A .mkv file is a Matroska video/audio multimedia file. it is a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file. The purpose of the mkv file is to specifically hold videos with subtitles and audio. The mkv file compresses large amounts of data in the form of movies and other media therefore it is able to hold many files at once.

Features of MKV file:

2.MKV widely supports multimedia formats. Matroska Video is a container like MOV and AVI, providing support for a huge number of different video, audio and subtitles formats. MKV files became widespread simply because of its incredible support for some existing subtitles formats.
