RealMedia Variable Bitrate (RMVB) is an extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format. It uses variable bitrate (VBR) compression, which means that it adjusts bandwidth depending how difficult or easy it is to compress a segment of the multimedia content, such as high-action versus low-action scenes.
RealPlayer supports playback of RMVB files in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Since RealNetworks developed RMVB, RealPlayer is the default platform for this file type. It is available as a free download and is easy to use. It supports captions, subtitles, and streaming.
Other software that can open RMVB files include VLC media player and ALLPlayer, which are both free. Keep in mind that RMVB is proprietary and relatively uncommon; used mostly for playing files locally instead of streaming over the Internet.

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.
