A good Blu Ray ripper that allows you to see the movies on your iPad?

Discussion in 'iPad' started by Juan I. Cahis, Jan 9, 2012.

  1. Dear friends:

    Please, recommend me a good Blu Ray ripper that allows me to see the movies
    on my iPad.

    I am planning to buy a Blu Ray reader to be connected to my HD TV set, not
    to my computer. I don't like to see movies on traditional personal
    computers.

    But I don't want to be forced to buy my movies twice, one in Blu Ray format
    to watch them on the TV set, and another in DVD format to rip them (using
    Handbrake) in order to see them on my iPad.

    So maybe the solution will be to buy an additional external USB connected
    Blu Ray reader, in order to be able to rip the Blu Ray movie in a format
    apt to be seen on the iPad. Which software will you recommend me to do
    that? Is Handbrake able to do it?

    Which are, approximately, the prices in the USA now for an external device,
    able to be connected through USB 2.0 to a Mac, capable to read Blu Ray
    disks, and to read and burn CDs and DVDs? Do you have an specific
    recommendation for such a device?

    Many BluRay disks come with a digital version for loading onto your
    computer.

    Do you mean that many BluRay disks come with a file in it, that it can be
    downloaded to a computer, and then converted to an iPad format using
    Handbrake? Did I understand you well?

    Some of them come with a "digital copy" that can play on iPads without
    conversion. Careful, some of these have to "unlocked" and have a time
    limit. Which is okay. I got a full 3-disc set of LOTR for $5 at our
    local discount store because the digital copies had all expired. I just
    wanted the Blu-rays myslef.

    You don't have to convert anything. The BluRay discs that have the
    'digital copy' feature will just load right into your iTunes library.

    One caveat, some movies now have 'ultraviolet' digital copy and not what
    was and is used by most. That won't stuff it into iTunes and requires
    using the god-awful crap they do support.

    They come with a file that can be played on the computer or synced with an
    iPad/iPhone/Apple TV to be played, without any conversion.

    Some have a process that lets you download a file instead of copying it
    from the disc. The end result is the same though; you get a playable file
    that needs no conversion.

    To come back to your initial question: Give Handbrake a try -
    http://handbrake.fr.

    Any DVD or Bluray-like source which is NOT copy-protected can me
    migrated into iPad readable format. (removal of copy protection is not
    supported)

    It would take 25 to 50 gigs of space on the iPad to put a blu-ray movie on
    the iPad and hen you won't get high quality playback. The data rate is
    likely to be too fast for the iPad's processor.

    it would be transcoded for the ipad display and be significantly
    smaller.

    I use makemkv to rip the BluRay, I don't think handbrake will rip a BluRay
    but I could be wrong. I then use handbrake to transcode to iPad format. Use
    the iPad preset and change the picture size to 1270 wide. I then use
    Identify2 to set the meta info with all the pertinent info and cover art.
    Bring the file into iTunes and that's it.

    Thank you for the pointer, I did not know that program.

    On Mac, I have been using DVDFab and it was nice, but their latest
    version 9 is unstable, and they do not seem to realize it.

    it's not a pointer. it's spam and it's crap software.

    all you need is handbrake for whatever conversions you need.

    which DVDFab does very nicelly.

    They mention "you may use a separate app to decrypt". Unfortunately,
    BluRay is often DRM intensive :(
