Convert M4B to MKV online, for free.
MPEG-4 Audio Layer (M4B) is the file format that stores audiobooks and podcasts, primarily those that are available on iTunes. The cool thing about this file format is that, unlike MPEG-Audio Layer III (MP3), M4B can store digital bookmarks. This feature allows readers to pause and resume later, just like a physical bookmark in a printed book!

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.
