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.
GIF Image Format GIF Converter
GIF stands for Graphical Interchange Format. Although traditionally still images, GIFs can also include short bursts of soundless animation. They will open in almost all image programs and on almost all devices. GIFs are raster images made up of pixels and containing up to 256 colours. To make GIFs easier to share, the image or animation is compressed with lossless compression, creating a smaller file size without noticeably affecting image quality. GIFs are often used on websites for animated objects and navigation buttons, and on social media to share video clips and animated images.
GIFs were developed in 1987. They were mostly replaced by JPG and PNG until they were integrated into messaging and social media apps and started being used for memes. Billions of animated GIFs are now sent between users or posted online every day. GIFs are big business and they’re widely used by advertisers and marketeers. Many film and TV companies produce and publish their own GIFs as part of their viral marketing strategies.
