Like I said I've not used that so can't help, and was going to say as I don't rip DVDs wouldn't know what to suggest either but did a quick search and found - Free DVD Ripper which might do for you.

Anyone know of an encoder that can monitor a folder and then AUTO convert. I used ipodifier but the developer seems to have stopped real support and it doesnt allow much in the way of adj to the settings?

That maks no sense. You are more liekly to have problems ith suepr than handbrake

handbrake is by far the easiest to use with the best results. It has a massive user base as well.

my personal preference is ripbot264

New to the board but been around awhile. Ive gotta say i have tried numerous converters and none of them work or are to complex for an average person. Snowfox, Catalyst, SUPER and so on. Is there ANY converter that is simple, allows you to take a .wmv from a digital copy and select a preset format to convert to work on a Moto Droid or a DROID X?call me simple or call me lazy but SUPER seems to be the best but it's like reading stereo instructions in chinese when youre from holland.

I use XVID4PSP version 5.0 r90

Best program I've found (and yes it is free) for doing x264 encoding.

Use the iPhone / iPod Touch profile but change the CRF from 21 to 20 and change the audio from 128kbps to 160kbps and play back quality is great and very smooth etc.

This is working on a Huawien Ascend M860 which isn't exactly very powerful.

I admit Handbrake is a good free one that can convert just about anything to MP4 and MKV. But just for MP4 and MKV and I think it's difficult to use. I'm using Enolsoft video converter right now. It's able to convert all videos between various formats easy to use. It can set up video/audio quality or other (resolution, bitrate, codec....) .Very becomes me.

Handbrake is not difficult to use at all. It can be used both by beginners and pros - this versatility with no cost is what makes it superior to any paid converters, including the Enolsoft video converter.

There are however other free converters that are also powerful in their own way. For example, I'll mention Xmedia Recode.

As you are new here, I will give you some advice. Please do a search. This has been answered MANY MANY times on here already. Look in the Droid X subforum, or here in the Media forum. I know I have personally answered this question dozens of times. And FYI, the steps are the same for ANY device. The only thing that's different is the resolution of your phone's screen.

Resolution - keep this max up to 800p, like 1280:800. You can also use 720p HD resolution, not a big difference.

For the rest you can use the settings I've put in Handbrake guide (link in my signature, see my first post in this topic).

There is more fine tuning available if you want, but these settings should be good enough for most users.

For optimal quality, make sure the output video resolution is the same as your phone's screen resolution.

MoboPlayer is not a converter. It is a universal video player that is able to decode many video formats.
However, there are videos that are too complex to decode for MoboPlayer. In this case, a video converter is needed to make the video playable for the phone.

I like using Free Video to Android Converter by DVDVideosoft. The GUI is very easy to use, and provides a number of containers to choose from for many Android devices.

You should always rip a DVD first to your HDD and then use whatever video converting software you wish to use (such as Handbrake etc.)

I always use "DVDFab HD Decrypter" which is FREE and can be downloaded from the following link:

DVDFab HD Decrypter. Free to Decrypt DVD and Blu-ray, free to Copy DVD and Blu-ray.

Actually this program can do a lot IF you pay for it BUT the DVD Ripping section is FREE and using it will do a straight rip (with no compression nor transcoding).

FairUse Wizard 2 will fix you right up Brice L. The free version creates 700 MB files that play well on My Galaxy S II. Which phone are you using?

I'm currently using total video converter.

I have tried using all types of resolutions and no matter what I try, I can't get it to fit fully on my android. The screen size either stretches vertically or horizontally.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I want to fit a video so that it displays full screen on my phone?

Thanks

The aspect ratio of your phone is probably not exactly 16x9 and so no film's aspect ratio will fit 100% BUT you should either see black on the top or bottom or black on the sides. It shouldn't stretch it or otherwise screw up the aspect ratio.

If you are looking to convert any video files and want to play it on your Android based then it is easily done. You can convert wmv , flv , you tube video files for an Android based operating system with the help of an Android video converter.

You can go and download Clone2Go Free Video Converter to help you. It can be used to convert video files to avi, mpg, flv, etc.


Besides, it features an easy-to-use YouTube downloader, which lets you download videos from YouTube as mp4, flv or 3gp files in a snap.

I'm sorry but for converting to Android or Google TV, I've got to give the nod to Freemake Video Converter. It has SEVERAL Android profiles from Google TV all the way down to basic Android phone screen resolutions

It also does away with having to deal with A GAZILLION profiles for A GAZILLION device manufacturers, makes & models out there as well. Basically put, IT SIMPLIFIES THINGS !!!!!

Best of all - IT IS FREE !!!!!

I use this program to encode videos for my DLNA servers & haven't run across a video it couldn't handle yet

I just have to share this.
I've tried several Video converters,(any video converter,xilisoft video converter)
And I found Snowfox Android Video Converter Pro to be the best I've used,
Because I was wanting to convert videos straight from iso files and video_ts files.
Both the others wouldn't.

Several No cost Android Movie Converters are available that provide you to turn video to android structure, so that you can make your video clips suitable with your android mobile phone. We have brief detailed five android video ripper tools that are totally able to obtain and very easy to use.

I see that the free 'n' easy apps are covered, so I'd like to offer up something for the more technical person who wants to have lots of settings "just so" when they transcode.

For ringtones and other audio, I use Audacity. It's FOSS and I find it very easy to use for getting sound clips out of longer recordings. For example, getting a good Homer Simpson "D'OH!" for computer events or the Underpants Gnomes song for a ringtone.

Most of my video comes from my TiVo DVRs in the proprietary encrypted TiVo file format. Although there are several free apps that use the DirectShow interface to get at the decrypted streams, I've found that VideoReDo makes a nice, inexpensive product that can be used to do everything from cleaning up MPEG stream errors, to editing the video, to mastering and burning onto disc, or saving in a variety of file formats. The thing that really makes this product shine is that it allows me to adjust more parameters (by far!) than any other editing or transcoding product, free or pay-for. The only thing it lacks is the capability to accelerate transcoding by using GPU engines.

For fast, CUDA-based transcoding, I use Movavi Video Suite. It's OK, but definitely falls short of being a professional grade tool. Fortunately its price reflects that.

Alive "VIdeo Converter" on a pc is not fast but very flexible output. I usually use "Magic DVDCopier". It supports a long cue of files and is very good. None of the software likes baby pcs thought. 4Gb ram and 4core at around 3Mz. is fine.

Im a master on this subject..

Vidcoder works great..it has a Handbrake front end gui
Handbrake...everyone knows that
Ripbot 264 of course
Megui..more complicated though
If you dont want to convert to MP4... just use Mk Player for other format play

I just read this entire thread, and would like to offer my two cents.

I have been converting videos for years from one format to another, for psp, ipod, Android, dvd playback, you name it, I've tried it. Here are my favorites for routers and converters:

RIPPERS:

IMO there is only one option: Handbrake, period.
If you look in the official handbrake forums you can find plenty of Android presets for download.

CONVERTERS:

1. Any Video Converter
- Simple to use, comes preloaded with Android preset.
-Any x264 presets will work on Android phones, for smaller file size, use the psp preset
- link: Free Video Converter| Any Video Converter Freeware| MP4 FLV 3GP AVI MKV DVD Android Html5

2. SGI's Video Converter GUI
-Comes loaded with presets
-Completely free, available from SourceForge
-link: SGI's Video Converter GUI | Free Audio & Video software downloads at SourceForge.net

Try em out, they are awesome.

Xilisoft is amazing, by far the best paid software available. There is a free converter that it's like a carbon copy of xilisoft, called iWisoft video converter. Comes with all the same functionality of xilisoft, and its freeware. Even has an edit option to add photo and text watermarks. You should check it out (the only drawback is its inability to totally control the encoding bitrate, but you can fix that with some XML editing).

If you have ever used xilisoft, you would know how awesome it would be to get it for free.

For anyone that uses DVD Catalyst..... Is there a way to add 2 parts of a movie together? I have Lotr extended edition dvds and they are 2 disks. I want them to be one file.
