Xilisoft MKV Converter converts between MKV and other video formats

MKV (Matroska) is increasingly becoming popular as a format to share video in the Internet, due to its advantages in terms of future extensibility, which could, in turn, make it the standard multimedia format. However, it is not fully supported by Microsoft Windows and many media devices at present. To solve this problem, you will need a media converter that supports this media format.
Xilisoft MKV Converter was specifically developed to convert between MKV and other video formats. Its interface is very similar to those of other converters, if you have used this type of application before, you will probably feel at ease with this one; and even if you are a real beginner, it is unlikely that you find any difficulty. It has a neat design, with all the elements appropriately positioned and organized according to their importance.
Since it supports batch conversion, it all begins when you select a list of files to convert. Just remember that it only supports MKV as input format. Then, you can select a conversion profile, which, in terms of the success of the operation, is the most important single step. So, to make this decision more straightforward, this application will show you a dropdown list in which the formats are accompanied by the device supporting it. However, if you are an advanced user and you are willing to get more customized results, you can modify existing profiles or create new ones according to your needs. Finally, you can proceed to convert.
In addition to converting video, Xilisoft MKV Converter is also capable of extracting audio from video and grabbing snapshots from video. However, its editing capabilities are very limited, because you will not be able to trim, cut or merge video clips.
One of the main advantages of this application is derived from its capability to convert various files in a row, specifying different target formats for each of the files to convert. Additionally, it can perform format conversions very fast as it supports using modern processing hardware.
Unluckily, Xilisoft MKV Converter can only convert from Matroska to other formats and does not support other input formats.
