The Motorola Droid has a large and pretty screen that’s good for watching videos on the phone. And while other Android phones like the Behold II or Tattoo aren’t as big, they too can take advantage of Wondershare DVD Ripper Platinum ($39.99 USD). PC owners can use DVD Ripper to rip and convert their DVD’s into formats compatible with their phone. The converted files are optimized for each phone, so video made for a Tattoo will be different from video made for a G1.
DVD Ripper also edits video, so if you just want a segment of a film/television show DVD, use the timecodes to clip only that portion. I’ve recommended VLC as a way to record or edit DVD’s, but ripping is easier to use because it does not require real-time recording. It took me slightly more than an hour to convert more than 3-hours of video and compress it into strong quality .
Other key features include:
- Ability to rip protected or Content Scrambling System DVD’s
- Convert into various formats, including ripping audio tracks to MP3 and MP4A
- Trim video or audio, merge and split DVD chapters
- Capture freeze frames from movies
- Real-time preview prior to conversion
