It is free and can convert video to other formats on the fly when needed. Install is a breeze. I've ripped all of my movies to mkv and I can watch them anywhere in the house with the help of this program.

i doubt it will do 3d mkvs

As I said in my post, many people in the forums say they are using it for 3d mkv's. It is my understanding that as long as the codecs can read the video (as would be needed for any video) that it should work. I've done some reading on this as I plan on obtaining a projector in the near future and I've been using this software for a while.

A friend of mine has a GT25 3d tv, we tried a few mkvs authored as avchd and they work perfectly fine, he switches the tv into 3d sds mode and it's all good.

I have a sony bravia 3D ex72 and it seems to recognize the SDS files only when I play them with a sony 3D blue ray player. In this case, the 3d menu has "simulated 3d", "SBS" and "OU" options active. when I play it with my PC, the 3D menu of my TV only has the "simulated 3d" option available. do I need a special player on my PC? I tried with VLC, BSplayer, windows media player and power DVD5.

Just wanted to say thanks for this thread. I was pulling my hair out trying to find a player for mkv files, before seeing that all I had to do was set my tv manually to 3d mode!
