Convert MKV to MP4

There are many digital video formats available for video storage. Each of the different video formats have individual use and benefits. For example, MKV can support a 1080p movie with chapter support, 2-channel stereo audio, 5.1 audio, 7.1 audio and advanced subtitles support. MP4 has similar video capabilities, but limited support of certain audio formats and no subtitles. At the same time MP4 is mobile device friendly and could be easily reproduced on most mobile devices.

Several video conversion software packages are available on the market that can convert MKV to MP4. For the purpose of this article, we will use Wondershare UniConverter demo software.
