Matroska Video File

File extension .mkv
File category video
Description MKV Matroska is an open-source multimedia container format that supports more than one audio and subtitle tracks in the same file. It is the most convenient file type where you can add a large sum of data, such as videos, audios, texts, and various images. It is a RAW format which you can later flip and separate based on needed data tracks.
Technical details Whether it is video, audio, subtitle, or image, every file will be stored in 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 help the MKV format, such as VLC media player.

CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format

File extension .gif
File category images
Description GIF, Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular bitmap image formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It also supports transparent views of various animations. Such files are used to develop web advertising with sequentially changing pictures and the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 colors of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss because of the compression technique. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. Many applications open the extension to view and process images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
Technical details The format was developed by Compuserve specialists, especially for its use in the web environment, which provided broad public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm to carry out a parallel process with the removal of segments containing insufficient information. This ensures the preservation of high-quality pictures. Thanks to the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, the format handles graphic files with repeating sections well, particularly images with a large number of single-color pixels horizontally. Interlaced data storage is also possible. Scan-line data is compressed to the smallest size. Reducing the number of colors required to create an image is provided by removing shades unnecessary to perform this process. The range of available GIF colors is from 2 (black and white) to 256 while reducing the number of colors leads to a decrease in the file size.
