Did you want to play MKV HD movies with subtitles on your new iPad 3 or iPad 4 or iPad mini tablet? Some video player apps can’t play MKV with external subtitles (1080p mkv, 720p mkv), but we can convert .mkv to .mp4 for iPad(iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini) with converting soft subtitle (external subtitle) to hard subtitle (forced subtitle). The following guide will show you how to convert MKV with subtitles for iPad.

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.
