MPEG-1 Audio Layer 1 (MP1) is an earlier, simpler version of the MPEG audio standard. MP1 is mostly obsolete, but still supported. MP1 was part of the Digital Compact Cassette format. Almost all files that were MP1 were replaced by the newer MPEG-1 Audio Layer II (MP2) and MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) file formats.
Due to MP1 being largely obsolete, VLC media player is the best option for opening an MP1 file, with the bonus that this player works across platforms.
Initial Release: 1993
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.
