    As far as we know, iTunes and Apple TV don't supports MKV video files. When try to play MKV on Apple TV, iTunes will not even import MKV, let alone to stream MKV to Apple TV (or MKV to Apple TV 2 or MKV to Apple TV 3) by via of iTunes.

     

    The following article will introduce a simple and fast way to stream and play MKV on Apple TV, Apple TV 2 or the new Apple TV 3: Convert MKV to Apple TV as well as iTunes compatible video format to stream MKV to Apple TV from iTunes for playing MKV on ATV successfully at http://bit.ly/R5uyt7
