    Hi, I'm new.

    so I'm getting an ipad 4 next week, and one thing I am really looking forward to is watching movies/anime/tv shows on it while I'm out and about in the world. I have a pretty big collection of HD videos but almost all of them are in .mkv format. I know ipads don't play it natively, but I also know there are workarounds, I just can't seem to find one that seems like it would be the best bet?

    Old posts in places pointed me to apps like AVplayer HD and Good player and such, but they all appear to have lost their audio codecs in the last few months. Are there any that actually support everything?

    The other option is converting, but I've never found a program that converts easily without losing either video or audio quality to a noticeable degree. I'm on a PC, if that matters...

    Any suggestions?
