MKV files are Matroska Video files used for playing video. It is an implementation of Matroska, which is an open standard free container format used to store multimedia content. The .MKV file is designed to store video with subtitles and audio. It supports several types of video and audio codecs and may include SRT, USF, and SSA subtitles. The video container format is similar to the AVI and MOV formats.
