Tips to Convert iPod Video MP4 from DVD?
Have you bought a brand new iPod and want to transfer some DVD videos into it? Are you going for a long holiday and want to carry some of your huge collection DVD videos with you to entertain yourself? You will soon find the iTunes that has come with the iPod is unable to convert the DVD video files (VOB) into some format that your iPod can understand. Therefore, you need a dvd to ipod converter software that will do the job for you.
There are other benefits of converting DVD videos to your iPod. Of course, you won’t like paying huge membership charge that has to be compensated to some websites to download the iPod compatible movies or other videos directly to your iPod. In my opinion, the best solution is to get a software that will convert the DVD videos directly to the iPod compatible format.
This software is categorized as ‘DVD Ripper’ as you are ripping the movie from its original source and converting it to iPod compatible format. The ‘How to do it yourself’ guide that comes with the software will tell you the process of ripping. Once you have converted the DVD files to the iPod compatible files, you need iTunes to transfer them to your iPod. The process is neither cumbersome, nor it takes much time to complete the entire process.
You may find several ‘DVD to iPod Converter’ software in the internet. Depending upon your budget and expertise, you may purchase any one. The following points have to be checked before purchasing the software. They should –
Have batch conversion facility.
Have multithreading and merger facility.
Have crop and trim function.
Conversion speed should be much faster than the normal playing speed.
Normal video customization features like brightness, contrast, video bit rate and resolution should be there.
It is better if the software can convert other formats of video like DAT, RM, MPEG, AVI, MOV, WMV, MP4, RMVB, ASF, 3GP etc to iPod compatible video formats.
Have fun with the recently converted DVD movies into your iPod.
