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.

"High quality every time!"

July 27, 2015  |  By M. Flickinger

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

I have used many players in the past but; this free MKV player is different because it does not take away from the experience of enjoying quality videos. In video players from the past when I wanted speed, I had to compromise on quality and vice versa but, this player is above all those other players because you don't have to compromise on either the speed or the quality, you can have a seamless watching experience every time you use this tool. The tool has a no nonsense interface which is easy to navigate and very easy to get used to. I used this tool many times and never had a problem with it. For someone who has a very specific use in mind, this player is the perfect choice.

Cons

Some may find this player to be basic as it lacks a couple of the other advanced features.

"Too many other "cons" more than outweigh the pros"

June 23, 2015  |  By jdbunnell2

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

don't honestly know because I cancelled the install.

Cons

in clicking the download.com link to download this program it instead downloads a "download manager" that tries several times to install other programs that will change your home page and search options among other things. After carefully avoiding these problems it then tells you that is has to download some codecs. REALLY?! At that point I just cancelled the install

Summary

Really surprised and disappointed that download.com did not mention any of this in their review. If you try it out be careful and be aware. I hope that I can easily uninstall the "download manager" they tricked me into getting

"Don't bother"

June 18, 2015  |  By ShaRusha 69

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

None that I took the time to find out. Deleted as soon as I finished installing

Cons

Full of adware....and it took some time to completely remove from my computer as it leaves hidden files behind

Summary

Would keep looking for something else as this is a waste of download and time.
