How to Play AVI & MKV on iPad/iPhone

By Emily Watson, Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015

I previously wrote a guide on how to convert any video to iPad. If you check that article, you may know what video formats iPad will play.

By default, iOS devices can play .mp4, .m4v and .mov files and other formats like .mkv and .avi are not supported. So, if you attempt to import .avi videos to iTunes for syncing, it will end in error and of course forget about uploading this AVI file to iPad, iPhone or iPod.

To play AVI and MKV files on iPad successfully, you can use FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate to convert AVI or MKV to iOS devices supported formats. This software can convert MKV and AVI to MP4 to helps play MKV/AVI on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, PSP, PS3, PS4, Android and more.
