Summary: Brorsoft's DVD Ripper has outputs for almost all the Android models, so you can start getting DVD movie library ready for your Android devices.


Watching DVD movies on DVD players at home has never been a problem for us. The question is, what if you’d like to enjoy your favorite DVD movies when on the road? Bringing several discs along tend to be inconvenient, not to mention they jump on the most crucial scenes and are prone to scratches. Now that Android-based devices have rocked into the mainstream, there’s an easy way taking DVD movies alongside, i.e., ripping DVD and putting movies onto your Android tablet or phone. The process is easier than you may think, here I would throw this quick tutorial up on how to transfer DVD movies to Android.

First of all, free download Brorsoft DVD to Android Converter

True to its name, the utility copies DVDs to your PC and converts them to Android-friendly formats. That's true of any number of rippers (including some freeware ones, as I'm sure a few users will take joy in pointing out), but Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Android is among the first developers to add support for almost all Android tablets and smartphones on market, Samsung Galaxy, Nook (HD/HD+) Tablet, Kindle Fire (HD), Asus Transformer (Prime/Infinity/Pad TF300), Toshiba, Acer, Xoom, Nabi, Google Nexus, HTC and more.

Overall, the program is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs. It can help you rip and convert all the DVD Discs even DVD iso/ifo image files. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too.

The software works like most other DVD rippers I’ve used. Pop in your disc, choose an output profile (H.264, MP4, or HD MP4) for your Android tablet/smartphone, and click Start. Then go get a cup of coffee (conversion takes time). Below is a detailed guide for you.

How to convert DVD movie to Android tablet/phone

Step 1: Add DVD movies

Start the excellent DVD to Android Converter and click DVD disc icon to load source DVD movies. If you have backup the entire DVD disc on hard drive, you can also click DVD Folder button to load the movie folder. As you can see, added files can be previewed on the right viewing window and you can take snapshots of the movie scenes you like freely.


Step 2. Choose output format.

Click "Format" bar, you can find many catergories. For example, if you wanna play DVD movies on your Android Tablet Asus Transformer Prime TF201, you can select “Android” > “ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Video(*.mp4)” as output format. For Google Nexus 7, just choose “Google Nexus 7 H.264 Video(*.mp4)”.


Step 3. Start the conversion

Click "Convert" button (on right bottom of the main interface) to start the conversion from DVD to h.264 mp4 for your Android device.

Some helpful features of the DVD to Android Converter:

a. Subtitles – Select the subtitle language you like from “Subtitles” options. Meanwhile, you are able to choose your master language of audio track from “Audio” option.

b. Settings – Click “Settings” button to set the video/audio parameters for HTC One X. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.


So there you have it. Pretty simple. When then conversion finishes, click “Open” to locate the ripped DVD files and transfer DVD movies to your Android tablet/phone for watching on the go.

Not an Android user? Converter also supports “common” video formats like MOV, M4V, MP4 and has presets for all the models of iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple TV, so you should be able to create files compatible with your iOS basd devices. Overall, If you want to convert DVD movies on Mac for playback on your Android OS, iOS and Windows RT/8 based device, Brorsoft DVD Ripper is undoubtedly the best choice.

Brorsoft also released an advanced version- Blu-ray Ripper, which deals with both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
