Handbrake Settings for iPad
iPad’s HD high-resolution screen makes iPad perfect for watching HD DVD movies, TV shows, music videos, and more. You might want to use handbrakes to put some DVD movies or videos on your iPad but don’t know what is the best settings for iPad. Actually, you can use iPhone & iPod touch preset if you want to play output videos on all Apple devices, or use Apple TV preset for playback on iPad or Apple TV.
Handbrake Settings for iPad using Apple TV Preset
iPad and Apple TV can handle higher resolution, so I recommend use Apple TV preset if you want to make the most of your iPad’s HD feature and watch HD videos on your iPad.
1. Import DVD or Video to Handbrake
2. Select Apple TV preset
If you want to rip commercial DVDs, Blu-ray DVD movies excluded, the Apple TV preset is fine. If you need to convert HD videos, you can raise the resolution to 1280 width in picture settings.
Note: If you can’t find picture settings in your toolbar, right click the toolbar and then drag the picture setting icon to the toolbar.
3. That’s it. Just click the Start icon and let handbrake handle the rest for you.
Handbrake Settings for iPad using iPhone & iPod touch Preset
If you want your video to play on all Apple devices, you can use iPod preset. The output file size will be smaller than Apple TV preset, but the picture won’t be as good as Apple TV preset. Converting DVD movies and videos to iPad with iPhone & iPod touch preset is similar to using Apple TV preset. Just raise the resolution to 480 height and the output video will work on all Apple.
Note: If you don’t want to bother changing settings for your iPad, you can consider getting iSkysoft iMedia Converter for Mac, which provides optimized presets for iPad. Easily convert DVD movies and any format videos to iPad format, without worrying about all the settings.
