Some online video converters, such as Convertio, can also convert WMV to MKV. These converters are, however, subject to various restrictions. And one big inconvenience is that it takes a much longer time to process the conversion (considering the time to upload, convert, and download), especially when you don’t have stable and strong internet. Many of these sites also have limits on the size and length of the video to be uploaded. If you have used several of the online products, you are probably aware that these sites are usually filled with ads, too. So we won’t talk about online converters here. Nevertheless, if you are only to convert one or two small WMV files, going for online converters is also a good option.
