    I purchased an instructional video on DVD that I'd like to be able to access and watch on my iPad Pro. Can anyone explain to me how to transfer the video to the iPad?

    Makemkv, then Handbrake.

    iPad Pro will play h.264 mp4, high level 4.2, 160kbps AAC audio. Don't go below "Slow" in conversion speed. Other settings depend on the source material.

    Just use handbrake on its own if its only a DVD.

    Then add file to iTunes.

    Then put onto iPad.

    As a relatively inexperienced iPad user, can you elaborate a bit?

    Is handbrake an iPad app? I'm a PC user, so how do I add the DVD contents into iTunes? Then how do I put it from there onto the iPad?

    Handbrake is an app for PC and Mac. You run Handbrake on your PC to make an MP4 file from the DVD. You then add the MP4 file to iTunes, and sync your iPad with iTunes.

    Exactly. I would add Subler to the mix... as it easily adds metadata to the videos. It helps make the resulting file look "professional".

    I thought Subler was Mac only?
