More than that, Pavtube new iPad 3 DVD Ripper also offers a “forced subtitles” option, which enables you to see subtitles only when actors are speaking a different language. For instance, if you specify English (your mother tongue) as your subtitles, and meanwhile tick off “forced subtitles” option, then when actors are speaking English, no subtitles will show up, but when they are talking with each other in French, the English subtitles will appear accompanying with the French. But you should notice whether the “forced subtitles” work or not, it totally depends on your DVD’s manufacturers, in others words, ONLY when there are forced subs in your DVD source, Pavtube software are able to display and reserve them once you checked “forced subtitles” option before conversion.


Step 3: Choose best video format for new iPad 3
There are three format presets optimized for the new iPad 3, which one to choose is totally depending on your own requirements. If you wanna medium video quality with relatively small output file size, you can choose “iPad 3 MPEG 4 Video (*.mp4)”, if you wanna get a 720p video for your iPad 3, you can select “iPad 3 HD Video (*.mp4)”, if you prefer to make full use of the new iPad 3’s 2048x1536 screen to watch 1080p DVD video(Blu-ray to iPad 3 ripping recommended profile), you can choose “iPad 3 Full HD Video (*.mp4)” as output.

Note: For standard DVD to new iPad 3 ripping, 720p video is recommended. Even if you choose the 1080p as target, no obvious visual improvement will appear, because the DVD movie’s original quality is much lower than 1080p.
