“I am a DVD movie fanatic and like to collect DVDs in ordinary life; so paying close attention to the latest movie information is also my favorite. Last Sunday my mother bought me The New iPad as my birthday gift and the moment when I got The New iPad from my mother’s hand, a thought rose in my mind that if I can copy a move DVD to The New iPad to view it offline? If so, how can I achieve it? BTW, my computer runs the Mountain Lion OS.”
To play DVD on The New iPad (or iPad 3) with a Mac, you will need a Mac DVD ripping application that enables to decrypt (rip) the DVD, and re-encode the movie on DVD disc to The New iPad MP4 video format.
Here I recommend you the Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac. It works on computer running Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8). And can do the DVD to The New iPad ripping/converting task perfectly. (Refer to “ripping Blu-ray to The New iPad” if you have a BD collection).
Below is a step-by-sep guide on how to rip DVD to 720p video for the new iPad 3 on Mac?
Step 1: Free download Pavtube DVD ripper for Mac, istall and run it on your Mac computer.
Step 2: load DVD source files to the iPad 3 DVD ripping software.
Insert your DVD disc into your computer Drive, then Load DVD disc directly from your DVD Rom; of course you can also load from a DVD folder stored on your HDD, or load from DVD ISO/IFO file.
Step 3: choose suitable format for the new iPad.
There are three output choices for the new iPad 3. To convert DVD to 720p video for the new iPad, the preset “iPad 3 HD Video (*.mp4)” is recommended.
Step 4: start the conversion.
After all set up is done, you can start the conversion, wait seconds, the conversion work will be done soon, then get the output video from the output folder, and then transfer it to your iPad 3 via iTunes program.
