I have lots of music DVDs which I would like to play on my iPad. However I cannot find a external DVD player to do so. Does one exist? I do not have a DVD player on my iMac only CD player. Is Apple doing this so I must repurchase the media via ITunes?
There is also zero support for any sort of attached player.
For your needs, buy a version from iTunes, subscribe to a service that allows you to stream those files, or if you want to break the encryption to alter the format, you need to look elsewhere for the how.
