Ratings and Reviews
Streaming support and NAS browsing
The app is not able to browse for files stored on a NAS drive. You can see the files but the Open button is dithered. Also will not stream to Apple TV. Support is slow to respond and their reply seemed very non-committal around fixes for these issues.
The player, itself works fine. Much the same as other players with simple controls.
The registration nag is very annoying, particularly since once you’ve registered, they are slow to respond to support requests.
Developer Response ,
Dear landcruisers! Thanks for mentioning that the player itself works fine and easy. We’ve looked at NAS support issue. MKPlayer uses the Open panel provided by the OS and it seems to work fine in our environment. We are now in the state to focus on smaller fixes as well, but because we could not reproduce this locally the best we can do is to keep an eye on it in the future.
Thx for a FREE MKV Player !
Clean, Solid, UI friendly, and FREE ! Thx for making my media experience drag & drop, or open. A 2 second action. I had to convert MKV to something QT7 Pro would play, like MPEG. But now, Open, movie. I look at the time I have saved for conversions, and say thank you. Time is something you never get back.
Best Application for MAC - Period!
Not sure how hard it could be to create a seemless video app that can handle all controls in single keys, perfect aspect ratio customization and a good deal of format support. But I find only this player to NAIL'EM ALL for mac. Also with airplay inclusion this is my default video experience.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
