Thread: How To: DVD to iPhone

  1. #1
    Default How To: DVD to iPhone
    Heres quick tutorial on how to do this... I know many have been posted before, but I like this 'free' method

    Things you need before we start.
    1. handbrake for windows [download] http://handbrake.m0k.org/
    2. dvd43 [download]
    3. a dvd you want to watch on your iphone (almost any dvd should work)

    ** install both handbrake and dvd43 before continuing **

    STEP 1
    Make sure DVD43 is running, you can tell by a smiley face in your system tray. It may be yellow or green.

    STEP 2
    Insert the dvd you select. (ones you own please )

    STEP 3
    Start Handbrake

    STEP 4
    Select the DVD Source : it should be your DVD drive

    ** it will say "Reading DVD..." leave the screen open, it will close itself **

    STEP 5

    DVD TItle: Automatic
    DVD Chapters: Automatic
    Destination: c (change to where ever you want) - This is where the mp4 will be stored once its completed, you will also need to select a file name.
    Encoder: H.264 (ipod)
    Audio Encoder: AAC
    Width/Height: (i leave blank)

    ** you can play around with the other settings, but this is all i need to get it done **


    STEP 6

    Press the Encode Video button (bottom right corner)

    ** this will open up a cmd window in your start menu bar, make sure you look for it, it will give you the time remaining on the encoding **
    Thats it, and your done! copy that to itunes and all your videos can now be in your iphone or ipod for that matter.

    If your wondering what DVD43 is for, its an on the fly dvd decrypter which can remove some protection the disk may have.

    You can also use AnyDVD for decrypting and CloneDVD Mobile for ripping the movies. Choose the "iPod Gen. 5" settings! Works great for me! They both come with a free 21 day trial where you have full access to all the features.

    Does it come out in one file? I used dvdshrink and it was broken up to 30 minute pieces.

    With CloneDVD Mobile, you have the option of one file or a separate file for each chapter. I choose one file. You can pause the movie, navigate to another phone function and return to the movie at the same point where you paused it.

    Make sure you use the 'iPhone' setting under PRESETS

    WOW! this does such a better job at encoding. I made a 41min clip with videora and it was ~600MB. I made one with handbrake, took half the time and was the same quality but only 200MB. Handbrake is wayyyyyy better!

    Make sure you use the preset for iPhone and save it as a m4v NOT a mp4

    I am experimenting with bitrates and such to see what size i can get the videos. My goal right now is to get between 150-200MB for a prison break 2 episode which is about 41min. Quality on the 960 bit rate is amazing but its about 328MB which takes up space fast and I think I can still get a good quality with a lower bit rate. We'll see. Ill post back when I find out.
