If you have a tablet in hand, and want to watch your preferred Blu-ray movies on it but stuck by the Blu-ray incompatibility with tablet, you can convert Blu-ray to tablet compatible video formats. Now you have the idea of converting Blu-ray to tablet, but run out of solution. Don’t worry. You can find the solution on how to play Blu-ray movies on tablet after reading the post.

Part 1: Introduction to Tablet

With the existence of Tablet, we are able to bridge the gap between laptop and smartphone. Since Apple’s first iPad hit the market, scores of manufacturers have been trying to catch a slice of the tablet pie. Right now on the market, there are Apple’s iPad, Android tablets, and Windows tablets.

If you don’t have a tablet but consider buying one for yourself, you need to choose the operating system first. As is mentioned above, there are three major camps: Apple’s iPad, Android tablets, and Windows tablets. The operating system for each type varies. Generally speaking, the greatest strength of Apple’s iOS, the operating system on the iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad Pro tablet lines, is twofold: It’s very clean and intuitive, and the wide selection of iPad apps that you can buy right on your tablet work uniformly well with very few exceptions. Google’s Android mobile OS gives you a choice of hardware from several different manufacturers and offers maximum configurability, a top-notch notification system, fast and smooth Web browsing, and seamless integration with Google applications like Gmail, Google Maps, and Hangouts for video chat. Android also includes support for multiple user logins so you can share your tablet with a friend or family member, a useful feature that’s missing in Apple tablets (despite Apple’s Family Sharing, which isn’t the same thing). Windows 10 comes the closest to offering a traditional computing experience with full x86 support for all of your Windows software. And you can run the full version of Microsoft Office when you buy a Win 10 tablet. Also, connectivity options and hardware add-ons for Windows models are typically more plentiful than with other tablet types.


As Blu-ray format is not compatible with tablet, you need to turn Blu-ray to tablet compatible video formats if you want to watch Blu-ray movies on tablet. Therefore, it is necessary for us to know what formats are compatible with tablet.
