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.
