Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
As we know, the Matroska Multimedia Container is free container format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in concept to other containers like AVI, but is entirely open in specification, with implementations consisting mostly of open source software. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only.
DV is a format for recording and playing back digital video, in its smaller tape form factor MiniDV, has since become a standard for home and semi-professional video production; it is sometimes used for professional purposes as well, such as filmmaking and electronic news gathering (ENG). The DV specification defines both the codec and the tape format.
DV features good video quality, especially compared to earlier consumer analog formats such as Video8, Hi8 and VHS-C. DV now enables filmmakers to produce movies inexpensively, and is strongly associated with independent film and citizen journalism.
If you want to playback MKV files on your Powermac, you will find that MKV videos cannot be seen in imovie or idvd for mac. But don’t worry about that, Mac MKV to DV Converter can offer you to convert MKV to DV easily, and allow you to edit MKV files with its powerful editting function, for example, clipping MKV videos, merging several MKV files, setting size of video frame by cropping.
