iFile only supports video files supported by the built-in engine, while your torrent is most probably an MKV file. Is it?

Not sure! How do I know if it's a MKV file? I just want to know what I have to do to watch my video from itransmission! :)

You can normally tell by the file extension. An MKV file will have a .mkv file extension. You are going to need some sort of video playback app like AVPlayer or something similar.
