Recently, I have noticed many iPad 3 owners discussed a problem in forums. “I’m looking for a smooth MKV player for iPad 3, and it also should support smi subtitles. So that I can smoothly play HD (720p/1080p) MKV files on my new iPad. Can anybody suggest a good HD MKV player for the new iPad?”

Because of iPad limited formats support, the new iPad users cannot play 720p/1080p MKV files on iPad 3. For this problem, I have got a solution, that is converting 720p/1080p MKV files to iPad 3 formats compatible.

Firstly, the new iPad as media player, it only supports below video formats:

  • H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High Profile level 4.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

That is the reason why we cannot play MKV files on the new iPad.
