The iPad is a tablet computer designed and developed by Apple. It is particularly marketed as a platform for audio and visual media such as books, periodicals, movies, music, and games, as well as web content. At about 700 grams (25 ounces), its size and weight are between those of most contemporary smartphones and laptop computers.
The iPad does not have a disc drive. Apple prefers consumers download movies and related entertainment content from its proprietary iTunes Store. The software DVD to iPad Converter for Mac allows users to crop, trim, split or merge DVD videos when ripping movies to multiple formats, including MP4, M4V, MOV and MP3.
Step 1. Import Movie into DVD to iPad Converter for Mac
Click the “Load DVD” button, find the DVD folder of the movie you want to add from your hard disc or DVD-ROM, open your DVD folder, select the VIDEO_TS folder and click OK.
Or, click the “Load IFO” button, find the DVD folder of the movie you want to add from your hard disc or DVD-ROM, open your DVD folder, select the VIDEO_TS folder, press down Command to select all IFO files and click “OK”.
After you add your movie, you can select any titles or chapters that you want to convert by ticking the check boxes before them.
Step 2. Output Settings
On the left side of the main window, you can name the output file for the selected title/chapter, select a subtitle to put on your movie, and select an audio track.
At the bottom of the window, you can select an output format like MP4, M4V or MOV.
If you want to convert all chapters or titles to iPod in one output file, you can check the “Merge into one file” option at the bottom of the main interface.
Step 3. Start DVD Movie to iPad Conversion on Mac
After setting the output settings, you can just click the “Convert” button to start converting DVD for your iPad.
After the conversion, you can transfer the output files to your iPad with the sync of iTunes.
