MakeMKV

1.10.8

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 12/2/2017.

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. It is currently in beta and free using the registration key that can be found in the forums (see licence).

MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called "transcoder". It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way. The MKV format can store multiple video/audio tracks with all meta-information and preserve chapters. There are many players that can play MKV files nearly on all platforms, and there are tools to convert MKV files to many formats, including DVD and Blu-ray discs.

Additionally MakeMKV can instantly stream decrypted video without intermediate conversion to wide range of players, so you may watch Blu-ray and DVD discs with your favorite player on your favorite OS or on your favorite device.

To install MakeMKV, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install makemkv --version 1.10.8

To upgrade MakeMKV, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade makemkv --version 1.10.8

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
