Thread: [iPad]How to get the mkv videos to the Ipad mini?
Hi, I’ve got the Ipad mini and I want to get some videos in mkv format to my Ipad by iTunes – Films, but it doesn’t allow me to do it. Can you help me, please? I have installed some apps in my Ipad to play mkv videos like Playable, OplayerHD and HD player but I can’t put any mkv to my iTunes and then to my Ipad.

From the thread, you will found the Handbrake and a MKV Converter are the best ways. HandBrake, a powerful audio and video encoder for Mac and Window users, supports conversions from dozens of formats, including MKV — an open-source container format capable of containing multiple audio, video and subtitle tracks totally free, but hard to handle, and conversion speed is too slow! So if you don’t worry about the conversion speed and more time, try handbrake.
