Default Handbrake settings for Galaxy S2

Hello.
I am trying to rip a dvd to my galaxy s2. I have tried many many different settings and none have worked. I am looking for the setting to put a dvd onto the s2 from handbrake. It just keeps saying unsupported file type. I have tried the videos on stock as well as qqplayer, mobo player and rockplayer and nothing has worked.
Id appreciate any tips

I have tried using mp4 output with the iPhone/iPod Touch preset. Can anyone tell me how they specifically succeeded?

That worked fine for me, all my videos are iphone format with mp4 handle instead of that mkv crap or whatever it is. is slight audio lag at times, but don't know if that is the phone or the preset.

I use iPhone settings, but in the main settings menu switch off 'use itunes friendly extension. This should then name your output as *.mp4. if not no panic, just once coded F2 the file and change extension to mp4 and it still works fine. Transfer over using Androexplorer so no Windows conversion done or sugested, and plays fine through the stock Gallery app.

Check out the lip sync issue here:
http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s2/327685-lip-sync-issue.html
It seems the problem is most clearly demonstrated with h264 streams in mp4 containers (which is the iphone profile you're using!)
Things are okay with h264 in mkv (xvid in mp4 also seems okay).

So I would recomend:
800 x 480 (I trim the picture, so it's full-screen)
mkv container
h264 video (any bit rate around 1000kbs)
aac audio (any bit rate around 100kbs)

The cool thing about the phone is it works really well with:
1280x720, mkv container, h264 high profile with AC3 audio
Which means you can use a single file for phone/HTPC/TV/computer too

I use "DVD Catalyst 4" , it can also convert download movie`s, it has over 1000 profiles and has a few for the S2 with different quality setting, and it`s only $9.95 and i think you can download a trial version to check it out.

I have no connection to the company, it`s just a great price when lots of other software is very expensive.

it has to be pretty good cos handbrake is free
I think the important thing to note is unlike other phones the sgs2 is hugely forgiving of the video formats.. so unless you try interlaced/mpeg video it seems to play fine
The only problem I have with handbrake is the edit/cut capabilities..

Is there a specific way to transfer the mp4 to the sd card? What I have been doing is physically putting the microsd into the computer and copy and pasting but is that the way it works?

Thats a lot of wear on you sdcard slot and backcover , why dont you connect you S2 to your notebook and just drop the mp4 on the external sd card , make a directory called movies.

Yes, putting it directly on the SD-card will work fine.

The only 'weird' thing to remember is that the Kies software wants to 're-encode' seemingly *anything* you drag onto the phone over usb.
So you can just say 'no' to that question when it asks.

Alternatively you can connect the phone in 'vanilla' usb mode by going to settings->Wireless and network->USB utilites
This connects the phone as a standard usb drive without the Kies 'helpfulness' ;-)

Also, if you check my posts I avoid mp4 as it seems to cause lip sync issues

One final thing.... Occasionally I will get unsupported file format from the media player and nothing fixes it until a reboot - after that the file plays perfectly.
So your phone might just need a reboot! :-)

There may be better ways to do it but this worked for me:

1) Use dvd decrypter or dvdfab to decrypt the dvd.
2) use dvd folder option as source.
3) for presets, select ipod legacy option
4) select mp4 file and web optimized. uncheck ipod 5g support.
5) for video setting, uncheck aspect ratio and use 720x480
6)Video codec H.264
7) Framerate: same as source
8) avg bit rate: 1500
9) audio: AAC
10) mixdown: auto
11) sample rate:48
12) bit rate: 160
13) go to preset menu, select new preset, enter preset namethen add
14) Go back to presets then select the preset name that you assigned
15) Just click start to proceed.

will there ever be a software invention that for layman like me ..i can easily rip a dvd and transfer over?
i read through these threads and cannot get half way thru. i get completely lost. i dont want to screw up my phone.

do you think there will ever be a software or app that does all this for you and in a couple clicks has your movie transferred over?

i get it..that all the techie people love this stuff. i love my gs2 but want an itunes type experience buying a movie or transferring over. the market even for movies ...is just for rent...and i dont want to pay that much money to rent. i would pay a bit more to own.
should i not be allowed in an easy way to take movies i own and rip them to another device to watch?
