    its totally up to you.

    Ripping DVD's to itunes and then to your ipad can be easy if you find the right program for what ever operating system your computer. Some ripping software will require multiple steps and it could be a pain. Ripping DVD's to itunes also takes a lot of time, about one or two hours per movie.

    One thing you may want to look into is the fact that many DVD's now have a sticker on the front cover that says it includes a Digital copy on the disc. This means you buy the DVD, stick it into your computer and be able to copy the deigital file of the movie into itunes. Some make it really easy by inclucing a paper inside the DVD case with a special code that you type into itunes and it downloads a digital copy of the movie for free.

    You can use dvd2ipod if you're on windoze. It even does h.264 and it's really easy to use, even the interface is an iPod. Did I mention it is free?

    I always found handbrake confusing for some reason, maybe I'll try it again.

    Just as Mike said, it's all up to you, you can rip the DVDs use the right program like handbrake or ifunia, or just downloading to ur iPad.

    If the one is my favourite, I will buy it and then rip to my iPad, of course can download and stored in iPad too.

    It's a shame Handbrake can't rip copy protected DVDs.

    I use ifunia DVD ripper. It does take awhile to convert the videos (average of 2 hours) but, it's nice when your done. I have also downloaded from Itunes. Itunes is faster but, you can only play the movie on your computer or a apple device from my understanding. They both have advantages and disadvantages. With Itunes you have all the artwork and information, but with DVD ripper you have to find and enter the info manually. I have a collection of DVD's so, it's nice to be able to put them on my Ipad.

    How do you know what format a particular movie is? Also, what is the steps to take? Do I download the ripper onto my laptop PC and do the ripping there then somehow transfer to my iPad? Is there something already written on this I can reference?

    Thanks!

    I find cinexplayer after recent updates to work a bit better than VLC. But what difference does it make really if you can have them both :D
