So .... when you download HD (5gb) movies from iTunes ... they play just fine.

But .... when I load my own movies of 4+gb (MKV file), using a video player such as VLC ... video plays but no sound or it doesn't play at all.

Also .... many of my MKV files have more than one audio tracks. What player will recognize that and allow me to pick a track I want to play?

Someone suggested converting MKV file to MP4 as iPad likes those more. I fund software and it's taking 5 hours to convert 5gb MKV to MP4. Will it help???

thanks.

do all your MKV files have 1 track audio??? Some of my movies have 2-4 different audio tracks.

"This brings us to the audio support – media audio streams supported include MP3, AAC, and the amazing Dolby Digital AC3 format. Couple this with Apple’s Digital HDMI cable, or if you have an Apple TV, Airplay, and you have a portable media extravaganza!"
