(Matroska Multimedia Container) MKV is an open standard free file container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. The most common use of .MKV files are used to store HD video files. It usually carries H.264 video, one or more AC3/AAC/DTS audio tracks and sometimes one or more subtitle tracks (sometimes coupled with one or more embedded TrueType or OpenType font).

Think of the MKV file container as a DVD in one file!
