mkv support every know format*

the could be a case when you want to store the:
* video in FFV1 (lossless) or AV1 (lossy) or Mjpeg (i-frame)
* audio in opus (lossy) or flac (lossless)

this link talk more about using proress with ffmpeg:

you can disregard everything else I said if you want to
* except really old formats like realaudio/video
