Q1: I purchased this for my 5 year-old nephew (we have guardianship of him) for Christmas this year. We paired it with the new Innotab 3S. He loves it!! It gets plenty loud enough for his bedroom. He enjoys listening to his mp3’s and watching the videos he has downloaded on his Innotab 3S. Well worth it to save on battery use. But is any way to get his favorite Blu-ray DVD movies with this Kids Table for freely playback without drive?
Q2: We got this along with the Innotab 3 for my son’s Christmas gift. He absolutely loves it. He always tries to put my tablet on the dock, and now he can do the same thing with his own tablet. The sound is great, and it doesn’t get too loud. Just enough for the kids. Great toy and a cool idea from Vtech. And there is a function- Wish List Maker which lets kids wirelessly explore hundreds of games, e-books, videos, music and more on VTech’s Learning Lodge and send their favorite picks right to mom or dad’s email. All is good but he find some videos are not supported by this tablet, then how to solve this issue and then we can view movies without boundary?
It is fun for watching movies on VTech InnoTab, but InnoTab 3S and InnoTab 3 only plays its preferred video stuff. MPEG-4 and H.264 are always the most compatible formats with InnoTab 3S and InnoTab 3.
What we need?
To transfer Blu-ray/DVD to VTech InnoTab 3S and InnoTab 3, the first step is to remove commercial Blu-ray discs and DVDs protection from film studio, and then do the conversion. After several trials, we recommended this InnoTab Video Converter Ultimate which is powerful in quick decrypting the protected discs within a few clicks. Also it’s capable of converting BD/DVD discs and various videos to 1080p/720p MP4 for VTech InnoTab 3S and InnoTab 3.
FYI: Its Mac version is renamed as iMedia Converter for Mac.
