The MKV extension, also known as Matroska multimedia container file format, is said to be comprised of videos, subtitles, images and audios in a single file. The format is designed as future proof, and these files do not follow any industry standards. This is the key reason why they are not compatible with playing the same on various portable players and devices.

I was also stuck in the same situation at my workplace. As the format was MKV, so it was not accessible from many devices so was looking for one of the formats that can able to convert the file into the one to be accessible from the majority of devices. And I find MP4 serving my purpose and then the next thing I look for was the video converter. 

To solve my issue, I looked for some of the software to resolve it and make sure that I get an intact quality file. While searching through the internet, I found the Uniconverter and its features to go through. The video converter was one of the best and allowed the conversion of videos into various formats. As it was free, I thought of going ahead with my first file.
