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.

December 14, 2014  |  By kevindelal

Pros

When it comes to playing videos I always choose the best which offers simple controls and mkv player was my obvious choice.| The download is fast and its very easy to forward pause and manipulate such controls in the player.

"Try this latest video player for free."

December 10, 2014  |  By JacqulinelxWisniewsk

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

I was searching for a software to get started with MKV file type and amazingly I got this free MKV player which is good and dedicated in providing the best quality of MKV files. I just need to install it and begin to use, which proved to be a perfect player to my system.

Cons

No problem yet, as it is good in speed and quality.

"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"

September 02, 2014  |  By goyuntuybdrv

 |  Version: Free MKV Player 1.0

Pros

none - look at the company - google it look on WOT >> web of trust

Cons

Cons are the shills from this company trying to tell you its a great program - its probably a front end for the free ffmpeg but loaded with crap. look at all the sofware from this company its all the same size. thats because its a web downloader that downloads a bunch of crap from the web to your computer!

Summary

don't be stupid --- DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS CRAP!!!
