How to rip your personal DVDs

Windows XP


I got the idea for this tutorial from "fireraining". Ripping your personally owned DVDs and putting them onto the iPhone is very easy to do. You will need two programs: DVD Decrypter 3.5.4.0, and Videora iPhone Converter 2.25.





Install the DVD Decrypter.

iPhone



Install the Videora iPhone Converter.

iPhone




Start the DVD Decrypter and insert your DVD. Go to the "Mode" tab and select "IFO I".

iPhone



Go to the "Tools" tab and select "Settings...".

iPhone



Go to the "IFO Mode" tab, in the "Options" section go to the "File Splitting" drop down box and change it to "None". Click "OK" at the bottom of the window.

iPhone



Go to the "Stream Processing" tab and check the box for "Enable Stream Processing". Deselect all the check boxes except for the first video and first audio streams listed. Click the graphic/button with the DVD and the hard drive on it to decrypt your DVD.

iPhone





You'll get a status screen so you can keep track of the ripping process.

iPhone



You'll get a pop up and a tune to let you know the ripping succeeded. Close the DVD Decrypter.

iPhone



Start the Videora iPhone Converter. Go to the "Convert" tab.

iPhone



Click the "Current Conversion" tab. Then click the "One-Click Convert" button. This program will automatically convert the rip to 480 x 320 at 768 kbps with stereo audio at 128 kbps. It will use the H.264 codec.

iPhone



A pop up window will appear, navigate to where you stored your DVD rip at, click it and click the "Open" button.

iPhone



The converting will start immediately. The time remaining bar is at the top of the current window.

iPhone



When it finishes it will prompt you for where you would like to save the file and then it will load it into iTunes for you.

iPhone



Connect your iPhone. Go to the "Video" tab and in the "Movies" section, click the "Sync movies:" box and click the name of the movie you want to sync. Click "Apply".

iPhone



iTunes will give you status as it copies.

iPhone



When the sync is complete, click the disconnect button.

iPhone



On the iPhone click the iPod button and go to videos and enjoy your movie. Click the double arrow on the screen in the top right corner if the movie looks zoomed in too much. Sometimes the iPhone does this to fill the screen.
