I flamed a guy the other day because I was in a bad mood and he hit a nerve when he suggested MKV as a good format. This is a sensitive nerve to me because people keep encoding stuff in these obscure formats which makes it a bitch for me and others to use them on our devices and I don't know what the advantage is. From what I've read, MKV is a container format, and the only advantage it really holds is being able to contain more tracks in a single file than any other container. For the stuff I do, there doesn't need to be more tracks. That and it's open source, which means absolutely nothing unless the alternatives (mp4, avi) are made by opressive companies that lock it down, and they're not. So why do people want to use MKV. I'm in an open minded mood right now, so somebody sell me on MKV. Then when you've done that, I'll start a new thread and you can explain why people insist on using div3, xvid, and ogg when mpeg4, h264, and aac are the same quality, just as easy to use, and play in any player. Seriously, give me good reasons and don't just say it's open source or it's an alternative and alternatives are good, explain the pro's of these things.
