iPad Profile: Different File Sizes?


I was wondering why the same DVD Fab iPad profile would generate different sized output files. My guess is that it’s dependent on the source material, but I also remember seeing that the iPad profile has a ‘fixed’ output size e.g. 859M for the iPad (original).

Any insight would be appreciated!

The output file size is the result of choices you make for video and audio encoding as well as the duration of the source material. Earlier versions of DVDFab did have a fixed output size option for some devices that had strict file size limits. The current version does not have this option for the iPad that I can find. By telling DVDFab that the only thing that matters is file size, you are saying you don’t really care about the video/audio quality and they can both suffer with a setting that force-fits everything to a specific size.
