Convert F4V to MKV online, for free.
Adobe Flash MP4 Multimedia (F4V) is a rather ubiquitous video container format because globally, most viewers of online videos use technology that is designed to play on Adobe Flash Player. In fact, F4V is often referred to as “Flash Video.” An F4V container compresses multimedia files with a codec and facilitates delivery of the files as streaming audio and video over the Internet.
On most platforms, F4V files open in Adobe Flash Player by default. On Microsoft Windows OS, Adobe AIR might be the default player. For guaranteed results on Mac OS X, and Linux/Unix, open F4V files with VLC media player.

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.
