• I've been asked to help convert some DVDs to a format that can be played on an ipad for a relative.

    Any pointers on what format I need to use?

    My laptops are Ubuntu and Windows, rather than Mac, so appreciate this may not definitely be the right thread.


  • I've only ripped one, but did it via handbrake which you can get for linux and windows.

    and then ask it to reformat the ts files it spits out into whatever format you want, depending on how big the final file size you want should be, and/or the final quality of the file.

    edit: as @aggi says

    your best bet to play it on an ipad would be h.264, but make sure you double check what the original's framerate was so 24/25/29/30fps and make sure the reformatted one reflects that.
