MKV Player 2.1.17


In my opinion the interface of MKV Player is its weakest point. It looks like it is from the era of Windows 95. The producers could play a bit more with the design. Another thing about the interface is the Playlist position. Once it is activated, it is pinned and you are not able to move it. This won't be an issue if it wasn't placed on top of the movie. My recommendation to MKV Player makers is to configure the Playlist just like all other players and make it free flowing. The notification bar is another thing that can be changed in the design. It appears on the screen every time when you change the volume or use the movie slider button to scroll over the movie's timeline. It's great to know what the volume level is. However nobody wants to see some notification centered exactly above the movie. It would be better to move it in one of the corners.

Basic Operations

MKV Player 2.1.17 is very easy to operate due to its clean design. You have quick access to each one of its features without searching for them within endless sub-menus. 


MKV Player is a very useful lightweight video player. If you need something simple and well-functioning, MKV Player is your solution. However I recommend that its producers take some time to develop a more appealing interface. 


  • Light-weight
  • Well-functioning


  • Interface design
  • Missing preferences and advanced settings
