MKV2ATV is an application that can convert video files in the MKV container format to MP4 video files that are playable on the 'Apple TV'. MKV2ATV can convert most common MKV files quickly and has a queue for converting hundreds of files at once. Because MKV2ATV doesn't re-encode the video track, conversion is fast and the resulting video has the exact same high video-quality as the source file. Most subtitles are supported (see F.A.Q.). MKV2ATV can include a 5.1 surround audio track (if available) so you can play your movies in surround sound - when your Apple TV is connected to a 5.1 AC3 capable and compatible receiver.
• macOS 10.13 'High Sierra' or later

0.) Download MKV2ATV from the "Mac App Store" and once it has finished downloading start it from Launchpad or your Applications folder.
1.) Drag the MKV file(s) you want to convert onto the MKV2ATV icon in the Dock or onto its main window
2.) Select the audio-track to convert and press the "Start Conversion" button
Hint: Leaving the "Destination" popup at "Ask…" will ask you for the file destination when clicking "Start Conversion". You can also select destination folders like you Movies or Downloads folder.
3.) In the preferences you can opt to start converting files as soon as they are dropped, which could be helpful for converting a very large number of files. For best results select a default destination folder for converted files and make sure the default audio language matches your preference.
There are also some 'hidden' options that can only be switched in the 'Terminal' because we deem them to unpopular to complicate the interface with them:
• Insert jobs at bottom, like old versions used to do:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2ATV InsertJobsAtBottom -bool YES
• Produce streamable 'fast-start' MP4 files as output:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2ATV ProduceStreamableFiles -bool yes
• Don't try to make subtitle conversion more resilient:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2ATV FixSubtitleDuration -bool no
