MKV, i.e. the Matroska Multimedia Container, is an open standard free container format which holds unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks in one file. Unfortunately, the official Apple QuickTime player doesn't support .mkv file by default. As a solution, you can install some plug-ins to boost QuickTime's native file support for MKV file. Here I'll share top 3 MKV players for Mac, with which you can easily playback MKV files on Mac OS X (Sierra included) without any trouble.

However, some people find QuickTime Player 7 plays MKV files better without having to install any plug-ins. In fact, the earlier ones feature better support of older codecs when compared with the later version of QuickTime, So if you don't mind using older version, just use QuickTime Player 7 as your MKV player for Mac (mountain lion supported). You'll find it not a bad idea at all.
