Tip 1: The main title is checked by default and no need to re-select correct Blu-ray main movie. Don’t forget to choose one wanted audio track and subtitles from the drop-down list of “Audio” and “Subtitles” for your output Blu-ray movies.

Tip 2: If you would like to show subtitles only when actors are speaking a different language, Pavtube offers an option called “Forced subtitles” to enable you to do that. Just choose one main subtitle track from Subtitles menu e.g. English and click the “Forced subtitles”, you would find subtitles only show when a foreign language is speaking.

Step 2: Choose iPad Mini compatible output format

Now choose the output format for playback on your iPad Mini. You can get optimized video for iPad under iPad> iPad Mini HD Video (*.mp4). And choose the destination folder to save the converted videos.

Tips: you can click “Settings” to tweak the detailed video and audio encoding settings. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.
