AVI and MKV are both container formats, but sometimes many users want to convert AVI to MKV mainly due to the following MKV advantages:

  1. MKV is a free open container format which means anyone can use this MKV while AVI is a closed container format.
  2. As a container format, MKV supports to contain almost all video and audio codecs, including 264/AVC, a needed codec for HD video playback, but the same thing does not happen to AVI which has limitation for H.264/AVC support. And so MKV is suitable for HD and Blu-ray while AVI is not.
  3. MKV supports to contain more than one video and audio stream while AVI only supports one single video and one single audio stream.
