But actually, most websites choose MKV as the movie format for downloading. Do you know the reason? As Internet is open to the whole word, movies on the websites are also open to customers from different countries or areas. To meet the different demands, such websites have to package different video and audio tracks together, including the languages, subtitles and so on. And that's just MKV's superiority. It could contain over 16 streams when other formats can only contain singe or several streams, which made it more and more popular for us to play MKV on iPad or HD TV, etc.
