How to rip DVD to MP4 for Playback on iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3, Zune, etc.?

Hi, guys and girls, are you looking for an all-in-one and professional DVD ripper? Do you want to store your DVDs onto your external hard drive which not only allow you to free up space in the cupboard but also let anyone watch the videos on [b]iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3, Zune,[/b] etc.?

As we know, not all videos can be played on [b]iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3,[/b] etc. so we need a third party to rip DVDs to the video format acceptable to them without any loss of sound/ image quality.
Okay, [b]Moyea DVD Ripper[/b] must be your best choice. This program [b]not only[/b] can easily and fastly rip any DVDs to other popular video formats with excellent output quality [b]but also[/b] can edit the DVD file for great enjoyment.

Here I will devide the guide into two big parts to help you solve all the problem according to my own experience.
[b]Part one: Rip DVDs to MP4 acceptable to iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3, Zune, etc.[/b]

Step 1. Download and install this program, [b]Moyea DVD Ripper[/b]

[b]Step 2. Add the DVD file onto the program by clicking “DVD Rom”, “DVD Folder” or “IFO/ISO” button.[/b]

[b]Step 3. Select output settings and the destination folder.[/b]
After the DVD file downloaded, we can start to set output settings.

2. Set the video and audio parameter, like [b]codec built-in, bitrate, frame rate, channel.[/b]
3. Name each title/chapter and select the suitable subtitle and audio track for the title/chapter as we want.
In addition, we can combine several DVD files together to enjoy them without any interruption via checking the opinion on the main interface [b]“Merge into one file ”[/b]

[b]Step 4. Edit the DVDs[/b]
After clicking [b]“Edit”[/b], we can use the crop function to cut off the letterboxed or the black edge of the DVDs, or use trim function to trim the DVDs to meet our need, or adjust [b]the aspect ratio[/b] of the DVDs for great enjoyment on a [b]big screen[/b] workable to [b]iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3,[/b] etc.

[b]Part two: Transfer the converted video file to iPod, iPhone, PSP, PS3, Zune, etc.[/b]
Connect the converted video with Computer via a USB cable and then copy it on your device.
If you need more detailed guide, I will take iPod for example to demonstrate the concrete steps.

2.Connect [b]iPod[/b] with PC and open iTune, the software will automatically recognize the connected [b]iPod[/b].
