Movies enjoyment is one of the most common amusements when we take a long flight. Many flights have on-demand entertainment systems built in with stacks of TV and movie content, and even if they don’t, it’s easy to load up a tablet with a bunch of DVD rips and watch exactly what you want. The guide below shows you how to rip DVD movies off the disc and sync to the Sony Xperia Tablet S (or any other Android tablets).
To rip DVD means not only hack the protections, but also convert the original MPEG-2 contents to MPEG-4 or H.264 videos that are acceptable by the Android tablet. Encoding usually takes long time – could be hours – so it’s important to pick up a fast DVD ripper. Here we suggest you try the Pavtube DVD Ripper, which accelerates the ripping process 3-5 times faster by taking advantage of GPU encoding tech (Nvidia CUDA/AMD APP depends on the PC you use).
Quick Guide: Rip DVD to Sony Xperia Tablet S supported video
Step 1. Install the DVD ripper on your computer. Here, you’d better also install the profile patch to get Sony Xperia Tablet S preset.
Step 3. Run the software and load your DVD movies into this program. DVD discs, DVD ISO image or IFO files are all supported.
Step 4. Choose Sony Xperia Tablet S formats. Click on “Format” menu, choose “Android” category. You can easily find the profile “Android”>> “Sony Tablet S Video (*.mp4)” as follows.
Step 5. Start the DVD to MP4 conversion by clicking the big “Convert” button. When the process is done, press “Open” to find converted DVD video.
Now you can connect your Tablet S to computer via USB cable, and transfer the converted movie to Sony Xperia Tablet S for the upcoming holiday or business trip.
Tip: By default the DVD Ripper does not include subtitles in the converted movie. If you’d like to watch movies on Sony Xperia Tablet S with subtitles/captions, select the main movie and then set subtitle language from the drop-down box of “Subtitles”. Then the software would hard-code subtitles to generated movie.
