Step Two. Choose target video format.

Choose the iTunes supported formats in the "Format" dropdown list. You can go to "Common Video" or "HD Video" options to find what you like. I think MP4 format is better for iTunes.

For iPad Air, choose " iPad Air Full HD Video(*.mp4) for play with iPad Air.

For watching on iPad Mini 2, select "iPad Mini HD Video(*.mp4)".

For enjoying on iPad 3/4, choose "iPad 3/4 (New iPad) Full HD Video(*.mp4)", or other preset if you don't need full size.

Step Three. Customize video specs. (Optional)

Click "Settings" to open profiles settings window. Here you are able to customize video size, bitrate, frame rate, sample rate(Hz)…all the specs can be fixed manually. A personal tip: the higher bitrate you choose, the better video quality will be; and you will get videos in larger size.

Tips: DTS to AC3 5.1 Availability - Set advanced video and audio settings.

Click on "Settings" button, and the following window will pop up, which enables you to adjust video and audio parameters including codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, etc. Here you set Audio codec as AC3, and adjust Audio sampling rate and Bit rate to fit your player. By the way, 5.1 sound is available in "Channels". I find that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step Four. Start Conversion.

Go ahead and click "Convert" button to get MKV with DTS Audio to iTunes conversion started. After a while, you can find the generated file for iTunes quickly via "Open" button.

Now open your iTunes and then sync the converted mp4 movies to iTunes library for convenient playback on iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad 3/4 or stream them to other iOS devices (iPhone/iPod) for smoothly watching.
