Question How to rip/play HD Movies to Android Tablet??

Hello everyone.
I'm quite new to the world of tablet pcs and ripping movies. I recently purchased an Acer Iconia tablet running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).

In addition to basic internet/email tasks, I understand this tablet can play HD movies which would come in quite hand for my 5yr old during road trips.

My problem is, I don't know how to transfer blu rays or digital copies on to this tablet. I've already got an Asus external Blu Ray drive and a large collection of Blu Rays, some of which came with digital copies. The Iconia has a micro SD slot and I've got a 16GB micro SD card, so I can use that as well. Just not sure where to begin. Do I need to buy some $50 software like Pavtube or Foxreal? Or should I already be able to do this with the stuff I already have (like iTunes)? All my home PCs/laptops are running Windows 7. Sorry for the newb question and thanks in advance for all your input!

1. Get a USB Flash reader if you don't have a slot in your PC that you can slide your SD card into.
2. Download uTorrent.
3. Download any bluray/hd movies/tv shows you want from PirateBay.org.
4. Transfer files to SD card.
5. Enjoy.

Thanks for the info, Doug! I'll give this a shot. Any ideas on how to transfer existing blu rays (or digital copies)? or does utorrent pretty much make that a moot point? (Next dumb question... hypothetically of course... I assume downloading any copyrighted content is illegal?) If so, any good legal options?

Can I assume the digital copies are provided on the bluray discs you bought? If so just pop them into your PC (assuming you have a bluray drive) and then you should be able to extract the files to wherever you like. My guess is you don't have a bluray compatible drive and the solution to this would be some sort of pain in the ass procedure, when you could just easily use uTorrent.

Yeah it's illegal, but do you really care? I know I couldn't give two shits, especially if you already own the DVD. Why would you spend $20 on a bluray that you are just going to watch once or twice, when the option of simply downloading the digital file with one click and then transferring it to your tablet is free? And this way you can also watch TV shows without commercials.

If you want to be a goody-two-shoes then be my guest, but it's just hurting your wallet and enjoyment of your new tablet. With that said, I don't know of any legal options, Netflix maybe? If you do want to be a goody-two-shoes but still want to get the digital files (without feeling like you're stealing), then just buy the real DVDs and then download digital copies from torrents...or better yet donate the money you would've spent on the DVDs to starving children that could actually use it and download the digital copies anyway.

Thanks again for the info! I do have an external blu ray drive so I'll experiment sometime later this week. Sounds like utorrent is worth checking out as well.

In order to rip DVD to the Android Tablet, you need to have a DVD Ripper. As for which DVD Ripper you can have a try, TuneFab DVD Ripper is also an option if you want to monitor the session. This DVD to Tablet tutorial might help as well.

Download showbox.apk if the tablet has it's own data plan...it's like free Netflix. I use it more than anything nowadays.

Found a Mod Lite version on Mobilism...but now I've gotta download a proprietary video player as well because somehow the stock and ES File Manager video players aren't good enough? Nothing like having to install multiple apps to use one. Solving captchas too...

I don't know what Terrarium you're using but mine works perfectly well with MX Player or any Android player.

Or try Cartoon HD. It's easier to use and has a built in player, but lacks the content selection of Terrarium.

Another good one is MovieHD, but that one also forces you to install a player.

I installed VLC Player since it's one I've used in the past, just wish it could use the stock ayer on my Note 3. Nevertheless it's a nice app and I've been able to watch some shows that weren't listed on Showbox so I'm happy. Thanks.

Instead of converting DVDs to videos, nowadays I mostly buy videos from iTunes. It is at a cheap price. To play iTunes videos to tablets, you just need to convert the iTunes videos to a portable format such as MP4. You can give it a try.

Before you download any movies/shows/music make sure you are connected to a VPN.

You can download Windscribe for free. Free version gives you 10GB a month and it works pretty good.
