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. 

Software Requirement: Pavtube ByteCopy/ByteCopy for Mac

With such a tough task, I had spent a lot of time searching online, tried several SWs - some ok but always something that does not quite to do what I need. Luckily, I finally got this Pavtube ByteCopy. Not all videos output from a multi-track DVD can keep the original video effect, intact audio tracks in different languages. 

It is a pro version Blu-ray/DVD ripping program, it's not only able to remove disc encryption and rip them to iPad readable format, but also keeps the original DVD/Blu-ray multiple audio tracks, so that you can free switch the language during playback. The mac version is ByteCopy for Mac.

Get this ByteCopy installed and let's start the workflow easily. 

Part I: Convert DVD to Multi-track mp4 for watching on iPad 

Step 1. Import DVD disc, DVD folder, IFO/ISO image files. 

Insert DVD disc to your ROM, click "Load files" to import DVD disc directly from ROM. If you have IFO/ISO and DVD folder, choose the corresponding option to load DVD movies from your computer. 

 

The main title in your DVD will be checked by default; so let's move on and choose format. 

 

Step 2. Choose format. 

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. 

Btw, video size, bitrate and frame rate can all be changed if you are not satisfied with default settings. 

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. 

OK! We now can watch DVD movies on iPad with multiple languages using VLC player. 

Part II: Convert DVD to mp4 for watching on iPad with only one audio track 

Step 1. Run the program, load your DVD movies into it. DVD discs, DVD iso or ifo files are all OK. 

Step 2. Choose iPad video formats. Click on “Format” box, you can easily find the “iPad” category.  

You can select the one accroding to your device model. If this choice can’t meet your need, you can also click on “Settings” to set parameters. 

Step 3. After the above steps, start the process by converting DVD to iPad. 

Once the task is finished, locate the converted video files by clicking on “Open” and stream them to the iPad via icloud with ease. So there you have it. Pretty Simple! 

Now just enjoy and watch DVD movies on iPad the way you like (with multiple audio tracks or one audio track). Hope the article helps.

I have a large Blu-ray collection, and I like to rip some of my bluray musicals so I can watch in Apple TV/iPad . After doing some research the web for top blu-ray ripper, I find Pavtube BDMagic which is recommend by many online reviews.

The equivalent Mac version is Pavtube BDMagic for Mac. Just download it now and follow the step-by-step guide below to copy Blu-ray movies to iPad and Apple TV for smoothly playing.

(Note: Please read Top 5 Blu-ray Ripper Reviews.)

The Steps:

The quick start guide below uses the Blu-ray Ripper screenshots. The way to ripping Blu-rays to iPad/ATV on Mavericks (10.9 included) is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system.

Step 1: Click "Load file" button to import your Blu-ray movies to the nice Blu-ray to Apple Converter.

Tips 1: You can freely select the subtitles for your movies as you like from the Subtitles option.

Tips 2: You may also click "Settings" to set the Video/Audio Parameters like Size (resolution), bitrate, frame rate, etc to for iPad Mini according your own will. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step 3: After everything is OK, click the big "Convert" button to start ripping Blu-rays to iPad/Apple TV MP4 videos.

Once the conversion completes, you can click "Open" to find the .m4v or mp4 videos which can be directly imported to your iPad and Apple TV. You can also airplay the video from Apple TV to other IOS devices via airplay.

Collect Rambo Blu-ray on Apple devices(iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5S/5C/5...)

If you failed to burn this movie or are still looking for a way to copy or put Rambo on Apple devices(iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5S/5C/5...), look no further. Here is an easy and quick way for you.

Rambo [Blu-ray] (2008)
 
As storytelling, the latest Rambo is the most bare-bones of the bunch. Rambo has little to say, so it's especially galling that Stallone, as director and co-writer, obliges him to have essentially the same conversation at three different points (the final distillation: "Live for nothing or die for something"). The Burmese army goons seem in competition to commit the most hideous atrocity (e.g., child skull-crushing underfoot), the better to justify the eventual, lovingly protracted spectacle of them being eviscerated by high-powered weaponry. Although shot in Thailand, the movie has mostly been photographed in brown, reducing any particular sense of place but, perhaps, perversely increasing our gratitude for the splashes of purple whenever hot metal tatters flesh. --Richard T. Jameson



If you like Stallone, you must have watched Rambo movie. Have bought a Rambo Blu-ray disc and want to stream it to Apple devices(iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5S/5C/5...) for playback, but it requires good Internet connection. How can we get a permanent copy of your precious Blu-rays?

Getting DVD (ISO) video files into iTunes for Apple TV 3 with Dobly Digital 5.1 audio

If you'd like to stream DVD and ISO to Apple TV 3 with Dobly Digital 5.1 audio, you'll need to convert DVD yet ISO to iTunes or ATV 3 compatible video formats first. Read on to learn more.

Externally, the Apple TV 2012 (1080p 3rd-Gen Apple TV) is virtually indistinguishable from the Apple TV 2nd generation. That difference is its support for native 1080p video, as streamed from iTunes, over the Internet, or via AirPlay from a third-generation iPad. Yeah, you can stream 1080p HD movies and TV shows your buy on the iTunes store for enjoying on your 65-inch HDTV.

Besides, with proper DVD ripping software, you can get DVD and ISO into iTunes for Apple TV 3 streaming with original stunning image quality. But sometimes you may have problems in audio, in specific, Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. To help those who wanna backup and rip DVD and ISO's to Apple TV 3 with Dobly 5.1 audio, below, I'll throw a quick tutorial up.




First, to achieve your goal smoothly, the most important piece of the equation is that you have a suitable DVD ripping software hooked to your PC. There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your DVDs and let you watch them the way you want to view them.

If you're looking for ease of use, and don't mind spending $30 (they currently have a sale), I've had success using Pavtube's BDMagic for Mac (alternative Windows version) to convert DVD discs and ISO image files to a format playable with Dobly Digital 5.1 audio by Apple TV 3 and iTunes. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.

Converting/Importing DVD and ISO's into iTunes for Apple TV 3 streaming

1. After installing, launch the DVD Converter app on your Mac. and then press "Load Disc" icon to import DVD movie. Choose "File > Load from ISO/IFO" if you'd like to import DVD ISO image file.

2. Choose output profile. You can easily find several optimized profiles for Apple TV 3 under "Apple TV" category. Here I recommend you select "Apple TV 3 1080P Dolby Digital Pass-through(.m4v)" which works well for ATV 3 while maintaining 5.1 surround.

apple tv format1 Rip Blu ray to Apple TV 3 with AC3 5.1 audio on Mac

You can click "settings" to change the setting from the new default HD profile 4000 to 5000~8000 bitrate (Note: bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss).

apple tv settings1 Rip Blu ray to Apple TV 3 with AC3 5.1 audio on Mac

P.S. The key setting Video Size for your new Apple TV is according to your source video exactly. If your source video is in 1080p such as Blu-ray, you can set your video size in 1920*1080 in H.264 codec; while, if your original video size is in standard, 720p in enough. For example, to play DVD on the Apple TV 3, 720*480 video size with 4000~6000kbps birate is enough due to the dvd movies' native resolution.

3. Press "Convert" to start converting DVD to Apple TV 3 MP4 videos with Dobly 5.1 audio under Mac OS X.

4. Wait till conversion completes. Then press "Open" to find the ripped movie.

Add DVD rips to iTunes movie library for streaming to Apple TV 3:

You can then add the new mp4 videos into iTunes movie library. Open up iTunes and follow "File>> Add file to Library…" to sync video to iTunes.

For more information about how to stream HD videos to Apple TV 3 and connections for the Apple TV to pass-through AC-3 5.1 audio, please check Setting up Apple TV for Dolby Digital 5.1 pass-through.

Other You May Concern

1. Can the Apple TV 3 support AC3 5.1 audio?

The answer is Possible. According to my experience, the 2012 new Apple TV is not able to decode 5.1 surround sound to stereo by itself, if you want to play AC3 5.1 (Dolby Digital surround) audio you will need an AV receiver.

2. Does the Blu-ray rip play silence or gray screen in iTunes?

No. iTunes does not play video contents with AC3 audio, but the Apple TV pass-through presets create video with both AC3 and AAC, so iTunes will find and play the AAC track instead.

3. Does the Apple TV 3 Dolby Digital Pass-through preset work with iPad?

Yes. The preset also work with new iPad. It plays stereo by default. If you'd like to play surround sound effect, enable Airplay to have iPad stream the video to Apple TV 3, which pass-through AC3 audio to receiver.

I hope you enjoyed my guide and enjoy your synced up Apple TV 3!

How to get my DVDs on to my iPad & iPhone

Summary: The guide shows you an easy way to rip and convert DVDs to Apple Device playable MP4 format for watching on iPad and iPhone.


I have bought some DVD's which I would like to transfer them to the iPad & iPhone so I can watch my favorites on my iPad & iPhone while travelling. Now I'm looking for ways to get the DVD movies onto iTunes, and then sync to my iPad & iPhone.

iPhone 5C Review and Video Tips- How to convert DVD to iPhone 5C

Summary: This article focus on iPhone 5C Review and Video Playback Tips. I write it aiming to show users a perfect way to watch DVD movies on iPhone 5C.

The 2013 iPhone 5C takes the 2012 iPhone 5 in a less-expensive, more fun direction with colorful unibody polycarbonate shells in red, green, blue, yellow, and white, along with an improved FaceTime HD camera. Well, first of all let's have a look at this cheaper version of the iPhone.


iPhone 5C Review :

GADGET DESIGNER

Apple's iPhone 5C is a slightly cheaper, more colourful alternative to the firm's latest flagship iPhone 5S smartphone.

While some expected the iPhone 5C to launch below the £300 mark, it seems Apple has instead decided that it's not willing to compromise on price or user experience, designing its new "cheaper" smartphone with the same specifications as last year's iPhone 5.

It's clear that the smartphone is going to divide opinions, mainly with its refreshed design and overhauled iOS 7 operating system. However, we think that the more you use it, the more you might be won over.

Design

The iPhone 5C's colourful plastic casing is the first thing that will divide opinion. Some who encountered our bright green iPhone were quick to dismiss it as "toy-like" and "cheap", while others said they were impressed by the premium feel of the device.

As we pointed out in our iPhone 5C first impressions, the phone's polycarbonate plastic back has a surprisingly quality feel. The unibody casing feels sturdy and tough, and as we found when we accidentally lost hold on the glossy handset above concrete, it's pretty resistant to scratches too.

The glossy casing will be a nuisance for some, and during our first couple of days with the iPhone 5C we found it difficult to keep a firm grip on it. However, now that we have got used to the handset we find it comfortable to hold, perhaps more than the iPhone 5 due to the new handset's smooth, rounded edges.



That could also be helped by the handset's size, as it's slightly thicker and heavier than the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S handsets at 132g and 8.9mm thick, making it feel more solid and comfortable in the hand.

We liked the physical buttons too, which match the colour of the device - be it a white, blue, yellow, pink or green iPhone 5C. The volume buttons are larger, and more rectangular than those on the iPhone 5, and we found these more satisfying, and easier to press.

Beyond the slippery, glossy back, we have another small gripe with the redesigned casing, and that's the SIM slot. We found the port on the iPhone 5C's right hand side is prone to picking up dust and dirt, and we had to be remove it in order to clean it properly. The headphone jack on the bottom of the phone can also feel spiky to touch, which could be an annoyance for some depending on how you hold the handset.

Screen 

The iPhone 5C's 4in 1136x640 326ppi Retina display is unlikely to disappoint. Despite being the same as on the last generation iPhone 5, which has since been succeeded by the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, the screen still stands out as one of the best on the market. Colours are vibrant, text is crisp, and although the display isn't great in bright sunshine, not many are.

Our only real issue with the screen is its size. With Samsung, HTC and Nokia releasing smartphones with larger displays, the iPhone 5C's 4in screen feels small, in turn making the handset seem somewhat dated.



That said, the screen is much more usable one-handed than most of its competition, and given that Apple is targeting younger users and new smartphone users with the iPhone 5C handset, this could work to its advantage.

iPhone 5C Video Playback Tips

I believe more people will buy this new coming Apple iPhone and it would be good to play DVD movies on iPhone 5C during a boring travel or a long flight. Unfortunately, you cannot directly transfer DVD to iPhone 5C.
