The iPad mini does not have a disc drive, so you cannot insert a DVD movie disc into the device for direct playback. Apple prefers consumers download movies and related entertainment content from its proprietary iTunes Store. If you have some DVD movie discs at hand and do want to watch them on your iPad mini, there is no reason to pay for them in iTunes Store for a second time. The DVD to iPad Converter for Mac allows you to rip DVD movies to multiple iPad mini friendly formats, including MP4, M4V and MOV, on Mac OS X (including Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion).
The following step by step tutorial is going to show you how to convert DVD to iPad mini video using DVD to iPad Converter for Mac.
Import DVD Movie
Download the latest version of DVD to iPad Converter for Mac.
Run DVD to iPad Converter. Press the DVD icon to load the DVD movie you are going to watch on your iPad mini. After the movie is imported, there is a list showing each DVD chapter/title. From the table, you can know about the Name, Duration, Video Size, etc about the DVD movie.
Note: Check out the longest DVD chapter/title, which is usually the main content of the DVD movie.
