How to rip, convert a DVD or Blu-ray to iPhone 5 for watching.

DVDs & Blu-rays carry most popular films and TV-shows today, so if you’re an iPhone 5 user and tired of buying video contents from iTunes which has too many restrictions (Free to strip DRM restriction from iTunes), you can rip the video from your own DVD & Blu-ray discs to play on your iPhone 5. This guide will describe how to rip/convert video on a DVD & Blu-ray disc to an iPhone 5 playable video format such as .M4V, .MP4, or .MOV.


Tools required:

  • Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper, a decent program on the market that can decrypt, convert all DVD & Blu-ray discs. You can use it to re-encode your own DVDs & Blu-rays to 1080p/720p H.264 encoded videos, 640 by 480 pixels MPEG-4 videos and 1280 by 720 pixels M-JPEG videos for iPhone 5 easily.
  • A Blu-ray drive. This will be a must if you want to rip Blu-rays to iPhone 5. If you just rip DVDs to iPhone 5, general computers can read DVD discs.
  • iTunes program and lots of storage space on your iPhone 5.


That's it. Just download Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper and install it to your computer, then you will be good to go.


Step 1: Select a Source

Insert a DVD or Blu-ray disc into computer. Open up Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper and click "" or "" icon to navigate to the DVD or BD Rom. When you’ve found it, select the DVD or Blu-ray title(s) and click the “Open” button. Aiseesoft should then load the title file(s) up quickly.



Step 2: Choose output file format and settings

Click “Profile” to expand the conversion profile. If the source is a Blu-ray, click “HD Video” option to choose the “HD H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Video (*.mp4)”. Next you need to decide how high (or low) you want the quality of your ripped content to be. In the Profile Settings Panel, you can adjust the “Resolution” to 1440*1080 pixels to get full HD output quality, or to 1280*720 pixels to toning it down to 720p movie. 720p is still HD, but takes up quite a bit less space.




If the source is a DVD, I suggest you to select a preset for iPhone as output file format directly by click “Apple iPhone” option on conversion profile.


Step 3: Start Ripping!

Once you get all your settings in Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper program ready, you can go ahead and hit the "" button to rip that Blu-ray or DVD. When the ripping process is done, connect your iPhone 5 to a USB port on your computer and open up iTunes program. Sync the ripped video contents to your iPhone 5. That’s it.
