MKV is also named as Matroska Multimedia Container which is a file format that contains a number of videos, audio or subtitle tracks in one file. MKV files are often saved in large scale. Besides, due to its super video quality, it is welcomed by more and more users. But the sad news is that many video players do not support MKV files and it is not convenient to share MKV files with others.
