MKV Video Format MKV Converter
MKV is an audio-visual file format, and the name MKV stands for Matroska Video File. Matryoshkas are Russian dolls, and, like several other video formats, MKVs are container files that can have audio, video, subtitles and metadata ‘nesting’ within them. While it’s not necessarily an industry standard like MP4, MKV is an open-source format that doesn’t belong to one single tech company.
MKV files are not compressed, so they can be much larger files than some other video formats like MP4, although the quality can be higher. Users can also ‘mix and match’ the audio and video elements in the file, or have multiple audio tracks (e.g. for different languages). These features make MKV popular with some filmmakers and editors. Not all media players support MKV. However, MKV videos will usually play on Windows 10, and with VLC and MPlayer, and you can install MKV codecs for other players.
AVI Video Format AVI Converter
AVI is a common type of video file, which Microsoft developed for Windows and launched in 1992. AVI is short for Audio Video Interleave, and like many other video formats, AVI files are container files that include both video and audio in different codecs. AVI files are compressed but to a lesser extent than some other video formats; this means they tend to have higher quality video but may also have a larger file size.
Although MP4 is probably the most common video format and an ISO standard, AVI files are also widely supported and can be played by numerous media players, including Windows Media Player, QuickTime, VLC and MPlayer. If you are having problems playing an AVI file, you may need to convert it to another format like MP4 first, or you may be able to play it by first installing an additional codec for your media player. AVI is one of the formats that can be used to upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo, and social media sites like TikTok, Instagram and Facebook also support AVI videos.
