MKV to MPA: Extract Audio from MKV(Matroska Video) Video to MPA(MPEG Audio) with River Past Audio Converter, MKV2MPA converter, conversion
Matroska aims to become THE standard
of multimedia container formats. It was derived from a project called MCF, but
differentiates from it significantly because it is based on EBML (Extensible
Binary Meta Language), a binary derivative of XML. EBML enables the Matroska
Development Team to gain significant advantages in terms of future format extensibility,
without breaking file support in old parsers.
It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia
content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska is similar in conception to other
containers like AVI, MP4 or ASF, but is completely open source. Matroska file
types are .MKV for video (and audio) and .MKA for audio-only files.
To convert MKV files to other video formats, please have CCCP
There are three "layers" in the MPEG-1
In MPEG Audio Layer-1, a simple 32-subband audio compressor using a floating
point representation for subband samples. Resolution and scale factor are stored
for groups of 12 subsamples. MP1 is only used for Philips DCC Digital Compact
cassette with data rates of 384 kbps.
Both MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 files use MPEG-1
MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3 becomes
the widely popular MP3.
MPEG.ORG is an excellent source for additional
information on MPEG format and usage.
