Xilisoft MKV Converter re-encodes all your Matroska video files into codecs that your consoles and portable devices can decode and play, such as AVI, MP4, WMV, H.264, or MOV. Alternatively, you can also use this video conversion tool to extract the audio stream of any MKV file, and to take high-quality JPG, PNG, GIF, and BMP snapshots of any video frame.

This versatile and flexible tool allows you to batch-convert any number of MKV files into as many supported output formats as needed. You can assign different output profiles to each of the video files on the conversion list, and make the program perform all required re-encodings in a single conversion process. Selecting the output profile that fits your needs is simple and straightforward, as all profiles are neatly classified by device. All you have to do is pick up the player you want to upload it to, and your preferred video codec among the ones supported by that particular device. In some cases, you will find that the device of your choice may even support High-Definition video formats, such as H.264 HD. The variety of output video codecs supported guarantees that nearly all of the most popular mobile devices and consoles are represented here, such as the Apple’s iPod, iPad, and iPhone family of products, various Samsung Galaxy and LG Optimus models, HTC smartphones, various Sony Xperia and Motorola phones, PSP, PS3, and Xbox 360 consoles, etc.

The program comes with a convenient built-in video player. Though small and not offering the best playback quality, it will allow you both to watch any of the input videos on the conversion list and to have a preview of what the resulting output video files will look like.

Finally, it is worth reminding that this MKV conversion tool also supports some well-known audio codecs as output, such as MP3, WAV, WMA, or M4A, which will allow you to enjoy the soundtrack of your favorite videos on your portable audio player or mobile phone.
