4Videosoft DVD to iPad converter for Mac is a commercial DVD ripper. It can be used to convert your DVD movies so that you can load them and play them on your iPad. This app can convert movies into a few formats: H.264, MPEG-4, WebM, MOV, M4V and WMV. There are conversion profiles included for the AppleTV, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. These are optimized conversion settings for those devices. But if you choose "General Video" from the drop-down menu from which you select the profiles, you will see that the supported output formats are listed. If you then click on 'Settings' next to the menu, you can customize the conversion process to your liking. For example, you can change the resolution, codec used, frame rate, video bitrate, and a few audio settings. You can also save these personalized settings as a new conversion profile.
