    Well, Google is your friend, but I'll help you just this once.

    First, it depends on what phone you have. But there are 2 steps: ripping and converting.

    To rip your movies, I would recomment DVD Decrypter. Go to Mode-ISO-Read, click where to save the file, then hit go. There are a FEW DVD's that wont work with that, so use DVD FAB Decrypter. Make sure to rip the movie 1:1, ie dont compress it here.

    To compress the movie, I recommend Handbrake. It's a little harder to learn at first, but allows GREAT control over quality, bitrate, and all kinds of other settings. Now, I cant tell you how to use this one yet til I know what phone you have.

    DVD Catalyst 3. It daes everything in one step. I was so impressed I bought it. I now have 10 full length movies on my X and every one is under 1gb, closer to half that. There are a llot of settings for different phones, and video settings and audio settings.

    With Ubuntu I use dvdRip to rip and transcode the DVD into an avi which is a lengthy process, then I convert the avi to .3gp with the following command:

    ffmpeg -i inputfile.avi -s qcif -vcodec h263 -acodec libfaac -ac 1 -ar 32000 -r 25 -ab 32 -y outputfile.3gp

    simply replace the 'inputfile.avi' and 'outputfile.3gp' with the file names you want.

    The options in the command are the best compromise for file size, video quality, and viewing (I tested with an skypephone which struggled with higher quality video).
    Expect a 800Mb avi to crunch down to around 100-170Mb as a 3gp.

    You will need to install the libfaac codecs, but google is your friend for finding out how to do that for what ever version of Ubuntu you are using.

    Hope this helps.

    p.s.isohunt have some good .3gp films!

    Depends on what you want as your final outcome. If you are looking to just get the movies to your phone, then I suggest Catalyst 3. Hands down the best i have used to transfer a movie straight to phone. It has many phones profile already programed into it. just selct phone and movie, and away you go. www.tools4movies.com


    Looking to create back up copies I would suggest dvdFab myself. Has been a work horse fore me.

    I'm using a mytouch slide. I rip the dvds to an iso using dvd shrink and then used dvd catalyst free and set it to the ipod classic setting. Worked perfectly. Ripped it to mp4 and I was able to watch it using the standard player. No other player download was necessary.

    Hope this helps someone out there.

    Same here, I think I paid $20 for it back then, but it's only $10 now. You can a;ways try the free version first.

    Did you read my post, the second one in this thread? I explain how to do it, with free software.

    You dont need a program. Just hook the phone to the computer as a disk drive, then open the DCIM folder where all your videos and pictures are stored. Copy them to your computer, then open them. They will most likely open with Media Player, which obviously is free.

    In the first few post-iPhone launch days, there seems to be a bit of an epidemic. Many technology sites, particularly the iPhone dedicated sites, don't seem to be able to get out of pre-launch mode. I thought I'd give it a shot. Instead of moving with the herd, and throwing up 15 posts today about what my iPhone looks like out of the box, or what some other guy's iPhone looks like in it's dock, or maybe what it looks like when I run down the street with my iPhone in it's bag - I thought I'd try to write something that might actually be useful to those of you who are now at home with your iPhones

    I use a free program called Dvd to Droid.
    It is a very simple process and I now have 3 movies on my phone.

    A quick google search found the resolution is 800x480, like most other android phones. The settings should be the same, mp4 container with an h264 baseline codec. I usually make my bitrate between 2000-3500. You can just convert a couple minutes of a movie to test the bitrate and file size before you convert the whole thing.

    You can try taping the DVDs to your phone :D

    Just use the programs listed on this thread to rip the DVD. Once you have done that, you can use Samsung KIES to convert the videos.

    Wow. I just downloaded the trial version of Catalyst 3+ and used it on a DVD. Copied the movie to my phone and it looks awesome! I'm going to buy it. It's so simple, even I could do it. :)

    Ok, bought the full version and now I have an awesome looking copy of Avatar on my Captivate. Very simple and easy. This will be handy for trips.

    Been using DVD Catalyst for a long time now. That was going to be my suggestion. Simple and great support.

    I've got to agree, just tried catalyst 4 (trial) on my Samsung Apollo 3 and it worked like a dream. If a 'techno virgin ' like myself can do it,anyone can:D

    Regards
