Most of you may have a load of WMV files downloaded or purchased from Amazon Store, BBC iPlayer, Blockbuster, Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copies, wbdigitalcopy, etc. After you got an iPad Mini or new iPad 3, you may want to copy those WMV files to your ipad Mini/new iPad 3 for playback.

Convert, Sync and Play DRMed WMV files on iPad Mini/new iPad 3
Step 1: Download and Install the excellent WMV DRM remover for iPad, run and click "Add Video" icon to import your WMV files. You can also simply drag and drop media files to the source pane to add. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files to convert at a time.
Step 2: Choose the output format. Click "Format" bar, you can easily find the optimized videos for iPad Mini and the new iPad. For iPad Mini, just choose "iPad Mini HD Video(*.mp4)". For the new iPad, "iPad 3 (New iPad) HD Video(*.mp4)" is recommended.
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the iPad Mini, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right. For the new iPad 3, 720p with 2500~3000kbps is just OK.
Step 3: After above steps, just click the big "Convert" to start removing WMV DRM protection and converting WMV to iTunes-complaint H.264 MP4 videos for iPad Mini and new iPad 3.
Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your iPad, here's the way to go:
1. Launch the iTunes and connect iPad to PC.
2. Choose "File – > Add File to Library…"
3. Drag the .mp4 file you want to the iPad icon.
As you see, now you can effortlessly watch DRM WMV videos on iPad Mini/new iPad 3 and enjoy the movies!
