“H.264 is the new standard for high definition (HD) digital video, and for good reason. A codec based on the H.264 standard compresses a digital video file so that it only uses half the space of MPEG-2 (the DVD standard), to deliver the same quality video. This means you can enjoy stunning HD video the way it was meant to be seen without sacrificing speed or performance.”
“Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), the preferred audio format for high definition videos, is a substantial improvement on the well-known MP3 format and has become the standard for high-quality digital audio.”
“With its unique ability to store multiple formats and media features (subtitles, audio tracks, etc.) in a single container, MKV has quickly gained in popularity â€” becoming the preferred file extension for high definition (HD) video. Millions of online videos use the .mkv file extension, with more coming every day.”
