    Hello,

    I just jailbroke my Ipad 1, and I want to watch mkv files using vlc player without converting them.

    Itunes will not transfer mkv files, so is there a simple way to transfer the file from my computer to my ipad?

    Thanks.

    Darwin,

    I use dropbox and goodreader to transfer files to my ipad.

    Dropbox and goodreader are must have apps for any ipad poweruser.

    Please investigate these apps, you'll be glad you did.

    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac.
