nabi Sync allows you to sync your nabi with your computer so that all of your content can be accessed on both your nabi and your computer. Before your road trip, simply sync your kid’s favorite movies and music on nabi, hand it to him or her, and drive peacefully to Grandma’s house. However, there are kinds of videos that nabi tablet does not play. For instance, DVD and Blu-ray movies can’t be copied to nabi because of copy protections. MKV files do not play on nabi as the MKV format is not naturally supported. Some MP4 files will not transfer to nabi because the files are over 4GB.
The Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate helps you out of all these problems by ripping and compressing DVD, Blu-ray, and 1080p/720p video of any format into nabi 2 supported MP4 files. With GPU encoding enabled, the encoding speed is not 3-5 times faster than ever. For those long car rides and the “Mommy, are we there yet?” moments, adding your movies into nabi library should be ideal. See how to put DVD, Blu-ray, 1080p/720p Video onto Nabi 2 with Video Converter Ultimate.
Note: The below guide uses Video Converter Ultimate for Windows screenshots, the way encoding movies to nabi on Mac is about the same. Just get the right version for your computer.
