Difference Between ISO and MKV
Being an optical image, ISO files are mostly found in discs, and have to be burned into another disc. It is the file format usable with a lot of DVD and CD players, especially the ones connected to the home entertainment system. The MKV format, on the other hand, is mainly obtained from streaming media sources. People who are fond of downloading movies and transferring them into a disc are most likely to use the MKV video file format.
