MakeMKV for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / March 25, 2013

The number of programs claiming to allow conversion of video files and DVDs makes choosing an appropriate one difficult. MakeMKV for Mac performs this task well, but its lack of features and relatively complicated interface may make it a less desirable option for average users.

The program seems to be available as freeware, but its documentation states it is a beta version that will stop functioning after 60 days. It also states that downloading the latest version will reset this time limit. Installation was more complicated than expected and required us to accept a lengthy agreement disclaiming the developer's responsibility for any illegal use. Once MakeMKV for Mac started, there did not appear to be any dedicated instructions, although support for upgrades was present. The program has a number of buttons for its different functions along a top row. For experienced users, this would not be confusing, but the less sophisticated could use additional help. The program recognized the DVD in the optical drive and loaded options, which was a welcome feature. In addition to discs, users can also work with video files. In reading the DVD, the program took a little longer than other, similar programs, but worked well. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any options for output other than in MKV format, which is disappointing. In addition to conversion, users may also select a streaming option for the movies, but the function is not clear.

While functional, MakeMKV for Mac's lack of features and complex interface make it a viable option only for a limited number of experienced users.
