I have a question about video formats. I have an iPad 2 and a Sony Bravia KDL 810 TV. I have been ripping all of my DVD's (only ones that I own) and putting them on my NAS drive. I was wondering if there was a video format that will play on my iPad and the Sony TV. I really don't want to save the movie in two different formats and take up double the space.

Have you read the specs for your TV? I believe that it can play MPEG-4 which the iPad will play. But you might like to check the TV specs first.

You need H.264 (MPEG4) files to play on both devices without trouble.

H.264/MPEG-4 AVC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So H.264 is the same as MPEG4? On my ripper software that format is listed as "Apple TV-H.264." Why the Apple TV branding?

So would that be the best option to rip my movies to watch them on a 55" screen? Where can I find the other Codecs that are H.264?

Ah I get it. So I'm assuming it doesn't matter the size of the screen?
