How to Reduce MKV Size without Any Quality Loss

by Christine Smith • Nov 12,2019 • Proven solutions

MKV, short for Matroska Video, is commonly used to distribute subtitled anime clips. It packs multiple types of files into one file. For example, it may contain subtitles files, audio tracks and multiple video tracks all contained within one file. That means your MKV file is always very large. To reduce the size of MKV, Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) can help you. It can easily reduce the size of MKVby reducing resolution, video and audio bit rate or converter MKV to other formats as you like.
