The all-new Apple tablet – iPad Air, with a 9.7″ inch backlit display with 2048 X 1536 pixels of resolution, is a good choice for playing movies. However, iPad Air doesn't have a built-in DVD-ROM or DVD player, which means you couldn't directly play DVD movies.
Fortunately, there is an easy and fast way to convert and put DVD movies onto iPad Air. For example, if you like Tom Hanks very much, now you can easily convert Tom Hanks DVD movies to iPad Air supported video formats like MP4 for smoothly playback with a DVD to iPad Air converter.
Seeing so many reviews, having tried many softwares, free or paid, I find Pavtube DVDAid (Read DVD Ripper Review) is just such kind of easy-to-use program to help you do the conversion in a few clicks. Tried Handbrake – didn't like it – tried DVD Fab – couldn't get it to work. But Pavtube is easy to use and free water-marked version a great idea to check it worked. The Mac version is DVDAid for Mac.
