What is a .MKV file?

mkv file icon

The Matroska multimedia container format is an open source format similar to the AVI, ASF, and MOV multimedia formats. Multimedia files that store one or more video tracks (and possibly audio and subtitle data) in the Matroska multimedia container format are known as Matroska Video (.MKV) files. These files are typically used to store short video clips, TV shows, and movies.

You may encounter MKV files in a variety of ways since they are used by a large number of video programs to save video. You may download video from the Internet stored in an MKV file or export home video from a video editor as an MKV file. You may also receive video from co-workers, family members, or friends. File Viewer Plus enables you to play your MKV files and even convert the video to the MP4 format at different resolutions and bitrates.
