How to rip some of my Blu-ray musicals for watching on Apple TV/iPad

iPad and Apple TV can not play Blu-ray movies directly. To solve this issue, you need to convert a Blu-ray into an ATV/iPad-compatible file first and then airplay the files for playback. Luckily, we are here to provide you the way to fix it. Let's learn it now!

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. So I tried it and I have successfully ripped to mpeg-4 mp4 format to watch on my iPad and Apple TV. With it, I can rip most blu ray disc without additional software and it can also convert my blu-ray to iPhone iPad Dell tablet playable format with high quality and fast speed.

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.

P.S. Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper can do with all kindes of Blu-ray sources: protected and unprotected Blu-ray Disc, Blu-ray folder, Blu-ray ISO and IFO file.

Step 2: Press the "Format" button, and go to "Apple TV" options to find "Apple TV H.264 (*.m4v)". This format is best for playing on Apple TV.

Or you can select iPad > iPad HD Video(*.mp4) as the export format. The output videos could fit all iPad models with excellent quality. As you see, you can also select the optimized preset for your iPad model.

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.
