The Matroska file format is a media file container that is used for video and audio playback on your personal computer. Abbreviated as .MKV, the Matroska format is similar to popular media files such as .WMV, .MOV, .MP4 and MPEG. One of the main advantages of the Matroska format is its ability to store multiple audio tracks and subtitles in one file. This meshes especially well with Internet distribution of DVD and Blu-ray content by packaging deleted scenes and other extras into one file.
