Do you want to upload MKV files to YouTube to share with your family members, friends, colleagues, etc.? Receiving an “invalid file format error message when you’re uploading”? For those MKV users who still want to upload MKV videos to YouTube, first you need to convert MKV to one video format supported by YouTube and then upload the converted MKV to YouTube, for which a workable MKV to YouTube converter will be needed by you.
MKV is a container format. The video and audio streams stored in different MKV files may be encoded in different ways.
