Play MKV on iPad offline in the home TV/Videos app

Other apps convert the files but you still have to go through extra steps to find the correct format for proper playback on the device and then launch iTunes to sync it. Besides this, some apps even make you install extra apps that will be able to play these files. WALTR 2 takes all the hassle and stomps on it!

Why MKV is so convenient

A lot of us download tons of these high-quality movies directly from the internet. In fact, they are usually in the MKV format. And it’s a great format to use, for sure. This format can also include any kind of an audio or video format. Besides great quality, it includes subtitles, which may be even in multiple languages.

The biggest enemy of all movie fans, that have their collection in .MKV format, is putting those MKVs into your iPad. Now-a-days, it’s a hair-pulling experience because iTunes & iOS devices do NOT support formats such as MKV, AVI or FLAC. And it’s a shame since it’s already 2020 and there are just too many people with these files. So, to get this done, we need to convert MKV to iPad. After we convert it to the proper format – MP4 – we use iTunes to sync and upload the movie.

Honestly, this is not the fastest or easiest procedure. This is why, we want to introduce a shockingly fast way to convert MKV to iPad using just one little Mac OS app.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, WALTR 2 is your best way to convert videos to iPhone or iPad. Simply because it doesn’t require using of iTunes, jailbreak and is just incredibly easy. It accepts any file type and supports any Apple device.
