What is MKV

Lately, more and more groups, even in the fansub scene, are starting to use MKV, a multimedia container format also known as Matroska. 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.
