Even the DVD backups like DVD VOB files, DVD ISO image still can’t be played on Android devices due the incompatible format. So if you want to put some popular DVD movies such as The Martian, Spotlight, Zootopia onto your Galaxy Note 7, LG G5, HTC One M10, Galaxy J7, etc for viewing in the car trip, you have to extract Android supported video from DVD movies.

Copy DVD to Android

Considering the situation that DVD has unprotected and protected two kinds, the DVD ripping tool we choose can be various. For unprotected DVD discs, Handbrake seems to be the first choice since it is a free open souce. As for commercial DVDs, Pavtube ByteCopy will be the best selection to copy protected DVD to Android devices.

Step 3: Next, click the dropdown list next to “Title.” Select the title that matches the length of the movie. It’s possible you may have see more than one title with a similar length.

We will be using MP4 for this example. 


Step 4: If you didn’t set up a default destination folder, you’ll need to select one by clicking the “Browse” button. You can manually customize the output file name and change the output file extension to .mp4. 

Step 5: When you’ve finished any customizations you are ready to begin the conversion process. Click “Start.”A Command window will open and you can follow the process.
