But as far as we know MP4 and MKV (along with AVI, MPG, TS, MOV, etc.) are "containers" -- logical boxes that hold video, audio, and other data. The container does not effect the quality of the contents. Withing the container video and audio can be compressed with any of a large number codecs (COmpression, DECompression methods). It's the quality of the source video/audio and the codecs (and the settings used with those codecs) that determines the quality of the contents.
