Convert DVD to mp4 for watching on iPad with multi-track or only one audio track

Look for DVD to multi-track/one-track video solution? Pavtube ByteCopy will help you rip DVD to multi-track mp4 or standard mp4 for iPad streaming via icloud with few clicks.

Question: Since I’ve seen how easy and fast it is to convert a DVD (already stored in my HD) into a single mp4 file, I’ve thought about converting all my dvd’s into mp4’s then I can directly stream them onto all my iPad via icloud. But what is important (to me) is to be able to rip some DVDs keeping at least two audio tracks in one conversion (ex: both English and French audio, or German, English and Spanish audio) and for some DVDs I only need one audio track. With VLC, I would then be able to select which audio track to hear, if any.

However, DVDFab only supports one audio track; FairUse only supports one subtitle track; AutoGK does not seem to do h.264 at all and HandBrake seems to be limited to a single subtitle track as well. So I am wondering if there is a software (free or not) that can do that? Please note that I am quite new to DVD conversion and would prefer a software that's relatively easy to use, i.e. with simplified options or some sort of pre-validated presets. 

In fact, it is easy to archive DVD to mp4 container conversion with one track or multiple audio tracks preserved. The following short guide shows you how to convert a DVD to mp4 with multiple audio track as well as one audio track.

Click the "Format" drop-down list and choose "Multi-track Video> Multi-track MP4(*.mp4)". The original DVD chapter marker and audio tracks will be kept automatically. 


Step 3. Adjust video & audio settings (optional) 

Click the "Settings" button to check all video & audio settings. By default it will check all the audio tracks (languages), so if you only need some of the languages, just check the unwanted ones.

Don't forget to click OK to confirm all the changes. 


Step 4. Start conversion. 

Click the big red "Convert" to start converting DVDs to MP4 with multiple languages. 

After conversion, hit the "Open" or "Open output folder" icon to quick locate converted MP4 videos, transfer it to your iPad via icloud.

Convert M2TS with DTS for Playback on PS3 with AC3 5.1 Surround

This guide shows you how to convert an m2ts file (with DTS audio) to AVI/MP4 so that it can be played on the Playstation 3 with AC3 5.1 surround soundIt just like the way of enjoying YouTube Videos on PS3. Any good suggestions there?

'I'm watching M2TS through a HDTV on my PS3. All works fine except the M2TS files with DTS audio (I can see the video, but there is no sound). Then what's the problem? Any way to make my M2TS files with DTS audio playable on PS3 correctly?'

Play M2TS on PS3

In fact, M2TS files can also be played on Sony PlayStation 3 (Learn how to convert MKV to PS3 with tsMuxeR). However, DTS audio is basically higher quality than AC3, which can't be playable on the PS3.

Therefore, the DTS audio will need to be converted to AC3. This is a lossy conversion, but it is a very acceptable sacrifice considering AC3 can have a very high bitrate.
 Here with Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter, you can convert M2TS with DTS to playable format on PS3 much faster and easier-to-use than other similar tools with high quality AC3 5.1 audio. Besides, it integrates many presets for iPad 4, iPad Air, Amazon Fire Phone as well as the upcoming Nexus 8; many other presets waiting for you to pick up.

Here is how to encode M2TS with DTS audio to AC3 5.1 AVI/MP4 for playing on PS3

Please make sure the output and speaker setup support 5 channel audio which can be accomplished by using an optical out connection with a surround speaker system. 

1. Import source media files
Download, install and run this M2TS to PS3 converter. Click “Add video” button to load your source M2TS files into the program. The DTS to AC3 Converter is multi-task based and supports batch conversion, this means you can load in multiple video files to convert at one time.

2. Select output format
From the Format bar, navigate to “PSP/PS3” catalogue, and choose "PS3 Video(AC3 5.1)(*.avi)" which can directly output AC3 5.1 audio without settings.

If you only want to get mp4 format, choose "PS3 Video(720p) MPEG-4(*.mp4)" or "PS3 Video(1080p) MPEG-4(*.mp4)" depending on your requirement.

If you choose mp4 format, you need to change the settings from AAC Stereo to AC3  5.1.

Click “Settings” button, the “Profile Settings” windows pops up, on which you need to set the audio codec to ac3 and set audio channels to 5.1 Channels. This ensures your output videos encoded with ac3 and create 5.1 surround surrounds for PS3 playback.

Apart from changing audio codec and channels, you are also allowed to reset video resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, audio bit rate and sample rate on this window.

AC3 5.1 Settings

4. Start conversion
Click “Convert” button to start converting M2TS with DTS to MP4/AVI AC3 with 5.1 Channels. As soon as the conversion finished, you can click “Open” button to get the generated files with ease. Now, you can transfer converted videos to PS3 via USB flash drive for smooth playback without any problem.

For example, play 4K videos on VLC could not be an easy workflow.

Hot Search: 4K to QuickTime | 4K to FCP X | 4K to Xbox

4K Ultra HD is a much more intimate viewing experience than Full HD. In many respects, the best way to view 4K is analogous to the way we view films in a cinema. Old style cinemas were shoe-box shaped and most patrons sat typically 3-5 screen heights away, because that was the most comfortable viewing distance.

However, it is also costly to achieve 4K Ultra HD, for the data amount of each frame is as big as 50MB. That is to say, the facilities of top configuration are required for both decoding, playing and editing a 4K Ultra HD video.
