“I have tried to rip Blu ray movie and convert to mp4 to transfer into my Samsung Galaxy note 2. I have ripped the movie for long time but the movie turn out very bad quality. Could you tell me what I should do to make the video better for my Samsung Galaxy Note 2?”
If you’re beginners that have no idea of Blu-ray format and ripping, reading through the following tips will give you a brief idea about the best way ripping Blu-ray to an Android device like Galaxy Note 2:
Tip 1. Blu-ray Discs are protected, and you can’t get them to computer hard drive until you use a Blu-ray ripper to hack the protections.
Tip 2. Blu-ray movies are HUGE in size. One single original Blu-ray movie can take up 20-40GB while there’s around 13GB user space only on your Galaxy Note 2, so it’s necessary to compress the Blu-ray movie to smaller file.
Tip 3. The original Blu-ray main movie could be one or several .m2ts streams. Since the M2TS format is not a supported format by Android OS, you need to convert the original Blu-ray video to MP4 or other format that is playable on Galaxy Note 2.
Tip 4. Pavtube Blu-ray ripper comes with both Galaxy Note II preset and flexible settings for you to custom the output video quality.
Part 1. A typical guide for ripping Blu-ray for Samsung Galaxy Note 2:
Step 1: Import 1080p Blu-ray movie to the Blu-ray ripper. Launch the software, click the disc-like button to load Blu-ray movie from BD drive (on Mac you need an external BD drive). Keep your computer networked.
Step 2. When the HD Blu-ray movie is loaded, you can select subtitles and audio track (English, French, German, Spanish…) for the main movie. Expand the BD folder to check the main movie (longest one).
Step 3. Set compatible format for ripping movie Blu-ray Disc to Galaxy Note 2 compatible videos. Click the “Format” bar, and choose “Samsung Galaxy Note (*.mp4)” under “Samsung” column. If you find the default preset does not work for your need, refer to the custom settings in part 3.
Step 4. Start ripping 1080p Blu-ray to Galaxy Note 2 playable videos. Click the “Convert” button at bottom right to get the Blu-ray Ripper started.
Part 2. Transfer ripped Blu-ray to Galaxy Note 2:
After conversion you can click the "Open" button to find the converted files. Now connect the Galaxy Note II to your computer and copy generated MP4 video to Galaxy Note II hard drive or its MicroSD card. Refer to below guides for details:
Part 3. “I’d like to make the video better for my Samsung Galaxy Note 2…”
This part is written to people who prefer higher quality and less compression. The Galaxy Note 2 plays 1080p video up to a high bitrate, however, due to the 4GB limitation of FAT32 file system (when using an SD card), it’s not recommended that you export video over 3.5GB.
How to improve the output file quality:
After you set the Galaxy Note preset, click on “Settings” and you’ll find the settings panel pops up as below:
Basically, higher bit rate leads to bigger file size and better visual quality. The default video bitrate is set at 1000kbps. You may set it up to 1500kbps - 2500kbps. The output information displays estimate output file size, just do not let the output size exceed 3.5GB.
