    hey guys
    I usually use videora to convert videos to my iphone/ipod, but when i use it for the ipad, the videos come out looking pretty bad because there is no option to convert to ipad resolution (which is higher than iphone/ipod obviously)

    anyone found a program that converts videos to ipad resolution?

    Handbrake is free and does a great job using either the apple universal preset or the appletv preset.

    I'm using Mediashow Espresso. It has an ipad preset option and uses ATI stream which uses the graphics card to speed up the conversion process. Not free but has a trial that lets you do 50 conversions.

    I've been using Handbrake for this. Usually works great with no problems with the appleTV preset. But Takes a long time on my iMac though (avg 4 hours per 2 hour movie). So I also use a third party program called iPad Video Converter for Mac. it works pretty for me, There is a free trial version without time limit and can convert full video.

    Just get the app"OPlayer HD" and transfer your videos over iTunes to the program without the need to convert them. It plays .avi, .dvix. etc... Works really well

    For me MelodyCan is the best software for different players. It can remove drm and convert files to different formats. You can try it_))

    If you have Windows 7 don't even try to use handbreak as "First things first. :mad:Handbrake:mad: on the Windows Platform does NOT decrypt Commercial DVDs. Let me repeat this. It does NOT decrypt commercial DVDs."

    you can try some of other conversion software. like whondershare. as to me ,[FONT=&quot]I always use best converter for ipad,[/FONT][FONT=&quot]to resolve some of incompatibility issue,[/FONT] but it's too hard for me to master! I need a video conversion software that could easily convert DVD or other video into MP4 that ipad accepts.

    For $29.95(USD), I bought and use Cucusoft's DVD to iPad Converter.

    Yeah, it's not free, but it almost point-click-use simple. It has worked so far on any DVD I've thrown at it, from old ones to new.

    It's just that Handbrake is so hard to understand/use... [/end whine].

    As always, YMMV.

    Last week I downloaded handbrake ipad converter, the speed is very slow. Handbrake doesn't have iPad profile yet. But you can output to MPEG4 video, as iPad can read it.

    i'm just about to use handbrake for the first time to record a dvd for ipad.

    you guys suggest the 'apple tv' option. why not the 'ipad' option?
