MKV Player - Top 3 MKV Players to Play MKV Video Files.

The best HD converter can help you play MKV videos more easily by converting HD MKV to any other formats...

Best Free MKV Player

The Matroska Multimedia Container[1] is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It natively supports features like alternate audio tracks, multilingual subtitles and chapter points, as well as rich metadata authoring including cover art, ratings, descriptions and more.

MKV supports multiple Video/Audio codecs. Furthermore, as a container format, MKV supports nearly all Video/Audio codecs. Perhaps the MKV video you download from internet contains different codecs. Therefore you need to find a MKV Player which directs at this powerful container format.

No.1: Free and User-oriented MKV Player - DAPlayer

DAPlayer is free MKV playback program which is dedicatedly developed by Digiarty Software who has contributed WinX DVD Ripper Platinum to public as a gift. This MKV Player is made for bringing you an user-friendly and customer-oriented Matroska video playback solution. With easy to use interface, you can easily play MKV video no matter you are an experienced software master or not. Tremendous video playback capacity allows you not only play MKV video, but also other videos with large-scale formats, such as H.264, MPEG-4, AVI, MOV, WMV, FLV, etc.

Besides, built in relatively smaller file size, DAPlayer makes more effective use of your computer resource. Meanwhile, it supports Variable Framerate video encoding (VFR), which makes MKV video surpass AVI container formats. VFR is a term in video compression for a feature supported by MKV container format which allows for the frame rate to change actively during MKV video playback, or to drop the idea of frame rate completely and set individual timecode for each MKV frame. (If your MKV player doesn't support VFR encoding method, then it may cause the Video/Audio out of sync issue when playback MKV video files)

Thanks to constantly updating to support newest video formats and defeat upcoming Blu-ray encryption technologies, DAPlayer is definitely your ultimate MKV playback software. It also features sorts of additional functions, such as video resource managing system and make DVD/BD digital backup, etc.

No.2: Cross-platform MKV Player - VLC Media Player

With the VLC player you are actually getting two things: a fine MKV player with full compatibility with Matroska, and support for most video and audio streams you will find in an MKV file. This means that you most likely will not have to install any extra codecs or filters, depending on what your streams are. Besides, choose VLC as your MKV player, you can organize and operate MKV video's multiple video/audio/subtitle tracks in a decent way.

Somehow, VLC Player lacks user friendly interface, and though armed with advanced features but it is just too complicated to handle with them. And once you drag MKV video into a VLC playlist, it cannot change position on the list. By the way, VLC does not willingly accept Blu-ray Disc and rm video.

No.3: MKV Player in high repute worldwide - DivX Plus Player

DivX Plus Player not just playback MKV video, but play it in a good way. There are some enhanced MKV playback features to DivX Plus Player like: supports up to 8 MKV multiple subtitles and audio tracks, offers smooth fast-forward and rewind MKV playing process and auto-generated MKV chapters.

Unfortunately DivX Plus Player is a commercial software which means not free available for users. And as a MKV video player under the old label, it sometimes need to consider about add Blu-ray video playback function, which gives a larger range of MKV media playing options (since some of MKV video contains in Blu-ray Disc).
