Convert DVD to MKV
DVD to MKV Converter Software converts DVD files to MKV. The converter
supports popular codecs for MKV file such as H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, AAC, AC-3, MP2,
MP3, and Vorbis. The software could calculate bit rate for video according to
video size automatically.
The converter supports common media formats such as 3G2, SWF, iPhone, AMR, H.264, PPM image sequence, OGM, etc. It
could convert M4V to M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), XVID to BMP image sequence, WMV to 3G2, MOV to FLAC, MPEG to VCD, and so on. In other words, the software is an ideal format
Converter Software for common uses.
DVD to MKV Converter Software supports batch conversion and, is full compatible
with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is DVD?
DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc. A DVD holds a minimum of 4.7GB
of data, enough for a full-length movie. DVDs are commonly used as a medium
for digital representation of movies and other multimedia presentations
that combine sound with graphics. To record moving pictures, DVD-Video
uses either MPEG-2 compression at up to 9.8 Mbit/s (9,800 kbit/s) or MPEG-1
compression at up to 1.856 Mbit/s (1,856 kbit/s). The commercial DVD player
specification dictates that a player must only play discs that contain
its region code. Discs using the DVD-Video specification require a DVD
drive and a MPEG-2 decoder (e.g., a DVD player, or a computer DVD drive
with a software DVD player). DVD-Video discs respectively refer to properly
formatted and structured video content. It uses MPEG-2 for video compression,
with AC-3, DTS or MPEG audio for multi-channel audio support. Its main
uses are video and data storage. Most DVDs are of the same dimensions as
compact discs (CDs) but store more than six times as much data. VOB files
are a very strict subset of the MPEG program stream standard. Subtitles
are usually intended as a visual help for the deaf and hearing impaired
and for translating dialogs. DTS audio is optional for all players, as
DTS was not part of the initial draft standard and was added later; thus,
many early players are unable to play DTS audio tracks. Professionally
encoded videos average a bitrate of 4-5 Mbit/s with a maximum of 7-8 Mbit/s
in high-action scenes. This is typically done to allow greater compatibility
amongst players, and to help prevent buffer underruns in the case of dirty
or scratched discs. DVD-Video discs have a raw bitrate of 11.08 Mbit/s,
with a 1.0 Mbit/s overhead, leaving a payload bitrate of 10.08 Mbit/s.
Of this, up to 3.36 Mbit/s can be used for subtitles and a maximum of 9.80
Mbit/s can be split amongst audio and video.
What is MKV?
Matroska video files have the ".mkv" file extension, causing
them to sometimes be referred to as MKV files. Its main features include
fast seeking, high error recovery, modularly extendable, selectable subtitle
and audio streams, chapter entries, menus, and streamable over the internet.
An example of a Matroska file is a complete video file that includes a
video stream and an audio stream, as well as subtitles and a menu system.
Matroska aims to become THE standard of multimedia
container formats. EBML enables the Matroska Development Team to gain significant
advantages in terms of future format extensibility, without breaking file
support in old parsers. The Matroska name and logo use do have some restrictions
based on the specific circumstances. It was derived from a project called
MCF, but differentiates from it significantly because it is based on EBML
(Extensible Binary Meta Language), a binary derivative of XML. Matroska
file extensions are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MK3D for
stereoscopic video, .MKA for audio-only files, and .MKS for subtitles only.
The name "Matroska" is derived from the Russian word Matryoshka,
which means nesting doll (the common Russian cylindrical-shaped doll within
a doll, also known as a babushka doll). 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 (Matroska) is an open
source format based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language), and includes
a greater number of features than supported by other container formats
used in industry.
