It's very convenient for us to take and watch movies on portable device like iPad, Android tablet or smartphone etc. when we're on the road or a trip. However, due to the storage limitations, we can only take several movies with us. What if we want to take bundles of DVD movies with us? But we have so many movies that 16GB even 32GB may be not enough, so how to solve it? Don't fret! You've come the right place. Check it out:

A great way is to upload the DVD movies to your Dropbox and then transfer them to your Android, iPad, iPhone, and other portable tablets or smartphones for playback. Dropbox is a mobile document and media storage tool that allows you to sync your files online for backup. It can play three types of movie files on your kindle fire hd: MOV, M4V, and MP4. Converting your DVD movie to store on Dropbox can be done using a DVD Ripper. Once you get them into the correct format, you can enjoy them anywhere with your tablet and smartphone without worrying about the storage. Below is how.

To be honest, I've had success using the DVD Converter to rip my DVD discs to a playable format by Dropbox and Kindle Fire HD. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too. The encoding speed is faster and the conversion time is half that in other. Just download it and follow the guide below to convert DVD to MP4 files for Dropbox in just a few clicks!

How to Rip DVDs for Dropbox

The quick start guide below uses DVD Ripper Windows(Windows 8 included) screenshots. The way to rip DVD movies to Dropbox on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system.

Step 1: Add DVD movies

Add your DVD files by clicking the "DVD disc" icon and selecting the DVD files you want to rip from your computer's hard drive. ISO image files and IFO files are also supported. After the DVD files are loaded, you can preview them on the right viewing window and take snapshots of your favorite movie scene.

Step 2: Choose MP4 as the output video format

Basically the "Common Video" >> "H.264 Video (*.mp4)" is an universal format for Android tablets and smartphones. There are optimized format for Galaxy Tab, iPad (iPad Mini, iPad 3 included), Xoom, iPhone, Kindle Fire HD, Nook Tablet, HP Touch Pad, Acer Iconia Tab, Eee Pad Transformer etc.

Tip: You can also click "Settings" to change the video encoder, frame rate, resolution, etc. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means itrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step 3: Start the conversion

When you are satisfied with all the settings, you can click "Convert" and let the software do the DVD to MP4 conversion. After the ripping, you can click "Open" to locate the converted MP4 video files and transfer them to Dropbox for streaming. Now you're free to take bundles of your DVD discs with your iPad, Android tablet or smartphone and more anywhere. Enjoy!

If your movie isn't already in one of the supported formats or it's still on a DVD or a Blu-ray, you can get the Video Converter Ultimate (or the iMedia Converter Mac)which can help you rip Blu-ray/DVD, and convert various formats of 720p/1080p HD videos in MKV, AVI, TiVo, VOB, MPG, MTS, etc. to your tablets/phones for smoothly playing.
