Because of its 9.7-inch 2048×1526 high resolution multi-touch screen, the new iPad (iPad 3) is ideal for watching movies and TV. If you have some DVD movie collections in hand, you may want to get the movies off DVD discs to iPad 3 for playing back on the go. Along with some help from third-party software, you can easily backup and rip DVD to iPad 3 supported video files. However, due to the limited storage, you can only put several DVD rips to iPad 3. Don’t fret! Below, I would show you an easy way to compress DVD to less than 2GB of MP4 videos for iPad 3 so that you can enjoy more movies on the gadget.


Before anything else, you have to download an app that you are going to use later. You are required to download and install:

Pavtube DVD Ripper (available for 20% off now while getting a free video conversion tool).

  1. Download the free trial of the Windows version here, and the Mac version here.


The program is an easy-to-use yet powerful DVD to iPad 3 Converter. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other. Frankly, I’ve had success using it to convert and rip DVD’s yet ISO image fiels to a format.

  1. Choose output format from “iPad” preset

Click the pull down menu at the end of “Format” to select an output format for iPad. Here I choose
“iPad 3 (New iPad) HD Video(*.mp4)” for instance.

  1. Change the settings to make sure the output size less than 2GB.

Click on “Settings” you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

To convert a DVD to less than 2GB of MP4 video , you can just set the bitrate to 1500~2500kbps. For your reference (here I take a ):


Codec- H.264
Resolution- 1280×720 (HD)
Bitrate- 1500/2000/2500kbps
Framerate- 24fps


Codec- AAC
Sampling rate- 48khz
Bitrate- 128kbps
Channel- stereo

For watching videos on lastest Apple Tablet, 720p with 2000kbps is very sharp, crystal clear. Maybe it was just me but this was by far the best looking format, size.

  1. Start the conversion.

After everything is OK, you can click “Convert” button to start ripping DVD to MP4 for sync to iPad 3. When the process completes, you can transfer them to iPad 3 via iTunes.

In this way, you can backup and rip DVD into less than 2GB of MP4 for work on iPad 3 and enjoy more movies on the go!
