Editors' Review

Free MKV Player gives you the ability to play video files in MKV format without the need to convert them and with access to convenient playback controls. The specialized nature of this program means you can see these files in their original quality, and all features are clearly available through the program's straightforward interface.

Pros

Straightforward interface: Users of all experience levels will have no trouble accessing all features of this program. The interface layout is very clear, and controls for playback, volume, adding files, and working with playlists all pop right up when you hover your cursor over the lower part of the main viewing window.

Quality playback: Because this app is specially designed to play MKV files, it offers the highest possible playback quality. And because you can play files through this program without converting them first, you don't have to worry about quality loss during conversion.

Cons

No help or advanced features: There is no Help file to go with this program, and there are no extra features that you can use to enhance your viewing experience. Playback controls are limited to Forward, Back, Play, and Pause, and if you run into trouble, you have no official place to turn to for information or guidance.

Bottom Line

Free MKV Player does what it's designed to do, and if that's something you need, it's a good option to try. The clear interface ensures that even the least experienced users will have no trouble playing files through the program, and the ability to skip the conversion step before you start to play your files is quite convenient.

"An App That Helps Me Play MKV Videos On My Computer"

April 15, 2015  |  By CarmenMendelson

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

Since MKV is a rare video file type, I used to find it difficult to play the videos. Now that I have downloaded the Free MKV Player, I am able to play the videos on my computer. The installation process quite easy and quick. The app does a quality job.

Cons

I have made the right choice. No negative aspects on it.

"installs spyware (can you give negative stars??)"

March 15, 2015  |  By ceetown22

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

might play a video for you

Cons

installs spyware, browser highjacker, search highjacker, unnecessary processes (after declining all of the BS they try to sneak in... embedded spyware)

Summary

I took 20-30 minutes uninstalling crap and trying to fix my machine after installing this.

I thought CNET was respected???? I remember when it actually was download.com years ago and you could trust the site... not any more.

"FULL OF CRAPWARE"

March 01, 2015  |  By fatboyardee

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

NONE - AVOID. KILL IT WITH FIRE. EAT A BAG OF SOMETHING REALLY NASTY.

Cons

Undoubtedly the WORST garbage I have ever downloaded from a once-upon-a-time "respected", "legitimate" site. Oh CNET, how far you have fallen.

Summary

Filled with crapware and browser hijackware. Killed my system almost to the point of having to rebuild, and I am *very* fastidious when it comes to saying "no, thanks" to all the browser come-ons and add-ons when a piece of freeware loads.

"works but has adware"

November 01, 2014  |  By oggybleacher

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.1

Pros

mkv player works. has subtitles.

Cons

I can't seem to maximize screen.
several adware must be declined upon initial install. a search engine called "framed ads" usurped my browser anyway. never saw an option to decline that one so it's embedded. I was able to delete the program.

Summary

software works but adware is embedded.

"Difficult install with lots of adware"

October 23, 2014  |  By neal.berkowitz.3

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.1

Pros

none that I can see yet.

Cons

Well, besides AVG reporting that there is malware associated with this file, there are a lot of hoops you have to go through to not infect your machine with bloatware, adware, and general garbage. You have to decline many items, carefully read others to avoid getting junk, and uncheck lots of check boxes. In short, you should ask "Is it really worth it?" I would say "NO"
