What is WMV?
WMV stands for Windows Media Video -- developed and controlled by Microsoft.
WMV is a generic name of Microsoft's video encoding solutions and doesn't
necessarily define the technology what it uses -- since version 7 (WMV7)
Microsoft has used its own flavour of MPEG-4 video encoding technology.
DivX video format is originally based on hacked WMV codec. Microsoft Windows
Media Player 9 was the last version of the Windows Media Player developed
for Mac OS X. However, Mac users can use Flip4Mac WMV (also known as Microsoft
Windows Media Components for QuickTime) to play WMV files. This file is
also found as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number of programs capture
this file extension. Since no known domestic DVD player supports this format,
users of Photo Story 3 wishing to generate material capable of being played
in a DVD player will first have to convert to MPEG-2 before burning a DVD
(average file sizes in MPEG-2 are 5 to 6 times the .wmv file). The latest
versions of WMV (now, summer 2005, the latest one is called WMV10) don't
have much in common with MPEG-4 anymore, but use Microsoft's own video
encoding technologies instead. The technology was considered a stepping
stone to true high definition optical disc formats (HD DVD and Blu-ray
Disc) and Microsoft never intended the discs to be played on anything but
personal computers. Microsoft recommends that ASF files containing non-Windows
Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension. The licensing terms of
DRM protected titles are determined by the content providers and not Microsoft
Corporation. Its main competitors are MPEG-4 AVC, AVS, RealVideo, and MPEG-4
ASP. One of the uses for the codec is computer step-by-step demonstration
videos. The first version of the codec was WMV 7 Screen, The second and
current version, WMV 9 Screen, supports VBR encoding in addition to CBR.
What is MKV?
The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard, free container format,
a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or
subtitle tracks in one file. It is a universal format for storing common
multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. 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 is not a video codec as it is
often thought to be, but a container, or an envelope that can hold many
different codecs at the same time. The Matroska name and logo use do have
some restrictions based on the specific circumstances. This format, with
the file extension of '.mkv', is based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta
Language), which allows changes to be made easily if need be, without breaking
old file supports. This is why it is said that "Matroska is designed
with the future in mind". Matroska aims to become THE standard of
multimedia container formats. Files are store in .MKV file extensions.
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. In addition, since the format does support a
variety of compression formats, it's adaptable for future uses, unlike
AVI formats. 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.
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.
