    Hi,

    I was bought the Soprano’s DVD box set for Xmas and I’m trying to convert a couple of the DVD’s to my iPad as would like to watch it on the train to work.

    I’ve downloaded Handbrake and VLC Media Player and have managed to covert one of the DVD’s to an MP4. However, when I open it in iTunes the picture is all scrambled.

    I’ve tried 3 difference presets including Universal, iPad and Apple Video but all are producing the same scrambled picture.

    Any help with this matter is much appreciated.

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

    Thanks

    First of all, welcome to the Forum. I hope you enjoy your iPad - OK, when you get over this problem!! When you say the picture is scrambled 'when I open it in iTunes', do you mean open it on your PC or on the iPad?

    Sorry - I've almost certainly screwed up here and misunderstood your post - it's a habit of mine ;-)

    Let us know - don't get frustrated if you don't get an answe right away - Forum members are all over the world and it can sometimes take a few hours before the replies start rolling in.....

    Software needed & FREE:
    Free and powerful DVDFab software = DVDfab HD Decryptor - Video Decryptor - used to copy video files - located @ middle of page - Removes all the protections (CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS) while copying. It also comes with full HD-DVD and Blu-Ray support (Removes AACS).


    When done you should have multiple .vob files @ 1gb chunks then use handbrake to join and convert files for ipad.


    Hope this helps.

    I'm not an expert on this but I use Handbrake to convert DVD's to itunes. From there I'm sure you can get it to the ipad. I don't do that, I just watch the DVD's on my Apple TV and use the ipad as a remote.

    The scrambling comes from the DVD ripping. On my Ubuntu desktop, I wanted to rip one of my DVD and to do things faster, I copied the vob files directly on my hard drive and then using handbrake to convert those into mp4 files. The results was scrambled movies.

    But if I let handbrake rip the DVD itself, then the output is working as expected. I don't know if you would have the same problem in windows or Mac, but you cannot simply copy the files locally as the transcoder won't know that those files are protected.

    And in the end, the transcoding is not going any faster by using files directly on the hard drive, the overall time is essentially the same.

    I'm trying Handbrake and I've got a question. So far I have put a DVD in my computer, launched Handbrake, and selected the "ipad" preset. Then I chose the source (no trouble finding the movie) and clicked start. It's now encoding...

    Here's the question... Time remaining is 7 hours and 18 minutes! For a two hour movie! Is that normal????

    Going to bed now... Hopefully this thing will finish up by morning.

    I use DFDFab for both Bluray and DVD ripping/conversion. You have to pay for it yet it's a single step one hour process. When done you just add the file to iTunes etc.

    No joy. Encryption took 8 hours and all I got was garbage. :(

    You may want give xvid4psp a try....it encodes for all different types of hardware. From www.winnydows.com


    The ripping aspect of dvdfab is free...you're paying for the conversion part of dvdfab.

    For what it's worth I struggled with free apps for ages and even after trying app after app and then fine tuning and several successes I would still have movies with lip synch problems on a regular basis.

    That is what drove me to buy a program. I like the Slysoft products. They are the guys who broke the Blu-Ray encryption. I use ANY-DVD and CloneMobile with about 95% success rate.

    Once again I suggest WinX ipad video converter at this link:

    WinX iPad Video Converter - the Best iPad Converter - Convert Video to iPad

    It's on sale for $19.95 and there is now an offer to get the registration code free if you share it on Facebook or Twitter. See the page.

    I have this software. It's simple and works well. I have had no problems with syncing voice and picture. I did have a problem getting it to rip a Blu-ray, but their support told me how to fix it (I had to check the "Force A/V sync box for it to rip). Don't ask me why but it worked. This software is works for DVD and Blu-ray and is available for Windows and Mac. There is a trial version so you can try it. It limits the time available for ripping.

    BTW, lest anyone thinks it, I have no connection to this company. I do, however, appreciate unbloated software that does what it's supposed to do without requiring an engineering degree.

    What kind of disk were you trying to convert? Normal Dvd or Blu?
    Are you on a MAC or Wintel.

    when selecting the source, you chose your disk in the drive, then Video TS, and let Handbrake do the rest, until it was time to press strat, right?

    not trying to talk down, but jsut trying to get a base to strat from.
