Watch 1080p Blu-ray movie on Asus Transformer Prime from Mac

Despite lack of official support, you can use Blu-ray on the Mac and Android tablet- by ripping and backing up Blu-ray to Mac HDD into Android compatible format. If you have an ASUS Transformer Prime, the movie can even be played to an HDTV or monitor at full-screen up to 1080p HD through its Micro-HDMI port, or streamed to DLNA-compatible media players. All you need is a Mac Blu-ray Disc drive and a Blu-ray Ripper app that lets you compress Blu-ray into Asus Transformer Prime playable video format.

For those who plan to create a media library for streaming around the house, Pavtube Blu-ray to Transformer Prime Ripper for Mac should be a helpful tool, since the best Mac Blu-ray/DVD ripper cracks the copy-protections of commercial optical discs, and lets you rip DVDs and Blu-ray Discs to ASUS Transformer Prime(and iPad) supported H.263, H.264 and MPEG-4 video.

The easiest way to put/play Blu-ray movies on Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

Step 1. Click “Load BD/DVD” to load protected Blu-ray movie from external BD drive to top Blu-ray to Asus Transformer Prime Converter Mac (the drive comes with your Mac is DVD drive and you need a BD drive to read Blu-ray Disc).

Step 2. Check the main movie, which has longest duration. Uncheck all other chapters which are menus, ads and extras- ASUS Transformer Prime can’t play menus.

Step 3. Choose the video format for Eee Pad Transformer Prime playing in full screen. Here I recommend you Android > ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Video (*.mp4) ( to get this customed profile you should download and install a patch). This format is perfectly supported by Transformer Prime.

Below is the best format settings per my experience: (Click “Settings” button to set the video/audio parameters for the best Asus Transformer Prime movie format)

Codec- H.264
Resolution- 1280×720/1280×800 (HD)
Bitrate- 1500/2000kbps
Framerate- 30fps

Codec- AAC
Sampling rate- 44.1khz
Bitrate- 160kbps
Channel- stereo

The supported resolution of Asus Transformer Prime goes up to 1080p, though video playback and most apps never break out of 720p. For watching videos on the Android-based Tabelet, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right. I find that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step 4. Click “Convert” to start converting Blu-ray for ASUS Transformer Prime on Mac OS X Lion/Snow Leopard/Leopard.

Note: When importing Blu-ray to Mac Blu-ray Ripper you need to keep your Mac networked so as to access keys for hacking Blu-ray copy-protections.

Once the conversion completes, transfer/stream the converted Blu-ray video to Asus Transformer Prime. So there you have it. Pretty Simple! Now just play/watch 1080p Blu-ray movies on Asus Transformer Prime with high quality as you like.
