I haven't used Pathfinder for years, but recently updated to version 8. I am incredibly surprised, and a bit put out, to find that you can't preview MKV or Avi files. I've seen a couple of posts with others complaining (for years), but all I've seen as a reply is "we'll speak to our developers".

So, developers can I please have an update on this as the ability to view MKV's (probably the most popular video format on the planet) within preview should be available.

    Hi Darren,

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Path Finder depends on Finder in regards to what files it can preview. 
    I will make sure to ping our developers with a request to review this behavior. 

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
