Free use HandBrake 1.0.0 to Rip DVD to iPhone/iPad

Camille Wesley No Comments

Do you have some DVD movies that want to rip to your iPhone 7, iPad Pro watching on the go? Do you know how to copy DVD to iPad/iPhone? If you have a little experience on DVD ripping, you would know that with DVD Ripper, you can easily convert DVD to MP4 for iPhone and iPad. Among many DVD Ripping applications, Handbrake would be the most popular one.

So, here let’s teach you how to rip DVD to iPhone/iPad with Handbrake. Before start, you should know that Handbrake only can convert unprotected DVDs. If you want to rip protected commercial DVDs, you should install libdvdcss in Handbrake.

Download and install libdvdcss for Handbrake 1.0.0 on Windows/Mac

On Windows, you can download the Libdvdcss file separately (here for 32-bit systems and here for 64-bit systems), leave the filename as libdvdcss-2.dll, and put it in your Handbrake program folder (C:\Program Files\Handbrake).

If you’re on a Mac, download this file and double-click to install it. For Mac users who runs OS X El Capitan, there will be a few more steps to install libdvdcss on El Capitan. The main reason is that the SIP (Sytem Integrity Protection), a security feature on Mac OS X El Capitan is designed to protect critical system files and processes. Unfornately, SIP removes the libdvdcss file that Handbrake needs in order to work. You could disable SIP or use the following complicated way to install libdvdcss on El Capitan. 
1. Close Handbrake, and open a new Finder window. 
2. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /Library/SystemMigration/History 
3. Inside this folder should be a folder named “Migration-[random letters and numbers].” Open that folder and you’ll find “QuarantineRoot.” Open that folder, and you should see yourlibdvdcss.2.dylib file. 
4. Open a second Finder window. 
5. Type cmd+shift+G, and paste in this path: /usr/local/lib (If you get an error saying this folder doesn’t exist, go to /usr/local instead, create a new folder called “lib”m and open it. 
6. Drag and drop the libdvdcss.2.dylib file from the first window into the /usr/local/lib folder. You should be prompted for your admin password. Type that in and wait for the copy to finish.

MP4 Can’t be Played on iPads, Why?

Camille Wesley No Comments

Probably, people think that only DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray ISO, MKV can’t be played on iPads. You never thought that your MP4 files can’t be moved or played on iPad one day. But it indeed happened:

“I created a movie using Adobe Lightroom 3. It creates an MP4 video file. It plays in iTunes and all my other video players. However, when I try to synch to my iPad I am told that the file was not copied to my iPad because the file will not play on it.”

“Moved some local MP4 files to my iPad Pro but they cound’t be played. Strange.”

To make the issue clear, you should know which MP4 files are supported by iPad (including iPad Pro, iPad Air 3, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, etc):

iPads supports MP4 encoded with H.264/MPEG-4 with AAC-LC audio while MP4 video can be encoded with H.263, H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, XviD, MPEG-4, etc. So H.265 MP4, Xvid MP4 and other MP4 with iPads unsupported codec won’t be played on iPads. Even H.264/MPEG-4 MP4 with non-AAC audio can’t be streamed well on iPad. You maybe only have video but no sound or video and audio out of sync issue. When you can’t move MP4s to iPads or you can’t play MP4 on iPads but the MP4 files can be played on iTunes well, you can try the tips below:

1. You might want to try some simple stuff like restarting such.

2. To create an iPad version — go to File –> Create New Version –> Create iPad version.

3. Just Use VLC and drag’n Drop any kind of video files. >> See other iPad Video Players.

From time to time, your MP4 videos from HD torrent site or 4K source will be encoded with new H.265/HEVC codec or some old MP4 is XviD codec, the tips above seems to be useless. In this case, the following way will be the last try. It must be effective unless your iPad is broken. That is to re-encode any MP4 files to H.264/MPEG-4 MP4 with AAC audio using MP4 Video Converter for any iPad models: iPad Pro, iPad Air 3, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 1, iPad 4/3/2/1, etc. If you have “MP4 Can’t be Played on iPhone/Apple TV” issue, this way is also useful. Now lets’ start the solution.

Convert MP4 to iPads for Playing without any Hassle

Copy DVD to Exteral Hard Drive For Streaming on TV/Laptop/PC

Camille Wesley No Comments

No matter it is an expansive collection of DVDs or a lot of older DVDs sitting around in your house, copying these DVDs to an External Hard Drive would be a great way to streaming. Once made backups of your DVD collection to Exteral Hard Drive, you can stream your DVD movies on HD TV without using DVD Player and DVD discs, preventing from DVD disc scratching and damaging, and save the space on your cupboard. You can see many needs about the DVD to Exteral Hard Drive backup:

"I am trying to download some movies onto our external hard drive so that I can plug it into my laptop and watch movies on the plane. Can anyone help me with this and will it work?" – from tomshardware.com

" I’ve got hundreds of DVDs at my apartment but get tired of lugging them around so I wanted to get an external hard drive and just watch my movies Via that, plus I’ll have them all with me at the same time which will be cool. I’ve got zero experience with this sort of thing so was hoping I could just get a quick list of what I’ll need to accomplish this, I.e. programs, etc. All of these are store purchased and not burned DVDs if that makes a difference in what you have to use? Also how many movies could someone potentially store on a 1TB drive ?" – from .tomsguide.com

So just let’s start to copy DVD to Exteral Hard Drive For Streaming on TV/Laptop/PC/PS4/PS3, ETC.

Preparation

A DVD Ripping Tool – You can rip unprotected DVDs with Handbrake but for commercial DVDs, you have to turn to a professional DVD ripping tool to remove the copy protection. If you don’t mind all the DVD rips are MKV files, you can use MakeMKV. But I prefer Pavtube ByteCopy for its DVD (and Blu-ray) decryption power. It supports to decrypt AACS, BD+ up to v61 while MakeMKV only supports up to v60. And ByteCopy can 1:1 backup DVD movies, main title copy DVDs and convert DVD to lossless MKV, Multi-track MP4/AVI/MOV, SD/HD MKV, MP4, WMV, AVI, 3GP, 3D SBS MKV/MP4, H.265 MKV/MP4, 4K MP4, etc. For more functions, you can refer to its review.

DVD discs – It depends on what DVD ripping software you choose. If you choose Handbrake, your DVDs should be unprotected. If you are using ByteCopy, you can copy any DVD to External Hard Drive like the new released House Of Cards, Hannibal, The Walk, Spectre 007, The Martian, Game of Thrones Complete Seasons (1-6), etc.

A Computer – Note: If you are using a Mac, you shoulf use Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac.

Help You Play 2K and 4K MKV on Surface Book 2/1 with no limits

Camille Wesley No Comments

Cannot Play 2K/4K MKV Videos on Surface Book 2/1?

Microsoft is rumored to be releasing the Surface Book 2 in 2016 or 2017, which is likely to sport a 13.5-inch screen with 4K resolution support and its performance is said to be improved with better battery life and graphics support. However, it has been complained for incapability of playing 2K/4K MKV videos on Surface Book (2).

What programs would you guys recommend to play 4k and 2k mkv files on Surface Book? VLC is limping along with a ton of visual artifacts.

I hope there are 3rd party apps or driver updates for the Surface Book 2/1 to play more than just mp4 and avi format. Can’t believe it won’t play MKV out of the box.

When I click play now, the program indicates ‘now playing’. However, there is no sound or video playback. Does anyone know what this conflict is with Windows 10 Surface Book and my mkv videos?

Any Apps for Surface Book 2/1 that can play .mkv files smoothly?

– What is the best MKV file Media Player for Surface Book (2) in the Windows store?

Reason Why MKV can’t be played on Surface Book 2/1

MPEG-4, H.264, H.263, MEPG-2, VC-1, WMV 9 can be supported by Surface Book (2), but MKV, the Matroska Multimedia Container is a media format that can hold a number of video, audio and subtitle tracks in one single file, and serves as a popular format for storing movies or TV shows. It is not included in the Surface Book 2/1 supported video formats list, this is why MKV is not supported by Surface Book 2/1. Living up to the promise to provide native support of MKV codec in Windows 10, the inability to play MKV files without MKV codec on Surface Book 2/1 seems to remain there unchanged.

Which is the best way to play MKV files on Surface Book 2/1? We’ll see here.

Surface Book 2/1 can open MKV when getting the help from additional programs, like MKV player for Surface Book and MKV to Surface Book converter. Here, we will show you the best program to enable MKV playback on Surface Book 2/1, to help you play MKV files on Surface Book (2) tablets, including MKV files backed up from Blu-ray, downloaded online, received from others, etc.

Download Surface Book 2/1 MKV Player? No Hurry

When we have some MKV files for playing on Surface, going to Google Play and downloading an Surface Book MKV player seems to be the most direct way the majority could think of.

Option 1: PressPlay Video

Editor rating: 8.4| User rating: 7.5| Supported OS: Windows 8.1, Windows 10

Overviews: PressPlay Video is a free media player for Windows 8 providing the best experience for playing your local MKV and FLV files. It is a full featured Windows 8 MKV player that supports advanced touch, mouse and keyboard controls. Integrated with an explorer, it also displays the folders in your libraries, portable devices, HomeGroup and media servers.

Pros: Easy to use; play MKV/FLV videos side-by-side; remember playing position; advanced touch, mouse and keyboard controls.

Cons: Often start with an error message.

Option 2: DAPlayer

Editor rating: 8.5| User rating: 7.7| Supported OS: Windows 8/8.1/10/7, Mac OS

Overviews: DAPlayer is a sleek and powerful MKV player that comes with 400+ video and audio codecs, so that you can play almost any video on Windows 8/8.1 64 bit or 32 bit. Thanks to the support for high definition video, you are allowed to watch full HD 1080p MKV, AVCHD, H264 videos with this free MKV player for Windows 8. Besides, DAPlayer provides a wide selection of configuration options.

Pros: Play lots of video audio formats; support more than 400 built-in codecs; Complete setting menu.

Cons: The default skin is too dark to browse.

And unfortunately, there are only few apps that bolster MKV playback on Windows Store, excluding those paid ones. So we particularly compiled the best free MKV players for Windows 8, 8.1 64/32 bit.

There is no denying that it is a fix, but you need to figure out a few things before any further.

1. Installing an extra player on storage-limited Surface will take up precious memory footprint and may make your device run slower. Do you really need to use a special video player just to play a few MKV files on Surface Book 2/1?

2. Most players are not compatible with all video audio codecs. Even if a player is advertised to support for MKV file format, it may be unable to play all MKV files flawlessly. This is also why some people submitted posts online saying “Surface Book player play MKV with DTS without sound”, “Surface player play MKV with sound only, but in a black screen” or other similar questions.

Play MKV on Surface Book 2/1 Using MKV Converter

Apart from downloading MKV player on Surface Book, a video converter that can convert MKV files and others to Surface Book will be also a good solution. Besides MKV, you are likely to meet other formats incompatible with your Surface Book (2) and your player.

If you try to use HandBrake to free convert MKV to Surface Book (2), you will find there is no specific profile for Surface, since HandBrake is no more than a video transcoder freeware for Apple (and has few Android profiles).

To play 2K/4K video (.mkv) on Surface Book (2) tablet, there is another video tool that can do it for you. As one of the alternatives of Handbrake, Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate converts MKV to Surface Book 2/1 supported MPEG4, AVI or WMV video file in low, mid and high video resolutions, and it compress 2K/4K movie size to fit for Surface Hub. Only several mouse clicks are required: load downloaded 2K/4K movies -> select output profile for Surface Book -> hit “Start conversion” to begin compressing/converting -> once finished, simply transfer the compressed/converted movies to Surface Book.

Meanwhile, this tool also enables you to convert MKV to all popular mobile devices directly, like Surface Book 2/1, Surface RT, Surface Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 5/S7, iPhone SE/6S/6S Plus, Kindle Fire, Google Nexus, etc. In addition to help play MKV on Surface Book 2/1, it can also help play other incompatible videos like AVI, FLV, MOV on Surface Book 2/1 with no limits via converting.

Camille Wesley No Comments

4K (aka Ultra High Definition) video has over eight million pixels (3840 x 2160). It provides extremely clear picture, as it has four times more resolution than 1080p for example.

3. ALLPlayer 6.6

Similar to VLC media player, ALLPlayer is ideal for playing stubborn video files including 4K video that won’t play in your usual video player. It supports subtitles and plays just about anything and if it can’t play a file, it will try to download the appropriate codec from the ALLPlayer website.

And it has two USB 3.0 ports that gives you fast speed to transfer movies to Microsoft Surface Book.



Of course, as a tablet, even Microsoft Surface Book can give you better video enjoyment experience, it still can’t allow you play DVD movies directly. The reason is simple: Microsoft Surface Book doesn’t have DVD drive.

Movie enjoyment shouldn’t be limited at cinema and home. There are many occasions where you can watch a film or TV Show which you always have no time to enjoy before. For example, you can enjoy a episode of the Vampire Diaries with your iPad in the metro or make your children watch Home Alone with their Android tablet in the RV when you are tripping so that they won’t disturb you when you are driving. Moreover, you may record your loved TV Shows with TiVo, so you can watch the TiVo recordings on your iPad/Android tablet in the family trip on Sundays to get relaxed. 



However, although TiVo released its offical Android app to allow TiVo customers to use Android device to access TiVo shows via Wi-Fi, but that is restricted to enjoying TV recordings at home. So if you’re frequent traveler, a question may come up like this – How can you get TiVo recordings played on Android tablet on the go? On the other hand, if you are an iPad user, you still convert TiVo recordings to iPad acceptable format.

Part 1: Transfer TV recordings from TiVo to PC

First, you need to transfer the TiVo recordings to PC. Make sure your TiVo and computer are in the same home network, and follow this guide to proceed TiVo file transfer:

1.On your PC, launch TiVo Desktop for PC (click to download), the freeware that transfers shows from your networked TiVo box to your computer.

2.Click “Pick Recordings to Transfer.” A window showing your TiVo box’s “Now Playing” or “My Shows” list appears.



3.Highlight any title in the list to see more information about the show. Check the box next to the title of the show (or shows) you want to transfer.

4.Click “Start Transfer.” Transfer times vary, but may take as long as the show’s duration to complete the transfer.



Part 2: Convert TiVo recordings to iPad/Android Tablet

Step 1: Download and install TiVo converter (Mac version).

Step 2: Launch TiVo Converter, press “Option”icon first and enter TiVo Media Access Key to “Tivo” tab. Then hit the “Load file(s)”icon to import TiVo recorded videos to this TiVo converter. Since the app supports batch conversion so you can import more than one TiVo recordings at a time. 



Tip 1: How to find your Media Access Key on TiVo: Go to “TiVo Central” menu >> “Messages and Set Up” >> “Account and System Information”, and you will see your Media Access Key there.

Step 3: Click “Format” and select an output profile for your Android tablet/iPad. There are optimized presets for iPad,  Samsung, Kindle Fire HD, Google Nexus, Asus Transformer, Acer, Archos and more. Basically the “Common Video >> H.264 Video (*.mp4)” is an universal format for Android tablets and iPad.



Tip 2: To adjust video and audio parameters like codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, you could click on “Settings” button. Keep in mind that the file size and conversion quality is based more on bitrate than resolution (bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa). According to my experience, for watching videos on an Android phone or tablet, 720p with 1500~3000kbps (depends on what device you use) is just all right.

Step 4: Click Convert button to start TiVo recordings to iPad/Android tablet. The conversion process will take a while, and you’ll see an encoding progress bar. Once the process ends, you can locate the converted TiVo recordings in the output folder.

Finally, transfer the converted TiVo recordings to iPad/Android tablet. You can play the TiVo recordings on your tablet on the go or at home as you like now.
