The WTV encodes video using MPEG-2 compression and audio using MPEG-1 Layer II or Dolby Digital AC-3 compression; they may also include descriptive metadata and digital rights management (DRM) information. On the other hand, MKV is much more familiar to all. It is a filename extension for the Matroska video format. The Matroska Multimedia Container is an open standard free container format, which can contain an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks in one file.
