MKV to MP3 converter is a simple piece of software with one mission: convert MKV files (video) into MP3 files (audio) in the highest quality possible.
MKV to MP3 converter does what many tools do, but it's lightweight and for one specific purpose. Most other tools rely on hefty libraries that take up more disk space and use more memory, but they have multiple purposes. There is a "Pro" version that offers more latitude in terms of MP3 output profiles, but this review focuses on the aspects of the free version.
The tool's user interface is fairly straightforward. The user can simply click a button that says "Add," and then they add in all their MKV files. Batch file input is supported, so the user doesn't have to enter in one file at a time. However, in batch mode, the audio quality must be the same among all files. Conversion is relatively fast but nothing to write home about.
MKV to MP3 converter is a tool that works with a decent interface, but the biggest problem with it is that it does not support more than four MP3 preset outputs. This is an issue for users who need other qualities that may be required for certain applications. There are also more modern tools offered for free that do not require payment for further add-ons. It seems like a stretch to have a "premium" option on such a basic, rudimentary tool without much online support.
