Wondershare DVD to iPad Converter is a straightforward tool that will quickly convert any type of DVD (commercial or home-made) to an iPad-friendly video or audio format.

The program is very easy to use. If you're in a hurry then you can have it open your DVD and begin the conversion process in just five clicks.

If you'd like more control, though, Wondershare DVD to iPad Converter offers many ways to customise the videos it creates. You can choose a clip from the DVD, for instance; crop a particular area of interest from the original footage; add a watermark; or tweak the video's brightness, contrast or saturation, while applying some basic effects (greyscale, emboss, negative, "old film") or a deinterlacing filter.

And you're also able to choose your output format at a click. Normally you might select the regular iPad profile (640x480 resolution video), but there's also an iPad HD profile that will create 1280x720 videos.

If you prefer, you can also simply convert your DVD to regular video or audio formats (MP4, M4V, MOV, MP4, M4A, WAV). You can tweak every aspect of these, if you like (resolution, frame rate, bit rate, audio sample rate and more). And support for NVIDIA's CUDA GPU acceleration ensures the conversion process will run at high speed on PCs with a CUDA-compatible graphics card.

Please note, this trial version of Wondershare DVD to iPad Converter will add a watermark to the video files it creates, while limiting audio files to a maximum length of 3 minutes. Both restrictions will be removed if you purchase a licence for the program.

Verdict

A fast and very easy-to-use way to transfer your favourite DVDs to the iPad
