Ogg Vorbis (OGV) is a free, open-source, unpatented multimedia container format and codec. It is part of the Ogg family of formats and codecs, which the non-profit Xiph.Org Foundation developed to compete with patented codecs. OGV can time-division multiplex (TDM) audio, video, text (subtitles), and metadata. It supports streaming, as well as lossy and lossless compression. However, it does not support menus.
VLC media player is the best choice for opening OGV files. Other good choices are Winamp for on Microsoft Windows OS, and Elmedia on Mac OS X.
It is possible for OGV to play in Windows Media Player and DirectShow-based players, but only with the use of a DirectShow filter. On the other hand, if the player is not based on DirectShow, then the filter is not necessary.

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.
