Convert MKV to MOV/QuickTime
MKV to MOV Converter Software converts MKV files to MOV
with H.264 or MPEG-4 video codecs. The MOV is QuickTime File Format (QTFF) used
natively by the QuickTime application. The MOV is very common on Mac OS like WMV
on Windows. It's a great tool for converting format when transferring file to
Mac OS. The MKV to MOV Converter Software also supports other video, audio,
and device formats, for example, 3G2, AMR, WMA, SPX (Speex), FLAC, SWF, VCD, etc.
The software could convert DVD to AVI, H264 to SWF, M4V to iPhone, DVR-MS to MKV, RM to AC3,
and so on.
MKV to MOV Converter Software supports batch conversion and, is compatible
with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000 (both x86 and 64-bit platforms).
What is MKV?
Matroska (MKV) is a multimedia container format used for storing multimedia
content such as movies and TV shows. Matroska aims to become THE standard
of multimedia container formats. It is intended to serve as a universal
format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows.
The aim of developing Matroska was to provide a flexible and cross-platform
alternative to AVI, ASF, MP4, MPG, MOV, and RM. Files are store in .MKV
file extensions. Unlike most video formats, where the SRT subtitle file
exists independent of the video file, this file type often contains a subtitle
track that must be extracted if you want to use the subtitles independently.
The primary goal of the project team that develops and supports the format
is to provide a universal format for multimedia storage based on open standards.
Also, not all media players can play this format, even with the codec pack
installed. 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 founder Steve Lhomme left the project after disagreeing
with the MCF project leader Lasse Karkkainen regarding using the Extensible
Binary Metal Language (EBML) over another format. 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 2010, it was announced that
the WebM audio/video format would be based on a profile of the Matroska
container format together with VP8 video and Vorbis audio. One MKV file
can hold an unlimited number of audio, video, and subtitle tracks.
What is MOV?
MOV is a file extension used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. The format
was created by Apple Computer to work with multimedia files. However, MOV
files can become very large, as they contain video, audio, text, effects
and other information that make the media engaging. Quicktime is a multimedia
development, storage, and playback technology from Apple. Other media programs
and digital devices, including Windows Media Player and many digital cameras,
also use the format to store video files. In order to play any .mov file,
you must have QuickTime installed on your computer. If you are using a
Mac computer, you may already have the application. If you would like to
play the .mov file on your Window Media Player application, you must download
the QuickTime Alternative application. Each track either contains a digitally
encoded media stream (using a specific format) or a data reference to the
media stream located in another file. MOV files are used by Apple Quicktime
player, which is a specific video player for Apple. So, if you have a video
on an IPOD type device that ends in ".mov", or if you have such
a file on your computer, it may not be compatible with other types of players,
especially simpler ones. In order to use a MOV file in a player that needs
a more compatible format such as MPEG, you must do a conversion. The multimedia
container files store audio, video, text and more for specific use with
the Mac operating system. Quicktime files combine sound, text, animation,
and video in a single file. A file that has a .mov extension means that
it is in the QuickTime file format. Though MOV files are quite often found
in the web, to play them on Windows computer one has to install an extra
component or convert to other format.
