How to Convert DVD to Galaxy S?

Step I: Launch the DVD to Galaxy S Converter on your computer and select the video source

  1. 1. Launch DVD to Galaxy S Converter (figure 1)
  2. 2. In the menu on the profile, select the “Common video – MP4 Video (AVC)” preset (figure 1)
  3. 3. Select your video source by clicking “Load DVD” button (we used a DVD for our testing purposes)
  4. 4. Select destination for the file once it has been converted (both the .mp4 and .m4v extension work for the Galaxy S)

Step II: Adjust DVD Converter’s Video Settings

  1. 1. Set DVD to Galaxy S Converter’s encoding settings by clicking on the “Settings” (figure 2)
  2. 2. Set the Galaxy S Width and Height (the Galaxy S supports a maximum of 800?480 pixels)
  3. 3. Confirm the Video Codec is set as H.264 (x264)
  4. 4. Framerate (FPS) should be set to Same as source
  5. 5. Under Quality, select the Avg Bitrate (kbps) and change it to 1500

Adjust audio settings:

  1. 1. Set DVD to Galaxy S Converter’s audio settings
  2. 2. Confirm the Audio Codec is AAC (faac)
  3. 3. Mixdown should be set to Stereo
  4. 4. Change the Samplerate to 48000HZ
  5. 5. Change the Bitrate to 160

Step III: Save as a preset for future use

  1. 1. Click on the “Save as…” button
  2. 2. Enter Galaxy S in the dialog box and click OK
  3. 3. “Galaxy S” will now be saved as a preset and listed on the “Profile” menu to be used in the future

Step IV: Convert the video and copy to your Galaxy S

  1. 1. Click on the Start button in DVD to Galaxy S Converter
  2. 2. Once the conversion is done, mount your Galaxy S on to your computer via USB (figure 4)
  3. 3. Once mounted, create a folder named Video in the root folder on the Galaxy S
  4. 4. Copy converted file into the Video folder

That’s it! The converted video can now be played on your Galaxy S using the Gallery app. It should look fantastic on the Galaxy S’s screen as long as the original source was of good quality.

A few things to keep in mind when converting video:

  1. 1. The Galaxy S does not like video file sizes over 2GB (the settings in Step II should help insure that the file size is kept under 2GB)
  2. 2. Your converted video will only be as good as the source video
  3. 3. If your source is over 800?480, you must be sure to set the width and height to a maximum of 800?480 as noted in Step II
