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
The GIF gets its name from the fact it is an image file saved in the Graphical Interchange Format. The GIF has been around for 30 years and its history is legendary - it has gone from the brink of obsolescence to widespread use thanks largely to the advent of social media and Internet meme culture. The original intended use of the format was quite different to its use today. Created in 1987 by CompuServe and developer Steve Wilhite it was designed to save precious memory whilst providing a convenient container to display images. In the early '90s GIF's were replace by the new JPG and PNG formats, which offered sharper image resolution and more efficient image encoding. However in recent years the GIF has enjoyed something of a renaissance as it offered a widely supported and easy to use method for creating short animated clip (or "memes"). Websites such as Giphy and Tenor built on the back of this trend, and Twitter and Facebook also offered native support for the format.
