Convert DVD to iPad is one of the questions I get quite frequently. I made this video to show you the process I use for getting my movies onto the iPad. It does require some software (which works on both Windows and Mac) and it takes a little time for the DVD movies to prepare but it is a process that is simple and easy.
Convert DVD To iPad
In case you cannot see or hear the video, here are the basic steps for convert DVD to iPad:
- Download and install Handbrake + the VLC plugin (automatic)
- Insert a DVD movie into your computer
- Open Handbrake and press the “source” button
- Press the “Presets” button and select “Apple – Universal”
- Press “Start”
It will take about an hour for the movie to finish. Your mileage may vary but this is the time it takes on my own system with a standard 1.5 hour long movie.
Once it is done, drag-and-drop the movie file onto iTunes and then Sync your iPad.
