Matroska Video File

File extension .mkv
File category video
Description MKV file format is the most convenient type of file format where you can add a large sum of data, such as videos, audios, texts, and various images as well. It is basically a RAW format which you can later flip and separate on the basis of needed data tracks.
Technical details Every file whether it is video, audio, subtitle or image it will be stored into a separate data line. It is a lot similar to the MP4 or AVI format although when users are packaging an MKV file they rarely bundle all the tracks within the file. Various media players don't even support the MKV video format therefore, the users need to use specialized media players who can support the MKV format such as VLC media player.

It allows the simultaneous playback by storing video and audio into a single file, the simple architecture of .avi format allows it to run on various operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix and it is also supported by various web players as well.
Technical details AVI format uses the support of Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF) where the whole data is stored into chunks and each chunk gets recognized by a FourCC tag. Out of these individual chunks, the first one can be recognized by the hdrl tag and it can decode the chunk containing metadata for the video and the second chunk gets recognized by the movi tag and it contains the actual audio and visual data which makes up the AVI movie. It uses less compression rather than the MOV and MPEG file formats.
