The new iPad 3 offers fast speed and one of the most spectacular displays ever seen in a mobile device. Video has stepped up a good bit too, to 1080p from the previous 720, and again we saw a nice increase in quality over the former iPad. However, the third generation Apple tablet is not powerful enough to play all HD videos because of the limited file type on iPad (only available for .mp4, .m4v, .mov files). Depite lack of offical support, we can transfer more movies to the new iPad 3. The article below will show you an easy solution to realize the way putting 1080p and 720p MKV videos to new iPad 3 for playing smoothly.
In the first place, a third-party tool is necessary in order to play MKV HD movies on new iPad 3. The Converting tool – Pavtube Video Converter is recommended. The program is an all-in-one video converter and editor tool based on NVIDIA CUDA and ATI Stream (AMD APP) acceleration technologies. You can easily convert 1080p HD videos like TiVo, WMV, MKV, AVI, FLV, etc. to portable devices compatible formats for smooth enjoying, including Apple TV, iPad/iPad 2, the New iPad 3, Acer Iconia Tab A200, HP TouchPad, PlayBook and more.
To be honest, I use Pavtube for coverting TiVo and HD MKV videos for my iPad. It works very well and I haven’t really had any problems. Conversion speed seems very quick and the videos look decent on the iPad as possible as original. Now follow the steps below to copy MKV videos to new iPad 3.
Step 2. Choose the suitable format for iPad 3. This tool has many special presets for the new iPad to meet your different demands, you can click on “format” to choose the one you want (to get new iPad 3 profile, you need to download a patch).
Step 3. Start the MKV to new iPad 3 mp4 conversion by clicking on the big “Convert” button.
PS: The supported resolution of the new iPad 3 goes up to 1080p, though video playback and most apps never break out of 720p. For watching MKV videos on the new iPad, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. Below is the best format settings for the new iPad 3 per my experience, you can take it as reference (click on “settings” to do the adjustments):
Bitrate- 2000 ~2500kbps
Sampling rate- 44.1khz
Once the conversion completes, transfer the result videos to the new iPad 3 via iTunes. So there you have it. Pretty simple. Now you can enjoy and view MKV HD movies on new iPad 3. Enjoy.
