How to convert AVI to MKV?
You can convert AVI to MKV with MConverter in three easy steps:
Choose AVI files from your device
At the top of this page, drag and drop your AVIs. You can also click to select AVI files using your operating system's file picker. Another method is to press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (⌘+V on Mac) to paste an AVI file you have copied to clipboard. Converting a folder with AVI files to MKV is also supported: simply paste or drag and drop it.
Click or tap on MKV from the list of target formats
Alternatively, you can use the search field to quickly find the format you need, whether it's MKV or something else.
Download your MKV files, after MConverter has finished processing them
There's an option to automatically download the converted MKV files, so you don't have to press the download icon for each MKV. You may see a share icon as well. Use it to directly share the MKVs with other apps.
About the formats
Video file formats
AVI is a popular video format, created in the 90’s by Microsoft. It is short for Audio Video Interleave. When compared to other commonly used video formats, such as MOV and MP4, AVI files are usually much larger in size. This is because AVI uses less efficient compression.
To free up space on your device, you can convert AVI videos to more efficient formats like MP4 and WebM.
Video file formats
MKV files are MatrosKa Video files. Like the Russian Matryoshka doll, which contains multiple smaller dolls nested inside each other, the MKV format can contain multiple video, audio, and subtitle tracks inside a single file. This makes it convenient to have one video with a number of audio and subtitle tracks in different languages, all inside a single playable file.
