The Open Subtitles MKV Player is a media player from opensubtitles.org, which supports a range of media file formats including DivX, mkv, wmv, avi, Xvid, DVD, MP3, MP4, VOB, 3GP, FLAC, Flash, QuickTime and many more. The latest version provides a lot of advantages over the previous versions. You don’t have to worry about additional codec packs anymore.

RAR files can be played straightaway. You can even play the .torrent files without having to wait for the whole movie to be downloaded. Just drag and drop the .torrent file into the Open Subtitles MKV Player window, and that’s it! You can enjoy the movie without any further delay.

The updated version of Open Subtitles MKV Player provides support for:

  • Dolby Surround, DTS, 3D audio, SPDIF and others
  • Audio and video streams, including video from YouTube
  • Up to 4 monitors or TVs
  • 3D video formats (new 3D option in menu)
  • HSBS SBS (side by side half and full)
  • OU and HOU (over-under Half and Full)
  • AF (alternating frames) with the possibility of conversion to different types Anaglyph
  • Interleaved or 2D format
  • Reader installed by SAPI in Windows
  • Latest version of Ivona reader

There is increased support for DVD movies, and for the subtitles in UTF-8 embedded in the movies. Playback of audio tracks embedded in the movies is fixed; fixed a bug that caused movies to be played too fast, and also fixed playing on Windows XP.
