watching DVDs on an Apple iPad

By , on [atom feed]

Just for reference, here is a recipe about how to watch your DVDs on an Apple iPad. I have read that some of the required steps may be illegal to perform when you are in the USA (or an American citizen?); don't follow these instructions if you are not allowed to!

The instructions provided here use MPlayer/MEncoder on Ubuntu Linux to convert the DVD content into a file of the required format, but many other options are available.
