What is FLV?
FLV (Flash Video) is a proprietary file format used to deliver video over
the Internet using Adobe Flash Player (formerly known as Macromedia Flash
Player) version 6, 7, 8, or 9. FLV, also known as Flash video, is the standard
for many news and video-sharing websites thanks to its small file sizes
and versatility. One way to feed data to Flash Media Server is from files
in the FLV file format. Audio in Flash Video files is usually encoded as
MP3. However, audio in Flash Video FLV files recorded from the user's microphone
use the proprietary Nellymoser Asao Codec. (Flash Player 10 released in
2008 also supports the open source Speex codec.) The new file formats are
completely different from the older FLV file format. Flash Player 8 and
newer revisions also support the playback of On2 TrueMotion VP6 video bit
streams (FourCC VP6F or FLV4). For example, F4V does not support Screen
video, Sorenson Spark, VP6 video compression formats and ADPCM, Nellymoser
audio compression formats. FLV was originally developed by Macromedia.
The Flash Video FLV file format supports two versions of a so called 'screenshare'
(Screen video) codec which is an encoding format designed for screencasts.
Both these formats are bitmap tile based, can be lossy by reducing color
depths and are compressed using zlib. The second version is only playable
in Flash Player 8 and newer. Both formats are supported in Adobe Flash
Player and currently developed by Adobe Systems. Support for encoding Flash
Video files is provided by an encoding tool included with Adobe's Flash
Professional and Creative Suite products, On2's Flix encoding tools, Sorenson
Squeeze, FFmpeg and other third party tools.
What is MKV?
Video container format similar to the .AVI, .ASF, and .MOV formats; supports
several types of audio and video codecs; may also include .SRT, .SSA, or
USF (Universal Subtitle Format) subtitles and supports VobSub subtitles
from DVDs. As the name implies (the Russian egg-shaped dolls contained
within one another) Matroska can contain video (DivX, Xvid, RV9, etc),
sound (MP3, MP2, Ogg, AC3, AAC, DTS, PCM), as well as subtitles (SRT, ASS,
SSA, USF, etc) in the same file. Matroska aims to become THE standard of
multimedia container formats. Files are store in .MKV file extensions.
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. A complete CD or movie
with subtitles can be stored within a single file. With this capability,
it can provide support for a variety of audio and video compression formats.
The aim of developing Matroska was to provide a flexible and cross-platform
alternative to AVI, ASF, MP4, MPG, MOV, and RM. Also, not all media players
can play this format, even with the codec pack installed. All Matroska
file types (to include MKV) are open and free to use without license fee.
The Matroska developers are also continually working along with hardware
producers to include MKV support in multimedia software typically included
with new computers and support in a variety of operating systems. In addition
to that, there are also free parsing and playback libraries available under
the BSD license, for commercial software and Hardware adoption. 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.
