Is a project with unlimited possibilities, the basic idea of which is the creation of an open source media container that works across formats. MKV format involves multiple selectable subtitles, video and audio tracks. Besides, MKV provides an online broadcast, instant rewind of the file and the partition of files into heads.
This format was originally created as an alternative to mp3. The idea was to achieve a small file size with better sound quality. The first versions weren’t quite successful, but with the development of AAC, it became possible to store sound with less loss of quality, and with the same file sizes as that of mp3.
