Matroska (*.mkv) is an envelope for which there can be many audio, video and subtitles streams, allowing the user to store a complete movie or CD in a single file.,

Advantages agains *.avi:

  • Matroska is Open source
  • Matroska supports Chapter entries
  • Matroska Selectable subtitle streams (even vobsubs, merged in the *.mkv)
  • Matroska Selectable audio streams
  • Matroska Menus (like DVDs have)

mplayer and xine can play *.mkv.

For anyone who wants to implement Matroska in mtd shold take a look here:

This is a litle bash-script witch makes a perfect matroska-file with multiple languages and subtitles. Hope it is an inspiration.

I leave this Ticket closed, because it is still al feature-request.
