MP4 VS MKV
Difference between MP4 and MKV format
The MPEG-4, a standard developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG); commonly used for sharing video files on the Internet. The MPEG-4 video is compressed with MPEG-4 video encoding. Audio is compressed using AAC compression.
MKV is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file.
- 1. MP4 more compatibility, MKV better quality
- 2. MKV is mostly used to store compressed movie files, when using a good codec (h.264, etc) you get good quality with smaller sizes.
- 3. MP4 is another compression format/container typically used to get movies into a format for portable players (such as ipad/ipod/iphones).
- 4. The good thing of MKV is that everything is seperated so if you add your subs the will not be hard coded (burned in) on the video so you can toggle them on or off
