How to Convert a DVD to Ipod MP4 Video
First, before you get started get all your equipment ready. You will need a blank DVD, USB Port on your computer, USB Cable that will extend to your USB on the computer and so forth. Make sure you have downloaded all software necessary to perform all actions on your Ipod.
You can convert DVD to Ipod MP4 players, or else convert any MPEG, AVI, 3GP, WMV, or DivX files onto a Ipod. The Internet has made available all types of converting software that makes it easier to convert files. You also have software that comes with your new gadget; therefore, it may have the necessary tools you will need to convert. Most times this is not true, since additional converting software’s are sold separate.
To get started you will need to download the correct suites. One of the most recommended is the Xilisoft DVD Ipod Suites. Once you have completed the download process you will need to run your DVD in order to convert it to your Ipod. At what time you download the software, take care to following the steps processing instructions carefully to make sure you load onto the computer properly.
Loading the DVD
Now, you will need to load up your DVD and then select ADD the DVD to your Folder. You will see this in the Files Menus. You can also click the DVD tab, select DVD-Rom, and then press Ok.
Highlighting the Videos
If you want to convert the entire DVD highlight the entire program, or else select chapters from the movie you want to convert. Now you will press the “Show Chapters” tab at the Interface area. This will help you find all the files you are searching for to convert.
Highlighting Files for Conversion
Now we are going to highlight the files you want to convert. In Profiles, you will select the targeted output format, and here you will see a combination box at the interface area. You will now select the format, which ever you choose (for example MPEG, AVI, WMV, DivX, etc) and the process of formatting will take place.
Selecting a Format for Output
Once you have finished this process you will now select output formats at the right of the column, which will show a standard format. Here you can select the video Rit-rates or use the defaults. Personally, I prefer using the defaults since you can’t go wrong often by doing so.
Choosing the Folders and Browsing the Tabs
Now you need to choose the folder named output, and click on the browser tab. Then enter a path name into the destiny box. Now you will choose the file you wish to convert, by right clicking on the movie or chapters and then selecting “rip.” This will start the converting process.
Ready to Load onto IPOD
Once the converting is completed, you will now move your files over to the Ipod. You will need to press in the interface the Open tab.
Locating the Files and Sending to the Tunes
Locate the file in the destiny folder and copy it over to iTunes, or else drop and drag it into the program. You have now successfully completed the converting files onto your moped, whoops Ipod. If you need additional help, you might want to call in a pro. Anyway, as you can see you can transfer, or convert nearly any extension file over to your Ipod with ease. All Ipods come with software, which you will need to download before performing any actions on your computer.
