Feature Description

LEADTOOLS includes everything needed to play, capture, and convert MKV (Matroska Multimedia Container) files by .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ developers. The LEADTOOLS MKV Multiplexer (Mux) and Demultiplexer (Demux) combine and split various audio and video streams into the MKV and WebM formats.

MKV is an open format designed to hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, and subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format to store common multimedia content such as movies and TV shows.

WebM is a new multimedia format sponsored by Google, among other companies, for use with HTML5 video. The WebM format was developed with the goal of creating a completely open and free multimedia streaming format for use over the Internet. WebM is encapsulated as a Matroska file using VP8 for video and Vorbis for audio compression. Both VP8 and Vorbis are based on free and open standards. By using the WebM format, developers eliminate potential third-party patent issues related to some of the other encoding technologies such as H.265, H.264, and MPEG-4.
