MKV files are digital videos that are optimized to play with subtitle tracks. Many people who download a file with the extension MKV will often try to play it back with subtitles on video players and portables. As a container format file that stores multiple streams (video, audio and subtitles), MKV files cannot be played back on iPods or iPads, but they can be converted to MP4-formatted files that can easily playback on The New iPad.

Subtitles can be copied from the MKV file, or added during the conversion process. Here, we recommends using the iFunia Video Converter for Mac for video conversion on iPad. Now just download it for free and check out the guide below to convert your MKV videos to The New iPad with subtitles easily and fast.

You just have to pick and choose which profile you want to keep on your iPad. Play around and see which results you like best.
