This is freaking genius and you are a star! I used to convert mkv video to mp4 video with Acethinker Video Converter, free and works perfect. It is a cloud based software to convert videos without install any software in your device. Share it here as an alternative method.

I play my mkv on iPad without iTunes and conversion using WALTR. Works great, I'm happy!

Handbrake often fails on large MKV files. So an alternative is needed.
