    HQ movies for the Droid?

    Anyone have any ideas for getting movies on the Droid? I tried DVD Catalyst with no luck what so ever. Anyway, I've changed over to Blu-ray and most of my DVDs are old, so, I'm trying to find newer movies for the moto-droid.

    I get most of my newer movies from here. Just download to desktop and transfer to sd card.

    What problems are you having? DVD Catalyst works great for me.

    First, please dont post links to warez sites. If you own the movie, we can talk, but I highly doubt you own a physical copy of Iron Man 2....

    Second, ripping BD is a challenge I wont go into. And the maximum resolution of the phone negates any advantages an HD movie might have.

    Finally, try Handbrake for ripping from DVDs you own.

    I use iskysoft converter, it converts to just about any format you want and it does a very good job, I have watched quite a few movies on my droid that way

    In order to rip Blurays that you own, you'd need AnyDVD-HD...then remux the movie m2ts with TSMuxer into a m2ts file that has only the desired audio stream, ...and then to convert the movie m2ts file to an H.264 encoded MP4 using...HandBrake, I'd also give my resounding thumbs up for Handbrake.... just don't output too high of a resolution.... the Droid cannot play the HD video at the full 1920 x 1080, 524 x 340 or so would be superb on the Droids screen ...IMHO

    What a pain in the A**! It just seems like it's a pain that other platforms don't share, to have all these "workarounds" to have a movie play on a phone is ridiculous, maybe the whole idea is. Why can't one just order and pay for the properly formatted movie for their device and watch it?

    It's the same movie formats that all Apple products use. I'm not sure where the workaround is....

    Handbrake looks to be for Mac only, maybe I'm wrong, but thats what I gather from their site. It seems to be expensive to rip a DVD that you have to have on hand. See, I've changed over to Blu-rays and most of the ones have digital copies with them and I think it would be nice to convert those to use in the Droid.

    Handbrake is open source and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac.... http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

    You're SOL on the digital copies...
