Converting DVD to view on iPad?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i think i might be picking up an ipad soon, and one of the things I wanted to do with it was to use it to watch my dragonball z and anime dvds on the ipad

i did a quick google search and 3445436456 sites came up with software to do it, but what do you guys use? Handbrake seems to come up alot?

Also, I dont know what output format and what settings to use when I actually do it?

Anyone help me out? Thanks!

I would say DvdFab is about the best i used. Has all the settings you need to do it with. I haven't used handbrake so i can't comment on that software. And also super is 100% free and can do the job also.

I agree with the above. I have DVD fab, payed for it a long time ago. It was worth the money. Makes copying and converting DVDs simple.

If you can't afford that software i also gave you a link to super, which is free. You also get a free trial to try it before you buy it. So basically you aren't buying anything though. I didn't say buy it i said that is what i use. If something works fine for me and does the job i need. Then i have no problems supporting the software makers.

Handbrake is great and it's free. I use the Mac version but I suspect the Windows version will work just as well. Uses all 8 cores on my Mac Pro so encoding is very very fast.

To stream to my iPad I use Air Video. Works perfectly with all my MP4's that are not uniquely coded to iPad. I think it does the conversion on the fly to appropriate iPad specs.

cool, thanks...

the thing that interests me about dvdfab is that it supports CUDA, and since I have a GTX570, that might be the route to go for me...

In my early days of encoding I bought Badaboom for my GTX260 to take advantage of CUDA based encoding. If you have a GTX570 then something that allows you to harness that power makes a lot of sense.

jut watched a few videos on handbrake, and it seems really easy to use and has presets for output to ipad, and its free

so ill check out the free trial for dvdfab as well as handbrake and take it from there...thanks everyone
