Overview
An unlimited amount of data such as an infinite number of audios, videos, pictures, arbitrary files like XML and subtitle tracks can be stored in MKV files. Although, it has a similar concept that of AVI, MP4; etc., yet, there is one difference. It is an open-source software or has open specifications, whereas, others are different. Furthermore, it allows online streaming and fast seeking which are alluring features. It can be used with ease as it is highly adaptive and can accept any audio and video.
Technical description
Files in MKV format store each track in varied dataline. Files in this format use distinctive extensions for storing the data. The extension .MKV is used only for video files(may have subtitles and audio),.MK3D for stereoscopic video, .MKA and .MKS for audio and subtitles respectively. The codecs that are linked to this format are .SRT, Vobsub, .USF(Universal Subtitle Format) and .SSA; etc. It should be noted that not all the media players support this file format but only selective ones like VLC. Besides this, ‘Matroska' is derived from a Russian word that is ‘Matryoshka’ and it refers to a hollow Russian doll which opens to uncover another doll, this doll then again opens to reveal next doll and the process goes on. Other meanings for this word in Russia are a sailor suit and a female sailor. Technical details in depth are available only for private and commercial use.

Overview
It is a format for audio files which compresses the audios using lossy compression. It neglects the redundant information which can not be processed by the human ear. Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has standardized this format. It has superseded the Vorgis and Speex. It offers low latency i.e. there is a less delay in the signal when it enters the system and when it emerges out, this results in real-time interactive communication like video conferencing. Due to its good audio quality, it is widely used by in various listening tests.
Technical description
OPUS has good compatibility with low-end embedded processors as it is less complex. Ranging from 6kbps to 510kbps, it can support both variable and constant bitrate coding. Also, the frame size from 2.5ms to 60ms is supported by this codec. It works smoothly and maintains stability (by avoiding the distortion) while mixing of packets from distinct streams. Speech, Hybrid and pure-CELT are the three different methods used for encoding the audios of varied frequencies. For compressing the Speech up to 8kHz, SILk is used which is an audio compression developed by Skype Limited. The next mode, Hybrid uses CELT to compress the audio files above 8kHz frequency or for wider bandwidth and frame sizes 10ms and 20ms are supported by this mode. CELT(Constrained Energy Lapped Transform) is an open and free audio compression format which is especially used in communication that requires low latency. For general audio, the last mode pure-CELT is used. CELT is used for frame sizes which are less than 10ms.
