Download Best MKV Encoder to Convert Video to MKV [High Quality & Small Size]

Download WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe and use it to encode whatever video/resolution to MKV, be it MP4, MOV, M4V, AVI, FLV, WMV, SWF, AVCHD, MPEG, VOB, MTS, H264, H265 with up to 270+ input formats supported. The quality loss from conversion is marginal with this software. Thanks to De-interlacing and High Quality Engine, you can get resulting MKV file with 98% quality kept if the input codec is changed. To crown it all, this MKV encoder even empowers you to get 1:1 lossless MKV file once you enable its "Auto Copy" mode.

Worry about file size due to the high quality? You don't have to. This tool will auto remove the redundancy from input video, including spatial redundancy, temporal redundancy, visual redundancy and coding redundancy. Better still, it upholds HEVC codec to compress video to smaller size with higher compression efficiency than other codecs (like H264) while keeping the same high level of quality. Ultimately, your input file can be reduced with 50-70% size off.
