Review: Free MKV to MP4 Converter works well -- without quality loss

Make your videos a different format so they work with your player of choice.

Free MKV to MP4 Converter makes quick work of any converting job and keeps all your video's quality to boot. It's a sleek and powerful application and doesn't even saddle your video with a watermark.

Despite the name, Free MKV to MP4 Converter can flip your files to the opposite format, as well. This program installs very quickly, but it sacrifices a stylish layout to keep the program trim and running smoothly. Thankfully, the layout is easy to figure out even though it's a little tough on the eyes. With just a click on the plus icon you can add your MKV file or drag and drop it into the application interface. Adding folders is possible, too. The program lets you choose where you want to save each file as you convert it, so you never have to go looking for it later. It took the program about a minute to convert a one-minute, high-resolution video, which is remarkably fast. It didn't sacrifice any of the video's audio or video quality for the sake of speed, either. However, we would have liked to have a progress bar to track the conversion progress.

Though most people might prefer a universal converter, it's hard to argue with this program's power. Free MKV to MP4 Converter is fast and effective at converting MKV files into a format with greater compression and much more support. It's excellent if you want to watch all your favorite videos on the go on one of your mobile gadgets, without sacrificing the quality.
