Insert Blu-ray into disc drive.

Step 2: Choose format and set profile.

Navigate to “HD Video” > “H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)” as output file format. In addition, If you can play movies on iPad without iTunes, I suggest you to choose M3U8 format since you can get more influence media playback with this format. You can search the format in the search box in bottom right corner.

Tip: You can preview the output video size and adjust video size, codec, birate, etc and audio channel, bitrate in settings. If your Blu-ray contains 5.1/7.1 audio, this app allows you to preserve the surround sound.
