Things you gotta know when converting DVD to Galaxy Tab 10.1
On top of Galaxy Tab 7.0, Samsung has brought us the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is as thin as the iPad 2 and even lighter. It’s very nice to have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to play your favorite HD videos and view photos, as the tab boosts a 10.1-inch TFT display that operates at a resolution of 800 x 1280. Reviews indicate it is a powerful portable media player that supports universal codecs; however, MPEG-2 is not naturally supported by the 10.1 inch Galaxy tablet, which means you will not be able to watch DVD movies on Galaxy Tab 10.1, even if you hack protections and copy DVD to Galaxy Tab 10.1, cause DVD movies are MPEG-2 encoded .vob files.

Tips/Settings for ripping DVD to Galaxy Tab 10.1
Tip 1. Make full use of the 800 x 1280 display resolution. Let’s get back to step 3. After you set a format for DVD to Galaxy Tab 10.1 conversion, click “Settings” and set video “Size” to 1280 x 720 so as to get 720p video for Galaxy Tab 10.1. That brings best video viewing effect with the tab.
Tip 2. Save memory space by cutting down output file size. Likewise, click “Settings” in step 3. The secret to reduce file size is setting lower bitrate. E.g. When converting DVD Premonition to use the default settings of H.264 Video (*.mp4) format (1500kbps), the software generates a 1.75GB mp4 file. If I set bitrate down to 900kbps, the file size would be down to 686MB. One thing you should keep in mind is that when you downsize video bitrate, you lower video quality.
Tip 3. Save your settings for future use. If you’ve worked out best settings balance file size and video quality, you’re suggested to click “Save As” and save the settings as a custom format. The next time you can easily find this format in “Custom” template for DVD to Galaxy Tab 10.1 conversion.
