    How to play MKV?

    What is MKV?

    Imagine when your computer plays a movie, or video, it at least performs two tasks at the same time: playing a video sequence, and playing a sound track. Two tasks are a minimum, but often subtitles go to the video sequence. However, for video, we usually have only one file of a certain format. This format is called the Container.

    MKV (Matreska) is a container format. It became popular thanks to its open code and great functionality.

    How to play MKV file?

    If you do not play the mkv file, it is possible that you do not have enough video codec that uses this format. In this case, I can advise you to put a package of codecs K-lite codec pack.

    There are many programs in which support for the Mkv container is already sewn, for example:

    • Media player classic
    • Light alloy
    • The kmplayer
    • Winamp
    • BS.Player

    If you slow down the video, it is quite possible that your computer does not have enough power to play MKV. In this case, you can use a video converter and translate from MKV format, for example, to AVI, but naturally with a loss of quality.
