When converting DVD video to Mini iPad, you may set the bitrate to:
1. 400 - 600: If you just want to have a much smaller output file size and much faster converting speed without caring about the quality, this choice (like 640x480) is the one for you.
2. 700 - 900: This is the most compromising choice if you want to have high video quality, small output file size and fast converting speed. 1024 kbps is the default bitrate setting for iPad, iPad 2 and iPad mini (achieve the best balance between quality, speed and target file size). For iPad the best bitrate (video quality) balance is 1300 kbps with resolution 960x640. But considering the original DVD image size, 720x480 is an ideal choice to enjoy original video effect with proper file size.
3. 900 - 1200: If your concern is quality only, this setting will provide you optimum video quality. But the file size will be accordingly bigger and it will take a little longer to finish the conversion. 1024x768 is recommended for ideal quality.
