Many friends ask me how to put DVD movie and video on iPhone, so I took a few days to write a guide to teach you how to do that with freeware. Before we start the guide, here is something about iPhone supported video format that we should know: Video formats supported: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; H.264 video, up to 768 Kbps, 320 by 240 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 1.3 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats Mac user what you need is handbrake: http://handbrake.m0k.org/?page_id=8 Step1. Install handbrake and run it. The latest version is 0.8.5. In the “Source” section, click “browser” button to load the DVD file from your DVD-Rom or hard drive: Then click “Open”. Step2. You can select the desire audio and subtitle in the “Video Audio & Subtitle” section. If you don’t know much about video encoder, just leave it as original, the default setting works great. Because iPhone’s resolution is 480*320, DVD movie resolution is 720*480, if you want to customize the resolution; you can click “picture settings” to open the crop panel. Type in the value you want. Then click close to return to the main interface, click “Start” to rip the DVD to MP4. If handbrake didn’t help, you may try this DVD Ripper for Mac, here is its official website http://www.aimersoft.com/dvd-ripper-for-mac.html Windows user What you need is DVD Decrypter and Videora iPhone Converter, they are both free. DVD Decrypter: http://www.copy-hd-ripper.com/software/dvd-decrypter.html Videora iPhone Converter: http://www.videora.com/en-us/Converter/iPhone/ Part1. Rip DVD to computer: Step1. Install DVD Decrypter and run it, put your DVD disc into your DVD-Rom, Go to the Mode menu and select IFO I mode. This will give you access to two new tabs; Input & Stream Processing. Step2. Go to the Tools menu, select Settings, go to the IFO tab, then under Options, change File Splitting to none and press OK. Step3. Go to the main screen and click the Stream Processing tab. Enable it and only select the first video listed. Note that home encoded movies do not support subtitles of any kind and that your file can only have one type of audio. Then click “Decrypt” button to start ripping your DVD to hard drive. Part2. Convert the ripped DVD or video to MP4 for iPhone Step1. Install Videora iPhone Converter and run it. Step2. After you open Videora, click “Convert” tab, then select “Current Conversion” tab, click “One-Click Converter”, and load your video files. Then the conversion will start automatically. When you finish the conversion, Videora will add the converted video to iTunes library.
