So in this article, I will show your how to convert and play MKV files at will. Then no matter how many MKV movies you have downloaded, there is a way to watch them on a device you like.




1. MKV v.s. MP4

MKV v.s. MP4 is a hot topic when people want to convert DVD to digital formats or rip Blu-ray to digital files. Then which format should be selected when you rip DVD and Blu-ray files? Here, let me give you a comprehensive comparison of MKV v.s. MP4 from the following aspects.


MKV vs MP4


(1) Format: Both MKV and MP4 are a container format instead of a media format. They are used to integrate videos, audios, pictures and subtitle tracks into one single file. But with the same use, MKV supports more files formats than MP4. Almost all formats of videos, audios, pictures and subtitle tracks can be merged to one single MKV file. While for MP4, it only supports specific formats like H.264 and MPEG-4. This is the biggest difference of MKV v.s. MP4.

(2) Compatibility: Since MKV supports content in any encoding such as H.264 and H.265, not all devices have a decorder for it. So you have to find a special MKV player Mac/Windows to play MKV movies. While MP4 is available in almost all media players and mobile devices like iPad, iPhone, Android.

(3) Size: MKV is usually bigger than MP4, so there is low bandwidth consumption for MP4.

(4) Quality: The highest resolution for MP4 is 1440x1080/30p (16:9). MKV has a higher quality than MP4. if you want to watch HD videos on your laptop, choose MKV as the output format for your file. That's why people are willing to convert Blu-ray to MKV.

(5) Recoverability: MP4 is hard to recover once there is something wrong to your computer, while MKV files are easily recoverable after crash.

(6) Purpose:The generation of MKV is to take the place of AVI, while the coming of MP4 is the upgradation of MPG.


While watching a movie, we have a high demand for video quality. And it will be a plus if we can choose our favorite languages. So from this point, MKV is the best format you need to convert DVD and Blu-ray to.


2. How to Convert DVD to MKV?

Now, let’s learn how to convert DVD to MKV. During this conversion, you need to prepare two things: a DVD to MKV ripper, and an external DVD driver if there isn’t an internal one in your computer. If possible, you can buy an external Blu-ray driver for both DVD and Blu-ray file reading, as a DVD driver can only read DVD videos. Basically, it is the same to rip DVD to MKV and Blu ray to MKV.
