    Hi all,
    Just joined and first post. I have a new iPad and was wondering what is the best (free) software for converting DVDs and Avi's to mp4 to give a clear and sharp picture. I have tried format factory and also loaded avi's through cinexplayer but the films don't look so sharp.

    Thanks in advance.

    +1 for Handbrake.

    If you search the forum, you will find a number of threads giving you the best settings.

    Here's another vote for Handbrake. It's free, it's easy to to use, it works, and did I mention it's free?
    Seriously, I've used it for dozens of movies downloaded off the web.

    I'll have to check out handbrake. I usually use SUPER for converting video.
