Matrosla has incorporates features that you would expect from a modern container format like fast seeking in the file, high error recovery, chapter entries, selectable subtitle streams, selectable audio streams, modularly extendable, streamable over internet (HTTP and RTP audio & video streams), Menus (like DVD's have).
