MPEG, RM also belong to a
container format as MKV does, but their shortages of old
structure or being not open enough leads to MKV's (the new
multi-media packing format) birth.
