    HandBreak works just fine for the iPhone. Don't see why it shouldn't work for the iPad. And bonus... HANDBRAKE IS FREE!!!

    there are a bunch out there, mostly using the same tech just with a different front end slapped on. I bought one when I initially ordered my 3g, but the a/c synch kept getting messed up on its rips. So I got a refund, fired up DVD Decrypter + Handbrake and they worked perfectly (albeit in 2 steps). When the unit arrives tomorrow I'll see how the quality looks, but they look good on my 30" dell...

    $28 for software that does the same job as Handbrake, which is free?

    No thank you.

    Another vote for Handbrake. I encode all my videos for iPhone, iPad, Macs. Heck even the media center running windows 7. Paid software is not always better than free.

    What settings are you using on Handbrake to get a good picture on the iPad?

    I use handbrake as well, I just use the default universal settings and it looks great on the iPad.

    I've been using HandBrake for years, but recently when I tried to use it to rip Avatar, it kept saying that I needed to install VLC -- which I had installed already.

    So out of frustration, I tried WonderShare's DVD Ripper. It had a much better user interface than HandBrake and it included an iPad preset. It was fast, to, utilizing 10 of my Mac Pro's 16 virtual cores. I now have Avatar on my iPad.

    They have a free trial but I paid the $45 for a license.

    DVD into an iPad? Sounds like turning lead into gold. I'll gladly pay anyone $20 who can show me how to turn a DVD into an iPad. :D

    That said, my favorite software for converting a DVD movie into a file that can be played on an iPad is 123movies2IPOD. ;)

    If people want to shell out money for something even after being told about the free alternative, more power to them I say. Keeps the economy moving.

    Spam

    I removed the link from your post because the people who run that site/software spam the forums here and I'd be wary of downloading their products.

    If you see recommendations by newbies for a specific non-free product or link to a strange website/blog, it's most likely spam, so please report it using the [​IMG] button. I've already had to remove several spammers from this thread. Thanks :)
