Advanced Systems Format (ASF) is a proprietary Microsoft product, which serves as a container for Windows multimedia content. Microsoft designed it for streaming and to be independent of systems and protocols. It supports chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, streaming, and hardware players, but does not support menus.
It is best to use Windows Media Player to open an ASF file. Alternatively, VLC media player is a good choice too. Keep in mind that ASF can contain WMA and WMV files, which might display as the file extension of the ASF file.

Matroska (MKV) is a free, open-source, container standard that can hold an unlimited amount of audiovisual and multimedia files in a single file format. Since it is open source, a user can customize it with open-source software. The name derives from “Matryoshka” dolls, which is a famous type of Russian handicraft that consists of a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size nested one inside another.
The best way to open an MKV file is to use VLC media player. This media player is compatible with all operating systems and platforms. This is important because MKV is not an industry standard, which means that other media players might not support it.
Additionally, MKV does not use codecs to compress file size, which means the file can be quite large. Therefore, another option for opening an MKV file is to download the appropriate codecs that are compatible with the selected media player. To accomplish this, download the Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) from a trusted site, such as Ninite.
