How to Convert DVD movies for Android Tablet/Phone for viewing with MKV Player

Part I: Ripping DVD movies to MKV

1. Load DVD movies

Insert the DVD disc to your computer’s DVD-ROM and click the “Load Disc” button on top left to add the DVD movies you want to play on Android device. Note that you can also add regular DVD to rip. On the source pane, you can choose the DVD titles you’d like to rip.

2. Choose output video format

Click on the drop down list of “Format”, and then follow “Common Video”> “MKV(Matroska) Video (*.mkv)”. Also, this Blu-ray/dvd converter provides optimized formats for Samsung, Motorola, Acer, Asus, Sony, Toshiba, HTC, etc branded Android devices; choose a proper one as you need. Or depends on your device, you can choose a suitable video format from “Android” catalogue.

Tips: Profile Settings (Optional)

Pavtube DVD to MKV Converter allows users customizing the output file quality by clicking “Settings” button to adjust video and audio parameters including codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel. Please remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in bigger file size, and lower visible quality loss.

3. Rip DVD to MKV

After all necessary settings, click the “Convert” button on the main interface and the software will start converting DVD to MKV automatically. When the conversion is over, you can click “Open” to locate the ripped files and easilytransfer them to your Android device.

Part II: Installing MKV player for Android

Now start installing a top MKV player for easy and smooth playback converted mkv on Android devices. When comes to MKV players, here are some recommendations for you:

MX Player is one of the most popular video players on Android right now, it has a nicer interface and a few more configuration options, but requires a manual codec download to play certain videos (particularly those with DTS audio).
By far the simplest video player we tried was the VLC beta for Android. It played everything we threw at it with no codec installations required, and we were up and running with our videos in seconds. It was a tiny bit slower and buggier than other options, but it is in beta.
mVideoPlayer is a popular alternative with a beautiful, media center-like interface. Its big downside, however, is that it only supports formats that your phone natively supports. But again, if you’re converting your videos before syncing them anyways, it’s worth a look.

There are a ton of other options for you. But of everything we tested, we think the above players are most likely to fit just about anyone’s needs, you can check them out to see what’s right for you.

Now just enjoy DVD movies on Android Gadgets using MKV player in the car with high quality. Have fun!
