How to convert & get DVD movies onto iPad Air easily?

Buying a DVD and getting DVD onto an iPad Air? So I bought Frozen on DVD and after that I got a new iPad Air, and I found out about something called Disney movies where I can buy Disney, Pixar films and watch it on my iPad. I am in love with Pixar and Disney's work, but I don't want to buy everything, all these DVDs, on iTunes so I can watch it. Is there a way to watch these DVDs on my iPad Air without buying them again on iTunes? Thanks.


Basically, there are two ways to play DVD movies on an iPad Air tablet.

1. If you buy the version with a "digital download" which is pretty common with the new movies, you might be able to watch them on your iPad Air.

2. Buy DVD's -> Rip them-> Convert to MP4 -> Sync via iTunes to iPad Air.


In this step-by-step tutorial, we will show you how to easily rip & convert the DVD disc movies into iPad Air playable videos. If there's no DRM on the DVDs then you can purchase them and use a free program called Handbrake to rip them to mp4 format, which can then be loaded on the iPad. That's how to get DVDs onto iPad Air free. But for most purchased DVDs, there is DRM which requires a special app to convert them into MP4 format. What we use here is DVD Ripper (DVD Ripper for Mac) which is able to rip any DVDs into whatever file format you want. Follow the instructions below and you will learn how.
