    > What others codecs do you need inside .MKV besides FFv1 and FLAC ?

    LPCM audio is a must have for archival users. H.264, H.265, and AAC would be useful for general use. The list could go on but that would be a good start.

    With support for for MKV container format should come support for the FFv1 video format and FLAC audio format. This combination is undergoing standardization by the IETF CELLAR working group for use in digital audiovisual preservation. Unlike ProRes and DNxHD, FFv1 is a truly lossless and open format. Due to its flexibility and technically superiority it is used in-house at my production firm as a lossless intermediate and archival format.

    Due to the limitations for Premiere/AME, for now users can losslessly re-mux MKV into the ancient AVI or MOV formats using the free, open-source ffmpeg tool:

    ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0 -c copy output.mov

    Results may vary depending on the input formats and Premiere's support for such formats.
