  • Testimonials

    Great for opening mpeg, mp4 and avi. I’ve also noticed you can also play DVDs really easily. Would recommend Win8 DVD Player for playing any video file and any random audio files like FLAC or AIFF.

    Jake Wilkinson, Manchester — United Kingdom

    It opens the ever popular MKV (Matroska) for your HD files, and also MP4 files that iTunes seems to love. I’ve also used it from RAM and QuickTime files.
