Backup my Blu-rays to iPad 4 and external hard drive for traveling

In this day and age, everyone wants high-definition content, and that means they either have to download the new 1080p video from iTunes or watch some Blu-Rays on their HDTV. If you’re a frequent traveler, you probably purchase a movie twice, one Blu-ray for collection, another in 1080p from iTunes store so as to put on iPad. Why bother? If you’ve already invested in lots of Blu-Ray films and TV shows, then it’s really not worth re-purchasing all your content on iTunes just to have it on your computer at the same resolution. I mean, there is a better way to go – by converting Blu-rays to digital video. Sounds familiar, but have no idea of how to rip a Blu-ray? You’re not alone. Lots of questions have been put up regarding Blu-ray backup, typically like this.

“I like to back up my blu-ray movies and put them on my iPad 4 and external hard drive sometimes when I travel. How to do a successful rip of commercial Bluray discs?”

The first thing you’re going to need for ripping a Blu-Ray is obviously a drive to read the disc. A Blu-ray Disc drive can range in price from $60 to over $300, you have many options. Then get a Blu-ray Ripper that works for your needs, by which I mean ripping Blu-ray to iPad 4 optimized MP4 video. So MakeMKV is not your choice. I recommend you what I’m using, the Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper, which tackles all regions of Blu-rays and DVDs at just $39.2 (discounted price).
