What is a mkv file?

MKV files are associated with Matroska, an organization dedicated to extensible, open source, open standard Multimedia containers. MKV is the extension for Matroska video files, and may contain several video tracks, as well as multiple audio and subtitle tracks in various formats. For this reason, MKV has become popular in the anime fan-subbing community, where users create subtitles to accompany anime.

In addition to supporting multiple audio and subtitle tracks in the same file, MKV also supports file attachments such as JPEGs, song lyrics and decoder filters.
