    Download Gotsent to convert .mkv's to .mp4's if you want to convert .mkv to .mp4.

    Stream to me is another great app, it will stream 720p .mkv files with minimal CPU useage, as it doesn't need to convert them on the fly.

    If you need to convert .mkv to .mp4 use GotSent, it's free and it's an awesome converter designed to only convert .mkv to .mp4. The quality is amazing when done and it's fairly quick to.

    iPad doesn't support MKV files. iPad vide players still can't support it well, you have to convert.

    Just for clarification: VLC got removed from the App Store ages ago. So, it's not a viable alternative.

    There is an app there called vlc streamer and another called vlc remote. One streams from your PC and the other is a remote control app that let you control vlc running on a PC.
