Matroska (MKV) is designed with the future in mind. It incorporates features you would expect from a modern container format, like:

Fast seeking in the file
Chapter entries
Full metadata (tags) support
Selectable subtitle/audio/video streams
Modularly Expendable
Error resilience (can recover playback even when the stream is damaged)
Streamable over the internet and local networks (HTTP, CIFS, FTP, etc)
Menus (like DVDs have)

MKV is an open standard project. This means for personal use it is absolutely free to use and that the technical specifications describing the bitstream are open to everybody, even to companies that would like to support it in their products. The source code of the libraries developed by the Matroska Development Team is licensed under GNU L-GPL. In addition to that, there are also free parsing and playback libraries available under the BSD license, for commercial software and hardware adoption. MKV video is not playable on many devices like iPhone and Xbox, so professional MKV Player is a must-have to enjoy MKV video files.

MKV - Matroska is an English word derived from the Russian word matryoshka, which means nesting doll (the common Russian cylindrical-shaped doll within a doll, also known as a babushka doll). This is a play on the container (media within a form of media/doll within a doll) aspect of the matryoshka as it is a container for visual and audio data. The loose transliteration may be confusing for Russian speakers, as the Russian word matroska actually refers to a sailor suit.

Goals of Matroska, aka MKV:

1. Create and document a modern, flexible and cross-platform Audio/Video container format, in combination with an open codec API to form a free and open media framework.
2. Establish MKV as the opensource alternative to containers, like AVI, ASF, MOV, MP4, MPEG.
3. Develop a set of tools for the creation, editing and implementation of Matroska files.
4. Develop libraries and tools for software developers to be able to support Matroska in their applications.
5. Prepare hardware support of Matroska files in next generations standalone units, in close cooperation with device manufacturers.
6. Support adoption and implementation of Matroska's in open architectures like FFmpeg, VLC or GStreamer Launch a set of DirectShow filters for playback and creation of MKV files on Windows Operating Systems.
