With the stunning Retina display, the new iPad 3 has the best video playback quality we've seen from the tablet range so far. You can rent movies in standard-definition or high-definition format from the iTunes Store and watch them on iPad. Of course, we can also transfer our local movies to iTunes for iPad 3 streaming. But due to limitations (picky format), you may meet problems when adding materials acquired from other sources like movies in Blu-ray, DVD, DVD image files and .mkv, avi, wmv and more. To watch these movies in iPad 3 unacceptable formats, below is a simple tutorial for you, guaranteed to get Blu-ray/DVD, MKV/AVI/WMV videos and iPad 3 to play nicely.

As mentioned above, in order to transfer various formats of movies and videos to new iPad 3, we need to get some help from third-party tools.

To best honest, this software is simple to use and gives me exactly what i was looking for. I'm saving and digitalizing my entire DVD's and Blu-Ray collection of movies and concerts and now been able to put them on iTunes and watch them wirelessly on my iPad 3 with extraordinary quality. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other. To help those who wanna get their Blu-ray/DVD movies and some 1080p/720p MKV/AVI/WMV etc. videos ported over to iPad 3 via iTunes, I would share a quick totorial up.

Tutorial for Beginners to Enjoy Local Movies (DVD, Blu-ray, Video) on iPad 3

Step 1. Import source media files to the software.

After downloading, install and launch the Ultimate Movie Converter app for iPad 3 on your Mac, click click "Add Video" to load video files like MTS/M2TS, MKV, VOB, MOV, TOD, TiVo, etc or click on "BD/DVD folder" to load movie from DVD and Blu-ray source(Disc, folder, ISO).

Step 2. Select output format.

Click "Format" bar, you can easily find optimized profiles for iPad 3 under "iPad" category. Just select one according to your source video exactly. All of them play nicely on the new iPad.

Generally, if your source video is in 1080p like Blu-ray or some full hd video files, you can choose "iPad 3 (new iPad) Full HD Video(*.mp4)"; while, if your original video size is in standard, 720p in enough, and you choose "iPad 3 (New iPad) HD Video(*.mp4)" as output. For example, to play DVD on iPad 3, 720*480 video size is enough due to the dvd movies' native resolution.

Tips - You can click "settings" button to set the video/audio parameters such as adjust video and audio birate, resolution, frame rate etc. The only thing to keep in mind is that the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step 3. After everything is done, start the conversion from Blu-ray, DVD and 1080p/720p Video to iPad 3 video.

Step 4. When the conversion complets, you can transfer the converted local movies to new iPad 3 via iTunes, here's the way to go:

1) Launch the iTunes and connect iPad 3 to PC.

2) Choose "File – > Add File to Library…" (Learn: how to add local movies to iTunes)

3) Drag the .mp4 file you want to the iPad icon.

So there you have it. Pretty simple.
