iPad Mini 2 won’t run MKV files- How to enable iPad Mini 2 perfectly play MKV

Summary: If you want to add MKV files(especially with DTS audio) to iPad Mini 2, you need to convert MKV to iPad Mini 2 friendly format like MP4 first. Here is how.

When you got iPad Mini 2, you can easily enjoy some movies files on Mini 2 from iTunes library. Well, ever tried to add some personal videos from your computer hard drive to iPad Mini 2? It’s a wise choice in fact to get much fun, but the only issue is that some 1080p video files like MKV can’t be supported by iPad Mini 2 directly.

Q: I've tried AVPlayerHD, PlayerXtreme & Infuse. I cant find any video app in the store that will play MKV/x264 videos with DTS audio on my iPad Mini 2.

In fact, the reason you cannot play MKV videos on iPad Mini 2 is simple: the default and downloaded player on iPad Mini 2 cannot find a suitable decoder for the file. Currently iPad Mini 2 as the old version only supports limited videos in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov formats. And as far as I know, there’s few video player for iPad can support DTS audio codec well. A fast solution I’ve worked out is to converting MKV to MP4 for iPad Mini 2 tablet.

To achieve your goal smoothly, you need an app like Brorosft Video Converter (available for Windows and Mac users) to make MKV files compatible with your iPad Mini 2. Brorsoft Video Converter is an easy to use yet powerful high-quality video converter, player and editor. It can help you solve all the video(MKV, FLV, MPG, MPEG, AVI, WMV, VOB, etc) playback errors with iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple TV or other portable devices. The equivalent Mac version is Mac Video Converter for iPad Mini 2. Just get the right one according to your situation.

How to: Convert and Put MKV files to iPad Mini with best video quality

1. Load MKV files

Run the video converter for iPad Mini 2. Click "Add File" to load one or multiple .mkv file(s) into the program.

2. Set video format for iPad Mini 2

Hit the menu bar of "Format", choose "iPad" category and find the optimal video format for iPad Mini. “iPad > iPad Mini HD Video(*.mp4)” is recommended here.

Tip: If the preset video/audio parameters can’t meet your needs, just click Settings icon to adjust the video bitrate, codec, frame rate, audio sample rate, audio channel, etc.

3. Start the conversion

Hit the big Convert bar to start the MKV to iPad Mini 2 conversion. The conversion time mainly depends on your source video file size.

After getting the converted movies files, you can sync the converted MKV files to iPad Mini 2 via iTunes. If you don’t know how to transfer and play video on Mini 2, just follow the steps to realize it:

1) Make sure you have install iTunes. If not, you can free download iTunes. And launch it.
2) Connect iPad Mini 2 to Mac/PC.
3) Choose “File – > Add File to Library…”
4) Drag the .mp4 file you want to the iPad Mini2 icon.

Now you can start watching MKV movies on new iPad Mini 2 anywhere you want them.

    With the Apple users' explosion, more and more people have a burning desire to play MKV files on their Apple portable devices or player, for example, iPad. However, from Apple official website, we learn that MKV is not supported by iPad series. So it becomes a big issue to play MKV on iPad Air/iPad Mini/iPad 4/iPad 3/iPad 2/iPad for these people who have tons of MKV files in hand.

    Luckily, the following article introduces a step by step guide on how to play MKV on iPad for both Mac and Windows users at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/mkv-on-ipad.html

    It's a real timesaver.
