    So ive got a bunch of dvd video folder movies/videos, what is the best way to get these converted to play on the iPad?

    Would Handbrake work?

    Handbrake is a good option. You may need to experiment to get the aspect and the file size to your liking.

    Handbrake is a free option, but the choice is down to you OP. Both will work, but the defaultmipad setting will be for the old iPad.

    Thanks guys!!

    I'll go ahead and try Handbrake since its installed already. Any tips on sure things I might want to alter to the new iPads resolution? I wish there were some guides perhaps I'll check out google.

    Is there any alternative to Handbreak? It takes about 1 hour and a half to convert a 45 min documentary :mad:

    Other program's will take roughly the same amount of time. Your processor is the bottleneck.
