MKV Player is a multimedia player that you can download for free. It is simple to use and comes with all the basic features you would expect a player like this to have. It can open your most common video file and audio file formats, such as MP4 files and MP3 files. What is unusual is the button controls use words instead of symbols, but that’s no big deal.

Anyone who is a novice computer user can adapt to Free MKV Player quite easily. It is a free program that should not have any problems running your video files and audio files. You won’t find too many settings available, though. The settings that are available can be found on a dropdown menu, so you really have to look for them. These options include file association, subtitle pause, and video speed. But there are no options to execute DVDs or modify video effects as you can do with VLC Media Player.

Even though the player has limited abilities, it also doesn’t use up much of your system resources either. That alone makes it valuable.

Windows Only

The media player is only compatible with Windows computers. There are no other features offered right now. MKVPlayer is only good for opening MKV files. You can set up your options to play MKV files automatically.

Playlist Creation

The software lets you create playlists of your favorite audio and video files. You can save files to the playlists and modify them whenever you want.

If you have several MKV files that you love to watch, then it is easier to organize them into playlists rather than to search for them individually. All it takes is a couple of clicks to play the files from your playlists. No searching required.


You don’t need to change many settings. When you play a video, you can modify the file association, subtitle display speed, and video speed. You can’t modify the default equalizer or implement any fancy video effects. The file data cannot be modified either.


You’ll love the attractive interface of this media tool. It features one window with all the button controls and the timeline of the video and audio. There are additional settings you can use by accessing the dropdown menu, which you can find underneath the video window.

Overall, the software is not the most advanced player available, but it can do a good job of playing MKV files with ease. If you have movies or music in this file format, then you can’t go wrong with the MKV Player app.
