MPEG-1 (M1V) is a multimedia format that is published as the ISO/IEC-1172 standard. It is an older format that relies on lossy compression, and it was designed to compress VHS and CD video files. Of all the formats that use lossy compression, M1V is the most widely-compatible with players, software, and hardware.
When opening an M1V file, it is best to use VLC media player. This media player can play across many operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Unix.
If there are problems opening an M1V file, then try the following. Verify the player software is most current version by visiting the player’s web site and searching for MPEG-1 video file updates. On Windows, ensure the correct application associates with the file by following these instructions. If all else fails, make sure the file is not infected with malware by scanning it with VirusTotal.

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.
