is a simple video converter, which has no tie with any particular browser if you thought the name implies that. Simple is not an understatement, as the app is focused on a single format, MKV.
You may wonder what’s so special about the MKV format that an application was dedicated solely to it. Well, MKV files are renowned for their capability of being not just a basic format, but a multimedia container format. In short, they are more flexible when it comes to creating a single file using different formats, ensuring compatibility.
As there’s no other function to it than converting to MKV, a complex UI wasn’t needed. As a result, when launching, the app will present you with a tiny interface comprised of a message about the drag and drop operation, a loading bar, and a short settings panel with a handful of options.
MetaFox converts only to MKV but has no limitation for the input file format. Drag and drop any formats from AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV, etc, and watch them instantly converted to MKV. Furthermore, you can do this by dropping each file at a time, or to be more efficient, create a folder and convert its contents in a heartbeat.
In case you throw in other non-video formats, an error message will be displayed. However, the conversion won’t be stopped, as the incompatible items will be skipped.
This additional menu contains half a dozen checkboxes with features like splitting DVD episodes, compressing headers, appending files, and more. If you are dealing with MKV files regularly, you should be able to apply those functions successfully.
MetaFox is a lightweight tool that offers its users a quick and unhindered conversion from most standard video formats to MKV. It might be of use to individuals who put together movies or other multimedia projects that incorporate video, audio, and subtitles into a single file.
