"Convert MKV for playback wherever you are."


Although MKV file formats are widely accepted and used, there still exists a percentage of users who have playback issues with Matroska Video files. Bigasoft MKV Converter will solve these issues simply by converting MKV files to a format of your choice, something like AVI, WMV or MP4. This way you can watch your favorite videos in all your devices without problems.


Just run the installer, follow a series of few simple steps and wait for the main installation process to finish. The overall installation procedure won’t take more than a minute or two. The setup package doesn’t contain any type of malware (viruses, Trojans, etc.) and is also clean from additional advertised software.

Supported operating systems are Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 7, 8.


MKV Converter has a modern and warm interface with plenty of graphics and buttons. Below the menu bar is the toolbar with some quick access buttons, such as Add File, Trim, Crop, Effect and Preference. The middle part of the screen is dedicated to imported video files; the right side has a list with all added video files and the left side has preview screen for watching the currently selected file. The bottom part of the window has a few settings related to the conversion task. The big blue “Play” button on the bottom right corner is for starting the conversion process.


The main purpose of this program is to convert files of the Matroska Video format (MKV) into other file types like AVI, ASF, MOV, VOB, MP4, WMV, MPG and others. But when you want to convert a video file for playback on a certain device you can just select it from the device list and the program will automatically find the appropriate format and best settings for it so that you don’t have to mess around with advanced configurations. Supported devices include Android, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry, Zen, Archos, iRiver, PSP, Xbox and Zune.

What’s also really cool about the program is that it can convert not only MKV files, but other types of video files as well (AVI, ASF, WMV, MP4, MOV, QT, MPG, MPEG and many others).

Using the implemented video editor you can edit your videos prior to converting them. You can trim/crop them, add effects (black & white, oil painting, line drawing, wood carving, negative, embossment, etc.), add watermark, change brightness/contrast/saturation and add subtitles.

If you create a profile with custom audio/video settings you can save it and use it whenever you want to in the future.


No cons here.


Useful tools for converting MKV files: MKV to AVI Converter (paid), Ultra MKV Converter (paid), XiliSoft MKV Converter (paid) and GetGo Video Converter (paid). All of them have about the same features, their downside however is that they do not support a wide range of file types for conversion.


Bigasoft MKV Converter is great tool for all your MKV-conversion needs (and not only). Its broad list of supported video files can help you out in a lot of situations, so if you convert video files often then it can become a long-term partner of yours.

Requirements: CPU >1GHz Intel or AMD CPU. 512 MB RAM or above.
