Hey, I've got this ripped blu-ray on my computer and it's an MKV file. What I'd like is to ask someone who's had a lot of experience with video editing about the best editor for MKV in terms of keeping the original quality of the file and things like that. I'd just like one that's really nice and also works with MKV really well.

Most DVD and Blu-ray DVD movies contain multiple audio and subtitle tracks, each for one language, so that people all over the world can pick their favorite language and watch the same DVD. To store these movies on computer disc for easily copy and transfer over network, people will rip the movie from DVD disc and store it as a video file. MKV is the best choice to store ripped DVD movies, because it supports unlimited audio and subtitle tracks.

However, MKV is not a popular video format for most video player and editing software. If you want to edit MKV file in Windows Movie Maker, Apple Final Cut, or Adobe Premiere, you should convert it into some popular video format, like MP4. Or you can edit it in some video editor that support MKV format, like Faasoft MKV Editor.
