MKV to AVI Converter
The exact way of telling you how to convert MKV to AVI; MKV converter; convert MKV to AVI.You perhaps are very familiar with AVI, but strange to MKV. What is MKV?
MKV - Matroska (common file extensions being .mkv and .mka) is a project to develop an open source multimedia container format. It is named after the Matryoshka doll. The matroska container is a general-use audio and video container, similar to AVI and MOV, providing support for a huge number of different video, audio and subtitles compression formats.
Although it is not primarily meant to be used for media content distribution, it is already widely used for exactly this purpose because of its outstanding support for the various existing subtitle formats, such as SRT, SSA and USF text subtitles, or VobSub streams coming directly from the DVD. Especially the anime world will often prefer the use of matroska compared to known formats like MPEG, WMV and MP4 for this very reason.
With the matroska team currently working on support for a DVD like Menu structure, this trend may even become stronger because this feature will allow users to compress a complete DVD, and with its full functionality, into a single file of much smaller size.
As you know, the abbreviation AVI stands for "Audio Video Interlaced". This video format was created by Microsoft, which was introduced along with Windows 3.1. AVI, the proprietary format of Microsoft's "Video for Windows" application, merely provides a framework for various compression algorithms such as Cinepak, Intel Indeo, Microsoft Video 1, Clear Video or IVI.
AVI is a file format, like MP3 or JPG. But unlike these formats, AVI is a container format, meaning it can contain video audio compressed using many different combinations of codecs. So while MP3 and JPG can only contain a certain kind of compression (MPEG Audio Layer 3 and JPEG), AVI can contain many different kinds of compression (e.g. DivX video + WMA audio or Indeo video + PCM audio), as long as a codec is available for encoding/decoding. That's AVI and MKV's common place.
