guys what is the best .mkv player on mac
I use Plex to play all movies, TV shows and music videos. It plays many formats, including .mkv files. It will automatically download movie posters, subtitles, metadata, etc.
but i need to know the difference between "plex media center" and "plex media server"
i mainly need only a good player and i dont care about sync and such services
and does the player have gestures the control the video?
The server manages your collection, and the player plays it on any Mac, iPhone or iPad. If you don't care for that, you can use VLC Player.
thanks but i already have VLC and it failed to play it cause it says 00:00
but MplayerX and quicktime said that .mkv isn't supported
The .mkv file may be defective or damaged. I can play .mkv files on VLC with no problems.
I'll try to try it on windows to see what happens
In order to find out, what may be wrong with your video, you can use the following three applications to analyse a sample video file.
Media Inspector (2.99 USD in the Mac App Store (MAS))
When done, you can use the "Report" (VideoSpec) and "Export" (Media Inspector) button to export a report,
attachable to your next post via the button.
In MediaInfo you have to go to the Menu Bar, select View > Text and copy the text via CMD+A > CMD+C and paste it via CMD+V into your next post.
And if it is a torrented file, it could also be a fake.
I prefer Movist though.
I say VLC. I have been using it for years, and it has never failed on me. Matroska is supported
thanks guys very much
you were right the file was defective
