Samsung has always been successful in evoking interest in new devices launched as successors in this series and the S series stand out for video playback with large screen.

Galaxy S5 is the newest member of the Galaxy S family and Galaxy S5 is expected to have some impressive specifications. The device will have 5.1 inches Super AMOLED display having a pixel density of 432 pixels-per-inch and resolution of 1080-by-1920 pixels. It is a solid choice to play DVD videos on Galaxy S3, S4 and S5. This article will show you how to rip & covert DVD for Samsung Galaxy S series phones.

As we know, Galaxy S3, S4 and S5 doesn't have a built-in DVD-ROM or DVD player, which means you couldn't directly play DVD movies. Fortunately, there is an easy and fast way to convert and put DVD movies onto Galaxy S phones.

Seeing so many reviews, having tried many softwares, free or paid, I find Pavtube DVDAid is just such kind of easy-to-use program to help you do the conversion in a few clicks. Tried Handbrake – didn’t like it – tried DVD Fab – couldn’t get it to work. But Pavtube is easy to use and free water-marked version a great idea to check it worked. The Mac version is DVDAid for Mac.

If you have any requirements of outputting 3D (Anaglyph, T/P, SBS) or keeping multiple audio tracks/subtitles, you are suggested to try Pavtube ByteCop (Win/Mac).
