How to convert MKV to MP4, MOV, and FLV on Mac?

People nowadays can easily download various sorts of MKV files online free of charge. These MKV files can be in forms of videos, movies, or MV, nevertheless, all of them can not be directly played in many system built-in players, and need to be converted to other formats. This article here aims to introduce you what is MKV, and how to facilitate the MKV to play on Mac or mobile devices.

[b]Part 1: What is MKV?[/b]
Briefly speaking, MKV is one of the file types of a container format called Matroska, which is similar to other containers like ASF, AVI, MP4, and 3GP in conception. Matroska is an open standard free container format, which can hold an unlimited number of subtitle tracks, pictures, audios, or videos within a single file. It contains three file types: MKV for video files (including audios and subtitles); MKS for subtitles (only subtitles); MKA for audio files only. To store HD video files is the most common use of MKV files.
