How is it not? All the HD movies have .mkv format? Or at least 99% of them? All those Blu ray 1080p/720p movies.Originally Posted by sugarhell
Mkv is not a format for HD. Mkv can have mp4,subtitles,different audios etc etc.
So Mkv can contain a mp4, a flac , a subtitle file ? So it depends on what the codec is? Speaking of codecs, is there any lossless video codec, which is the best quality video codec? Like .flac for music (lossless)?Originally Posted by RevZ
the Matroska video container (MKV) files are not per definition better or worse than *insert random true video extension here* since you don't know what type of video is in it just by looking at the fact that it's an MKV.
Just think of MKV files as being a collection of files, for example let's say an MP4 video file, OGG audio and subtitle file, all integrated into that one MKV file.
Many people who need/want lossless videos tend to use HuffYUV, Lagarith (what I personally use), or lossless H264. However, unless you are doing video editing with multiple terabytes of storage space at your disposal and like to be paranoid about the effects of generation degradation (me being one of those individualsOriginally Posted by LuciferRising

When I want to create a video (lets say with Sony Vegas Pro), a simple video in fact, how do I make it h.264? Okay, maybe I didnt make that clear enough. Lets say I want to make a simple video: A .flac song with 10 pictures, and that will be the whole video, that song which will play 4 or so minutes and during that time 10 pictures are switching and thats the whole video. How do I make this video h.264? I mean, do I make it .mkv first and set the resolution (1920x1080) or what?Originally Posted by D-Dave

However, unless you are doing video editing with multiple terabytes of storage space at your disposal and like to be paranoid about the effects of generation degradation (me being one of those individuals), sticking with H.264/x264 is a better option. Off the top of my head, lossless files tend to have a bitrate (1080p at 60fps) of ~350 Mbps (a lot better than the 2+ Gbps from uncompressed AVIs I use to work with). If you are simply converting videos for convenient watching, using H.264 (I recommend x264) is a much more ideal approach to storing videos.
Hahahah, no of course. I just gave an example, and wanted you to clear that up for me, because I dont know how Im supposed to do those simple things, let alone editing and converting videos with those codecs and stuff.Originally Posted by ramicio
So you basically want to create one of these [ANNOYING] videos people upload to YouTube that is just a song playing with some pictures? If so, you've lost my interest in this topic.
such as mkv to mp4 converter it is good at keep the audio track.Originally Posted by bastik;67818
Change the splitter for MKV and MP4.
Preferences (F2) > Filter-Control > Splitter
choose Gabset for both.
or install Haali's Media Splitter and let it split MKV and MP4
F2 > Filter-Control > Source-Filter > [The Rest]
Use SuperSpeedMode (Alt+F)
