    Hey,

    I have a question, can I import my .MKV movies with subtitles into iTunes?

    At this time I got them loaded in Plex, but it would be nicer if I could put these movies into iTunes because then I got the ability to stream it from iTunes library to my Apple TV (without having to mirror it).

    Thanks!

    No, iTunes doesn't support MKVs. You'd have to use a program such as Handbrake to convert them into an iTunes-compatible format.

    Hmm, I don't have the energy to handbrake all my movies, so I'm fine with Plex.
    Can't wait when I can jailbreak my ATV3, so I can install the Plex application also there! :)

    I've read online I could try iFlicks for adding movies to my iTunes library. I'll think I'm going to try that. :)

    If the MKV file contains H.264 video and a sound format supported by iTunes then you should be able to remux it - I think this is what iFlicks does. If the actual sound and video are in unsupported formats then you'd need to use Handbrake or similar to recompress it.
