    I got the Wondershare DVD to iPad Converter, and made a video on Youtube to show how to convert dvd to iPad by using that software.

    BTW, for iPad, I found the HD format (1280*720) is more suitable for its 9.7 inch LCD touch-screen. Cool~~~~

    It combines Blu-Ray Ripper and Video Converter, not only let you convert beween all video/audio formats, directly rip/convert/copy Blu-ray or DVD movies, but also give you the easiest and most effective way to remove protection from all your Blu-ray discs, DVDs, then you can also convert, edit and play on iPad, iPod, iPhone, Zune, Xbox 360 and so on.

    Handbrake is available on Windows as well. The most recent version is almost as good as the Mac version. Fully serviceable though.

    DVD to iPad

    Several of the programs listed (handbrake) and others (AnyDVD and DVDClone Mobile) will work - but you have to adjust the settings. AnyDVD will decrypt it - then you need to run DVDClone Mobile to get it to the format - and you have to edit the .ini file to include the new resolutions.

    OR - Daniusoft has a DVD Ripper program that does everything and has formats for the iPad and every other device. Actually, it has three different resolution formats for the iPad.

    DVD Ripper - Best DVD ripper software, DVD ripping software, Convert DVD to AVI/MPEG/XVID...

    It also looks like a modern program = graphically pleasing to the eyes.

    One note - it takes it a while (hours) to decrypt, decode and create the iPad output.

    It might take less if I had used DVD Shrink first and then this program. But, this is a learning process.

    Of course Apple's tech support response is that they only support movies purchased from the iTunes store.

    There is no reason to pay for software to convert DVDs for your iPad. The articles that are linked in the posts above are just blog shills for the software developer.

    I posted this earlier in this thread, but since some may have not have seen it I am quoting it here.

    Mac Ripping Program: Mac the Ripper
    Windows Ripping Program: DVD Decrypter
    (may be better ones. I haven't used it in years)
    Video encoder: Handbrake
    Handbrake has a preset for AppleTV. This is the one I use to encode for my iPad.

    BTW, if you want to convert a Blueray, you can use MakeMKV to rip to an MKV file. Handbrake can then convert to an iPad friendly format.

    Trust me - I hate paying for software as well - but most of the programs listed, especially Handbrake - don't provide an ease of use for people that are not really technically enabled for the MAC side of things.

    I tried handbrake and the output resolution was ridiculously low in the Apple TV setting. That is why I chose a purchased product that had some tech support with it.

    Free is not always "free" when it costs a lot of my time and effort and does not produce the results needed.

    On the other hand - thank you for providing the information that you did. With more experience, they will come in handy in the future.

    Handbrake works very well for me. If you choose "Toggle Presets" from the toolbar so that the preset-drawer opens up and then select Apple > Universal, it works every time.

    I have to disagree that handbrake is not easy to use. To convert a video/Dvd to an iPad friendly format requires only three steps.

    1. Load the video into handbrake.
    2. Select the AppleTV preset.
    3. Click Start.

    I am not sure how much easier it could be.

    As far as the output resolution, using the AppleTV preset only changes the resolution of the video if the video's resolution is greater than 720p (since the AppleTv and iPad don't support higher resolutions). I used handbrake to encode my entire DVD collection (over 300 movies) and I have yet to be dissatisfied with the results. What exactly didn't you like about handbrake's output?

    Indeed. Use the Apple > Universal preset instead. It's much, much better and will look as good as you're hoping for. It's too bad that the guys who wrote Visual Hub called it quits. That was a very elegant application and I used it all the time to convert videos for my iPhone.

    I have been having the worst time with avatar DVD. I'm ripping it with DVD decrypter and trying to convert it with handbrake. I clicked on it after it finished converting with the appletv preset and it wouldn't play on the laptop. Some error message came up. I'm close to giving up.
