If you are still purchasing movies in iTunes to watch them on your iDevices, then you have no idea how much money you have wasted. Because we always can transfer movies from computers to iDevices, no matter iPad, iPhone or iPad, and there are a bunch of free software can do that for us.
1. Freemake Video Converter. If you are a Windows user and like to converting videos all the time, then you must be so familiar with this freeware, nowadays, every tool adds the feature to run on Mac, but this one is really loyal to Windows, which means it can’t support Mac, so if you are a Mac user and want to convert DVD to iPad, you’d better choose a mac dvd ripper for ipad, not this one. But guess what, most PC users nowadays are Windows users, so Freemake is still very popular, not to mention its powerful functions in converting videos.
It is very flexible, as it is able to output to all the formats mentioned above as well as WMV, AVI, MPEG, QuickTime, VOB, SWF, 3GP, and Blu-ray. That’s probably everything that anyone will ever need. It also can do a lot of amazing things for us, like the ability to join video files together; convert photos in a video; add in special effects; split the video into chapters for easier jumping; and even upload directly to YouTube. Of course, it takes a little bit of skill and know-how if you want to achieve excellent results.
2. DVD to iPad Converter Suite. Well, I won’t say this software is totally free, it has a free trail version, but after the trail period, generally one month, you have to pay to continue use it.
3. Handbrake. Sounds very familiar, right? That’s because if you ask anyone which converter he uses, the answer 80 percent will be Handbrake. Compared to Freemake Video Converter, it has an advantage, which is it’s available on Windows, Mac and Linux, but to be honest, Handbrake really can’t meet the demands to convert a video with high quality. Moreover, it can only output videos in MP4 and Matroska, and audio in an MP3 format. These formats cover most devices but not all the format needs for some people.
So now, depending on your own needs, choose one among these tools, there is always one can help you out.
