Ripping HD-DVD collection into MP4 files for digital use?

Hello,

I have a significant HD-DVD collection that I don't use anymore because I usually watch movies on the go with an ipad or Android tablet, or once in a while with my laptop on my projector. What hardware and software combination would I need to rip my collection into MP4 files for full time digital use wherever I want?

TIA

I believe DVDFab's "Passkey" program still supports ripping HD-DVDs.
I think "Clown BD" still knows how to process a HD-DVD into something else.

I have a Toshiba HD-DVD Rom drive mounted in an external case - connected via USB to my tower computer.
Over the past week, I used Passkey to rip "For Love Of The Game", "Cat People" & "The Getaway" (1994 release) from HD-DVD.
Then ClownBD converted the movies to blu-ray, although they ended up too large for a single layer BD-R.
I used BDRB to delete unneeded audio tracks & shrink it to fit on a single layer BD-R as needed (BDRB set for best quality = very slow but great results).
I used Imgburn to burn to inkjet printable BD-R media (LG burner & Ritek 4x media).
Scanned the labels off my HD-DVDs & modified them to replace the HD-DVD logo with a Blu-Ray logo - and printed it on the BD-R
The process worked perfectly & the discs play fine - so these titles are backed up successfully in case my HD-DVD discs go bad.
I used self adhesive disc hubs mounted on the inside front cover of the HD-DVD cases to store the newly made BD-R backup discs.
