What is an MKV (Matroska) 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.

 

How to open an MKV file?

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.

What is a WAV (Waveform Audio) file?

Waveform Audio (WAV) is the most-popular digital-audio format for uncompressed audio files. WAV is the result of IBM and Windows iterating a Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF). WAV files are much larger than M4A and MP3 files, making them less practical for consumer use on portable players. Their quality, however, does surpass that of M4A and MP3.

 

How to open a WAV file?

The default player for opening WAV files is Windows Media Player. Alternatively, programs such as iTunes, VLC media player, and QuickTime can also be used to open and play WAV files.

 

Due to a WAV file’s higher, uncompressed quality, they are suitable for importing into music editing, production, and manipulation programs. UltraMixer is a cross-operating-system, software program for deejaying on which WAV files work well. Elmedia Player also supports WAV files.
