What is MKV?
MKV is a flexible, open standard video file format that has quickly become
the preferred file extension for high definition video on the Internet.
Also, not all media players can play this format, even with the codec pack
installed. In addition to that, there are also free parsing and playback
libraries available under the BSD license, for commercial software and
Hardware adoption. All Matroska file types (to include MKV) are open and
free to use without license fee. MKV files came from the Multimedia Container
Format (MCF) project. Matroska is an open standards project. This means
for personal use it is absolutely free to use and that the technical specifications
describing the bitstream are open to everybody, even to companies that
would like to support it in their products. This is a play on the container
(media within a form of media/doll within a doll) aspect of the matryoshka
as it is a container for visual and audio data. MKV files contain video
and audio streams (may also contain subtitles). The streams are likely
compressed and have been produced with an encoder. In order to play these
streams a codec is required. This format is currently not supported by
all operating systems or multimedia software and requires the latest codec
packs installed in order to view the files. The Matroska name and logo
use do have some restrictions based on the specific circumstances. The
following media players have been tested and proved by Matroska to support
MKV files: ALShow, Avidemux, BS Player, Chameleo, The Core Media Player,
Core Player Mobile, The Core Pocket Media Player, foobar2000, GOM Player,
Gstreamer-based Players, Handbrake, jetAudio, Kaffeine, The KMPlayer, Media
Player Classic, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema, MediaPortal, Mezzmo
Media Player, MPlayer, MythTV, Perian Quicktime Plugin for Mac OS X, Target
Longlife Media Player, Totem Movie Player, VirtualDubMod, VLC media player,
VSO, Vuze Media Player, Windows Media Player 11, xine, Zoom Player, plexapp,
What is Android?
Android is a Linux-based mobile phone operating system developed by Google.
Android is unique because Google is actively developing the platform but
giving it away for free to hardware manufacturers and phone carriers who
want to use Android on their devices. The OS is based on the Linux kernel
and is written with middleware, libraries and APIs in C language, and includes
Java-compatible libraries as well. Like the other very popular OS on the
market, Apple's iOS, Android has a large database of third-party applications
developed by independent programmers or companies, most of them written
in Java. The Open Handset Alliance develops the changes to the Linux kernel,
in public, with source code publicly available at all times. The rest of
Android is developed in private by Google, with source code released publicly
when a new version is released. Some commentators have noted that manufacturers
have a financial incentive not to update their devices, as lack of updates
for existing devices fuels the purchase of newer ones. Further delays can
be introduced by wireless carriers who, after receiving updates from manufacturers,
customize and brand Android to their needs and conduct extensive testing
on their networks before sending the update out to users. Preinstalled
on hundreds of millions of Android devices around the world, Google Play
can be a growth engine for your business. Google publishes most of the
code (including network and telephony stacks) under the Apache License
version 2.0, and the rest, Linux kernel changes, under the GNU General
Public License version 2. Unlike the iPhone, developers who create applications
for Android devices have much more flexibility. An Android application
can all be built to have full access to a device's capabilities; as an
example, there are a number of apps in the Android Market which completely
change the look and feel of the home screen, something that is not possible
on the iPhone. Some current popular Android apps include Shazam, Facebook,
Twitter, eBay, Skype, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Paper Toss and Doodle Jump.
