Developed by VSevenSoft, MKV Player is a freeware application for playing movies. Although its name mentions the format MKV, this download allows the reproduction of many top popular playable video formats. It is handy and very simple, but with all the basic functions for the playback of any file. This program has been designed to work well but in a simple way, so it can play heavy files on any PC, even if it is an older model.
If you need to play MKV files or a simple multimedia file, MKV Player is a nice option, but austere enough. If you are looking for a highly-featured player, this software is maybe not the most appropriate, because it doesn’t include advanced options. It works with drag-and-drop functionalities and by double clicking on files to play them.
How to use
The interface consists of a single window for playback loaded with basic buttons. It works with drop-down menus and drag capabilities. You can drag the movie you want to play from the storage folder to the player window and watch it. During the playing, if you change the screen’s size the aspect ratio of the video will automatically be adjusted to the window form. It also offers full-screen reproduction.
