After you have installed required apps
This box will appear
It will start converting speed depends on the processor speed and ram installed.
I have used a standard size 700mb here.
The size you pick in dropdown depends on the size of the original .avi in
general you can compress the size by 50% without loss of quality so this is
350mb, 1400mb would compress to 700mbs, 350mb ie one hour TV series will
compress to 175mb.
Hope you try this and please enjoy!!
What is .mkv
An MKV (Matroska Video) file is not your regular video and audio compression
format. An MKV file is an open source container format. It is a general-purpose
audio and video container and a competing format to the more popular AVI and
MP4 formats. With its futuristic design approach, it can provide support for a
vast number of audio, video and subtitle compression formats. Its features
exceed even those of AVI and MP4 files.
An MKV file contains compressed video and audio streams along with an encoder.
A codec or Coder/Decoder is required to play this type of file. MKV aims to be
the leading standard for multimedia container formats. It is based on EBML
(Extensible Binary Meta Language), a subclass of XML.
Specifically, MKV is a Matroska file - an open source container that houses an
unlimited amount of video, audio, and even subtitles data in a single file. Its
primary purpose is to create a unifying or universal format for multimedia
storage with the benefit of being completely open source.
MKV File Features
Like any other modern-day multimedia container, MKV files possess the following
* DVD-like menu systems
* HTTP and RTP audio & video streaming capability over the internet
* Tools and libraries for developers adding MKV support to their applications
* Cross-platform audio/video multimedia container format
* Comprehensive support by new Samsung and LG TV and Blu-ray players
* Direct television USB playback support – MKVs can be directly played from USB
when plugged into the television USB port
* Reliable error restoration mechanism
Licensing of MKV File
