I tried this before when it was given away and uninstalled. It can only do one thing, like a car that only goes straight but never around corners.

The German developer Sebastian Dorfler has been providing his wonderful XMedia Recode for many years. It can convert 71 different input video formats into 45 different video formats in exchange for which Sebastian charges $nothing at all

https://www.xmedia-recode.de/en/formate.html

Contrast that with this developer Dimo whose "converter" manages just a single solitary video format and wants $38 for it. Though it is free for the next 24 hours, I know which is by far the better prospect.

MKV is not a format.

It is a container that can contain many formats.

The idea was to create an option that software and hardware vendors could use universally instead of having to provide dedicated support for a wide variety of them, as well as use something that is licence free.

MKV and MP4 are probably the most popular formats, unless you largely use Apple products, in which case it may be MOV.

PhilS, I am no expert and do not understand it all, least of all your comment.
‘MKV is not a format’ .......... ‘MKV and MP4 are probably the most popular formats.’
Make your mind up, it is or it isn't?

Laxative, I understand where you are coming from. I should perhaps have used the term file extension as being favourites instead of format.

But I hope that you follow the general gist.

Last time they had this off GAOTD, the software threw up a prompt saying the serial number was used too many times.

Why the need for a separate program just for MKV files?  Most video converters will convert MKV files also.

Dimo products consistently show themselves to be huge disappointments and I have stopped even trying them now.

The little bells and whistles that they advertise on top just don't make up for what are very flawed products.

As a good free alternative, HandBrake is open source, contains no adware and supports practically all formats.

Pointless commercial software that appears to be seeking to exploit the ignorance of computer users gullible enough to think MKV is a rarity. It isn't. Countless video converters from countless other software developers, free and paid-for, can handle not merely MKV but most if not all other formats, so cluttering a computer with this absurd Dimo product and its truly laughable $38 re-install price tag makes no sense at all.

The oddly-named, yet easily usable, Open Source Avidemux freeware is effortlessly superior to this offering and includes basic yet effective editing facilities, too. Other GOTDers will likely have other alternatives to suggest in preference to today's miserable one-trick pony.

i think MKV is the the most advanced if not best container, it can contain Video, audio subtitle or chapter metadata, it can contain softsub SSA/ASS subtitle styling which MP4 can not, almost all my MKV file can be easily played on my Device, the only matter is what the audio video codec used on that container as H265 is the most efficient on storage space but is the most unplayable on the most device, so most time i make other format into MKV not the vice versa

Convert MKV to any popular format for better playback???
What in the world I seek out MKV as being the most superior playback for computer please tell me what gives better playback

Reply   |   Comment by MOV  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

MOV , many TV's, including mine will not play .MKV video's, so they must be converted first to another format

Reply   |   Comment by Steve  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

MOV , An MKV file is a container file, which contains other languages ​​and subtitles. And, if MKV uses the same Video Codec as mp4, every media player can run that.

Steve, That depends on what TV you have.
The latest new flat screens can run MKV. Also that of the ALDI.

Steve,

Try PLEX media server (Free) to handle your TVs. I have Samsung smart TV and a Chromecast TV. The Samsung would not play the .mkv HEVC 265 format directly, but going thru PLEX, they play just fine on both TVs. I also maintain the latest K-Lite Codec Pack, which includes all audio/video codecs.

MOV , If you can play a video then converting to different lossily compressed video regardless of format or lossy compression WILL ALWAYS DEGRADE THE QUALITY OF THE VIDEO in a quantifiable way. The ONLY reason to change format of any video is to make it play or play better (using less resources) on the target hardware and software. Personally I find Dimos habit of cutting down the accepted input format of its Dimo Videomate product and then selling it as a variety of cut down specific converters to be pointless to the consumer. The pointless and practically unusuable dumb webserver bundling to pretend it can stream content to a smart tv is laughable as no normal smart tv includes a player like VLC unless its an android TV and it includes not way to shut down any of the server instances started by the program other than to shut down the entire program and all the different servers you may have inadvertantly started as you tried to stream more than one folder heirachy! And the downloader is very limited in functionality too.

Hadrianus, My TV is a 40" Samsung 3D Smart TV, and doesn't want to know .MKV at all, even from a movie on a USB memory stick, I also have a Chromecast so there are ways around this, - very disappointed with this model TV as it always tells me those codecs are not supported and there is no software upgrade for the TV

Thank You for all the input .
I too have a TV that only uses one format for video I forgot because I am connected by HDMI.
In my opinion a far better option than conversion and using a inferior TV player and likely terrible remote functionality
☹☺[Mitsubishi use your patent for shuttle jog on a universal] sorry my little rant for the old VCR day remotes ☹☺I really liked that function.

Downloaded and installed without any problems on a Windows 10 Desktop.
A Link is included in the "Read Me" file to the website to receive a License. Pretty Straightforward, no hoops to jump through.
It converted a 178mb MKV into a 1.38GIG MP4 in 21 seconds.
I thought this was a rather lopsided conversion so I used WONDERFOX CONVERTER and it converted the same MKV file into a 175mb MP4 in 33 seconds.
I converted a couple more MKV videos that were less than 200mb and each time I got a result that was larger than a GIG.
These results were unsatisfactory. The program was both installed and uninstalled with ASHAMPOO UNINSTALLER without any problems.

Thanks, GAOTD but I'm going to pass on this one.

Tim,

Thank you for this test and report.
According to your test, the Dimo MKV vide converter software is an obvious Fail.
Saved others from wasting their time installing it.
