How to convert MKV with dts audio to iPad

You may already find out that neither apple nor iPad is particularly open about the idea of diversity or compatibility. The iPad is a great handy media center but it doesn’t handle as many types of video files as we wish it could. MKV, on the other hand, is a container file, it can contains video, audio as well as subtitles or meta information about the movies. So there’s no telling exactly what kind of MKV files an iPad can play or can’t play. But most of the high quality movies are encoded with MKV files with h.264 video and dts audio, the problem to the iPad is the dts audio, which is a multi-channel audio file type used in surrounding sound. To play a MKV movie with dts surrounding sound on an iPad, you will need to convert the MKV file to something that is within the iPad’s compatibility to handle, such as mp4 or mov.
