Software used: DVD Decrypter + free iPad Video Converter (100% freeware but difficult to handle, more time needed)
Why it takes a long time? The free solution need convert twice (DVD to VOB, and VOB to iPad). First of all, you have to rip DVD into one big file with free DVD rippers such as DVD Decrypter, then convert the ripped file to iPad playable files. There is no doubt that this will waste more time than the straight DVD to iPad conversion mode. Furthermore, the free iPad movie conversion software does not encoding in a batch.
Part 1: Decrypt DVD to your hard drive
1. Download DVD Decrypter for free, install it to your computer and run it.
2. Insert the DVD you'd like to watch on your iPad into the DVD drive.
3. Go to 'Mode' menu and select 'IFO' mode.
Hints: DVD Decrypter software has three basic operation modes: File mode, which handles each VOB file separately. ISO mode which helps you make and write images. IFO mode delivers IFO parsing that other rippers have offered for a long time.
4. Select 'Tools -> Settings' menu, go to the 'IFO' tab, and set 'File Splitting' to 'None' under 'Options'. This will help you convert the whole DVD to one big video file.
5. Come back to main interface, go to 'Stream Processing' tab, and check 'Enable Stream Processing'. Here will list all available streams including 'video', 'audio' and 'subtitle'. If you don't want the output file to include a certain stream just uncheck it. That's to say, if I've unchecked the stream 0x81 (the second audio stream) so the ripped VOB file would only contain the 'English AC3' language. Since the converted video can only have one type of audio and subtitle (or no subtitle), please check the first video stream '0xE0 - Video', then set the language and subtitle to what you like.
Optional: Set the destination of the ripped video file which will be rather large in size.
6. Hit 'Decrypt' button to start ripping DVD's to hard disk.
Part 2: Convert ripped video to iPad
7. Launch the free iPad Video Converter, press 'Convert' button, and click 'Video File' link.
8. The iPod Converter freeware has two ways of converting videos, Normal Mode and Power Mode. The former can only be used online, while the latter can be used both online and offline. Let's take Power Mode for example.
9. Hit the 'Select File' button to load the video file that you'd like to watch on your iPad.
10. Set the 'Device', 'Profile' to a format that play on iPad. Here, you can also customize 'Output Directory', 'Title'. To start the iPad media conversion, just hit 'Start converting' button.
11. The result video will be added to iTunes automatically after the conversion process is completed. Finally, sync your iPad with iTunes so that you can enjoy video on iPad.
The video converter for iPad does not support batch conversion. If you want to convert multiple movies, you have to do this one by one.
