Next week I will fly from Munich to Miami. The idea is to watch my favorite movies on my galaxy S2 during the flight. In this howto, I will show you how to convert a DVD to the galaxy S2. Maybe you have googled and found a bunch of HowTow’s but most of them uses software which is not free. I will only use free software converters in my howto. Who wants to pay for a video converter if you get it for free out there?! This tutorial will show you an easy way to convert your favorite DVD movies.

The Galaxy S2 supports a huge number of formats like MPEG4, H.263, H.264, DivX, XviD, WMV, AVI, 3GP, Flash Video, MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, FLAC, WMA, WAV, AMR, OGG, MIDI to playback.

The little HowTo works for the following pad’s too.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N WiFi
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab WiFi
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab
  • iPad 2 Wi-Fi
  • iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G

Free video converter:

  • In this tutorial I use HandBrake a cool app. HandBrake is available for MAC, Windows, Linux…

After you have installed HandBrake please start the converter and configure it like I did.
