Plays MKV file, but no sound on iPad Pro, how to fix?
“Hi all, I’m having issues playing MKV files on my iPad pro 9.7. I’ve tried 2 different apps, VLC player and OPlayer Lite. I can play .MP4 files just fine. But, when I play .MKV files, it only has video, but no audio. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is there some codec I need to install to get it to work? Thank for any suggestions.”
Due to license issues, most players have problems decoding AC3/DTS audio. If your MKV movies contain this kind of audio codec, you will run into audio lost issues while playing. In that case, we would recommend converting the MKV files to a format that is compatible with iPad pro first, such as H.264 and AAC encoded MP4 format. Here’s how.
