    Ok I am wanting to put some movies on my phone, what is the best way of doing this. Is there anyway I could put a dvd that I own onto my phone or do I need to download the movie onto my computer? Could someone give me the directions on how to do this? Next I buy movies on my PS3 and save them onto my PS3 is there anyway to get those movies onto my phone? I am looking for some sort of directions to get these movies on to my phone. I would really like to take a dvd that I own and copy onto my phone. Would I need something special for this?

    It would help to know what phone you have, but yes, its easy to put dvds and videos on your phone. You need to convert the videos to mp4 h264 baseline codec, at the right resolution for your particular phone. I use Handbrake, its a free app and there are tons of guides on here on how to use it.

    Go into the sub-forum for your particular phone to see what resolution you need to convert the videos to, or do a search on here.

    I have the Motorola droid(1) So the handbrake will take me through the process. Is that in the market I can't find it.

    Its not an app, its software for your computer. The phone doesnt have enough power to edit video.

    It is illegal to put DVD's on your Android. That is why they put copy protection on DVD's.

    This is why I told you to come back on here when you grow up and understand the law. It is NOT illegal to put DVD's that YOU OWN onto your other devices. If you own the DVD, you can make AS MANY COPIES as you want, as long as YOU are the only one watching them. This includes making ndigital copies for your ipods/phones/media players. It IS illegal to make copies of dvd's and SHARE them with other people.
