Why We Need to Convert MKV to MPEG?

MKV is a widely-used free video container format, which can hold various video, audio, picture, subtitle streams and other data. You can find that many videos, movies and dramas with multiple audio tracks or subtitles are in .mkv format.

However, because of this, MKV playback failures are common since a lot of times your devices may not recognize certain video or audio codec encapsulated in MKV container. For instance, many users told me that they have encountered troubles of playing MKV on LG TV, playing MKV on Apple TV, MKV iPhone playback  and  MKV to iPad conversion. As a result, some people tend to change MKV files to MPEG, which has better compatibility.

Many people misunderstand MPEG and think it is a video format. In fact, MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) is just a working group of authorities to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission. And the MPEG standards consist of different parts. The most common three codecs are listed as follows:

MPEG-1: The first MPEG compression standard, always used on Video CD and low-quality DVD Video.

MPEG-2: The advanced edition of MPEG-1, which is widely used on SVCD and DVD, DVB and ISDB, digital satellite TV services, digital cable television signals, over-the-air ATSC digital television, etc.

MPEG-4 AVC: That is commonly known as H.264.
