MKV video is a open source, open standard container format. A MKV file can envelope unlimited streams data into a single file. The extension for a Matroska file containing video is MKV, for audio only MKA, and for subtitles only, MKS. The MKV format has many advantages over competing containers like Microsoft Audio Video Interleave (AVI), Apple QuickTime MOV, Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) and others.
1. The first advantage of the MKV format is that it is open source, making the code freely available to developers the all world over, and to the public. Most other container formats contain mostly proprietary code, developed solely by the originating company and licensed parties. Open source programs have an arguably higher potential for more creative solutions and broader implementation.
With installation of free download MKV Codec Pack, you can also play MKV files with Windows Media Player, Windows Media Center, and trace to Windows Media Extenders (like the Xbox 360) and to UPnP devices (like the PlayStation 3). Fortunately, you won't lose any quality when watching MKV files on your PC or through a Windows Media Center extender. >> Best MKV Player
2. MKV is a flexible video format that has quickly become the preferred file extension for high definition video on the Internet. Due to MKV's efficient usage of bandwidth and storage, WebM video also based on MKV structure.

4. An entire CD or DVD can fit inside a single MKV file.
But playing MKV is not as that simply. You may come across situations like MKV files not playing on Windows and Mac, pixelated MKV playback, stuttering or lags, MKV no sound in Windows etc. Thus, to get a smooth MKV playback, you need a MKV converter indeed!
