"Can you Play DVD on iPad?". The iPad offers one of the best video experience in portable devices. Its 9.7 inch screen is ideal to watch high quality media. I encourage you to download various samples of HD quality free TV episodes and documentaries available on the iTunes store to experience the magic. There are plenty of opportunities available on the iPad to watch TV series and media, such as iTunes store itself is the biggest repository. And then we have the excellent Netflix app. ABC channel also has an awesome app on the iPad platform making best use of its large landscape and playback abilities.

But then there comes a time when you need to watch the media you have been acquiring in form of DVDs etc. Apple as always has been pretty restrictive in allowing what works and what not works on the iPad. Apple allows you to watch:

  • H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
  • Support for 1024 by 768 pixels with Dock Connector to VGA Adapter; 576p and 480p with Apple Component AV Cable; 576i and 480i with Apple Composite AV Cable.

DVD to iPad Converter Suite prefers to bypass the encryption immediately after it appears, stripping the protection before playback software recognizes the disc, and it can always catch up with the latest DVD copy protection variant. The iPad DVD Converter already preset the exact resolution ratio (1024x768) for iPad video, and you are allowed to customize the resolution yourself if you prefer to. When it comes to the conversion speed about the DVD to iPad Converter, it supports multi-core CPU, so you could find out it performs much faster than others, and even less than real-time. It not only can convert DVD to iPad, but also can convert any Video to iPad.
