How to rip Blu-ray and DVD movies to Motorola Droid with optimal settings?

Motorola Droid is a top pick among Verizon's smart phones. It's well made and the huge display makes you feel like you've got a mini computer. Android could use some help in the friendly multimedia department with desktop media syncing and more supported video playback formats, but with a little effort the Motorola Droid is a very good music player and portable video player. With an additional memory card, you can enjoy DVD and even Blu-ray movies on Motorola Droid, provided that the movies have been converted into MPEG4 or H.264 MP4 format first. Here I’d like to share with you a good way that ends up with optimal video conversion for your Motorola Droid.

Step 1. Run Blu-ray Motorola Droid ripper and import source movies.
Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is recommended as a best tool to help you complete the blu-ray and DVD to Motorola Droid conversion. Launch the app and here pops up an intuitive interface. Click “BD/DVD ROM”, and it takes a few seconds to load your Blu-Ray movie from target drive. When all the M2TS files are loaded to file list, check the main movie and leave the unwanted files unchecked. The main movie is distinguished by its length (duration). So check the longest Title. You could view it in preview window.

Step 2. Set audio track and subtitles for selected chapters.
You can select audio track and subtitle (if necessary) for blu-ray and DVD movie clips. Click on the Audio box and select an audio track with desired language. Set subtitles in the same way. There is a box of “Force Subtitles” too. When you set English as subtitle and check the box of “Force Subtitles”, the subtitle appears only when languages other than English are spoken. For example, in the movie Avatar, I select English subtitle and set Force Subtitles, the subtitle appears only when the Navi language is spoken.


Step 3. Set output format and A/V settings to fit for Motorola Droid.
Specify location for generated files in “Output” box and click on “Format” bar and follow follow “Android”> “Motorola Droid (X) MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)”. If you are using Motorola Droid X or Motorola Droid 2, the “Motorola Droid (X) H.264 Video (*.mp4)” is a better choice for you.

You can determine the file size by adjusting the video bit rate. If you prefer a smaller file size, just set the video bit rate down and it will still looks fine on screen. Basically, higher bit rate leads to bigger file size and better visual quality. You may select a bit rate from 800kbps to 2500kbps. The default video size is 480*320, you may set it to 854*480. The native resolution of the Droid screen is 850×480 so it will get you a video to display at full screen. Using these settings could give you a file that plays great on Motorola Droid. You may click "Save as" to save the format with your customized settings as a new format, and select the format in "Custom" tab at next run.
