Offering fast speed and one of the most spectacular displays ever seen in a mobile device, the new iPad 3 really rocks for wathing movies. Video has stepped up to 1080p from the previous 720p which means you can enjoy HD even Full-HD videos on the new iPad 3. Still, one big problem is that the new iPad 3 only supported certain file types which formated in .mp4, .m4v, .mov. However, this doesn’t mean we can not copy more movies like 1080p/720p MKV videos to the iPad 3rd generation. Despite of lack of offical support, we can get HD MKV files onto new iPad 3 for smoothly playing with Mac.
According to my experience, in order to watch MKV HD movies on new iPad 3, we need to convert MKV to new iPad 3 compatible video formats along with some help from a third-party software. Video converter varies. A recommended one is Pavtube’s new iPad 3 HD Converter for Mac.
