Nowadays, many movies are made as MKV format on the internet. That’s because MKV format won’t lose any video quality or audio channel when you encapsulate BD/DVD movies. There is another important reason is MKV is an open source format.
Playing MKV movies on iPad Air/iPad Pro is still a big problem to many Apple fans. iPad Air/iPad Pro still doesn’t support for playing MKV movies natively.*
