Getting movies onto an Android tablet is straight forward – just connect the Android slab to computer with USB and turn on massive USB storage on your device, and copy files between Android and your HDD. These movies, however, do not include your protected DVD and Blu-ray disc collections. Frequent travelers that enjoy watching movies on board tend to rip their DVDs to Android tab to take along with. The ripping process involves cracking copy-protections (CSS+ and region code) and reformatting the MPEG-2 streams into H.264 video that is optimized for specific Android tablet. Feel like giving it a shoot? Check below for the Top 5 Best DVD Ripper for Android Tablets 2012 – 2013.


1. Pavtube DVD Ripper


Pavtube DVD Ripper


Pavtube has an intuitive interface that is easier to start with. It gives very straight-forward 3-step operation: one-click load DVD, one-click set format, and one-click start ripping. Comparing with its competitors, Pavtube DVD Ripper supports more file types: DVD, VIDEO_TS structure, DVD ISO and IFO. The main reason we recommend it to Android user, however, is the impressive presets for Android tablets. In its profile list you can find almost all the Android tablets on market, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Acer Iconia tabs, Amazon Kindle Fire, Xoom, Toshiba Thrive, Google Nexus 10, Nook HD+, Transformer Prime, etc. And there are also optimized formats for iPad, BlackBerry PlayBook, etc. Apparently Pavtube software wins hands down on export format. Pavtube DVD Ripper is proved to be the best DVD ripper for Android tablets. Its developer Pavtube also released an advanced version- Blu-ray Ripper($49), which deals with both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

Price: $35 (Windows or Mac)



2. Magic DVD Ripper


Magic DVD Ripper


Magic DVD Ripper detects and imports DVD from optical drive automatically. If you have a DVD backup on hard drive, you can select and load the VIDEO_TS folder instead. Magic features adequate common video formats (MP4, AVI, WMV) for average users, but 32 presets are not sufficient for Android users, since there’s only 1 format for Android tablet - the Kindle Fire. As Galaxy Tab owner I would like to put DVD movies onto the 10.1’ tablet and I need a costumed format to ensure smooth playback on my device. Magic DVD Ripper failed to keep the original aspect ratio, and gave softer image. Magic DVD Ripper serves as a nice tool for copying and burning DVDs though.

Price: $35 (Windows or Mac)



3. DVDfab DVD Ripper


DVDfab DVD Ripper


DVDfab has a comfortable blue interface, but it is not user-intuitive as Pavtube when it comes to operation. DVDfab DVD Ripper is good for those who would like to have external subtitles and 2 audio languages (MKV only), or those who want to rip a DVD to iPad MP4 and MKV at one time- this app queues up your conversion tasks and it pops up settings/queue box each time a chapter is selected (this makes the operation kind of misleading). There’re some presets for Android smartphones and tablets, and you’re allowed to custom your own format to utilize the screen of your tab. Overall, DVDfab is a nice choice for ripping DVD to MP4/MKV with multi-streams.   

Price: $50 for one-year license (Windows or Mac)



4. WinX DVD Ripper


WinX DVD Ripper


WinX DVD Ripper seems smarter; you can whether load a DVD or a VIDEO_TS folder at the very start. However, the software failed to find the correct main movie when I did test with Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) DVD, all it finds are extra movie trailers (e.g. Ice Age 4 as it shows in below sceenshot). Anyway, you should not expect much to a free tool. WinX support quite a lot of formats(MP4, MPG, WMV, FLV, MOV), and luckily I managed to find Samsung Galaxy Tab format which works for my device. Are there any other formats for more Android tablets? Unfortunately the answer is NO. WinX DVD Ripper failed to recognize the main movie during above test, but it’s still a good choice for those who hang on to freeware.

Price: $0 (freeware)



5. Aiseesoft DVD Ripper


Aiseesoft DVD Ripper


The Aiseesoft DVD Ripper is a satisfactory application to use when you need to copy movie DVDs to computer, rip DVDs to videos or audios of any format so that you can enjoy them on your portable device like PSP, iPod, iPhone, iPad(iPad2), Zune, Blackberry, Creative Zen, Apple TV, Xbox, etc. The software does a good job working out the presets for popular Android smartphones (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung GALAXY Note 2), yet not so good in terms of Android tablets- still lacking of presets to specific Android tabs. This DVD converter comes with creative editing tools, so you can customize output movies by trimming, cropping, watermarking, etc.

Price: $35 (Windows or Mac)
