It’s pretty easy to setup Home Sharing on your computer and iPhone 5 to have the device play local videos and songs wirelessly. But there’s a limitation when you use Home Sharing to stream videos to iPhone 5 from computer – it works with only iTunes videos and music while iTunes is quite picky with the formats it supports. AVI, WMV, MKV and various other video formats should be converted to MP4/M4V if you want to add them to iTunes and sync them to iPhone 5.
If you have third-party streaming media server like AirVideo installed, it is also possible to stream MKV and AVI videos to iPhone 5. But none current media streamer work with DVD ISO file. iPhone 5 Video Converters doesn’t convert DVD ISO file either. If you have DVD movies that you’d like to stream with iTunes or AirPlay, a DVD to iPhone 5 Ripper is what you need. With the app you may crack the DVD copy-protections and convert DVD video (mostly MPEG-2 encoded .VOB) into streaming media format H.264 .MP4.

Step 2. Select the main movie and then set desired audio& subtitles language.
Step 3. Select iPhone 5 video format from the drop-down profile list of “Format” bar.
Step 4. Press the big Convert button to start ripping DVD to iPhone 5 playable videos.
How to customize video quality and file size
The default presets works fine on iPhone 5, but you may want to custom the file size and video quality based on your iPhone 5 models. To adjust output file size/quality, press “Settings” button. In the Settings window, there are video and audio parameters.
To improve video quality, set a higher video bitrate.
To change maximum the iPad 5 screen resolution, set video size to 1920x1080.
To down-size/compress the movie, set smaller video bitrate (1500kbps for iPhone 16GB).
When DVD ISO movie is converted into H.264 video, you can add the movie to iTunes library and then stream to/sync to iPhone 5.
