Default Rip and Compress DVDs to Android in 4GB with multi-track

Convert DVD to Multi-track MKV/MP4 under 4GB for Android Devices

Description: This article helps you rip DVD movies to Multi-track MKV files while keeping the output file within 4GB limitation for Android devices with SD cards which are FAT32 formatted.


I want to convert Blu-ray disc in mkv files with many audio and subtitles options for my new Nexus 5. I can't do it with the freeware I downloaded yesterday. Do you know anything can help? BTW, it would be better the software has the ability to compresses video size.


Put Blu-ray MKV files to Android devices? You must install a third-party media player on your Nexus 5 beforehand; otherwise most Android devices cannot recognize MKV videos. Anyway, as we all know that you cannot transfer or play a movie file over 4GB to Android tablets including Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7, Google Nexus 5, etc since these Android devices only recognize SD memory cards formatted in FAT 32 which limits a single file size less than 4GB. While a standard DVD disc with a 1-2 hour movie on it usually is around 7-8 GB, and when you attend to rip DVD to Multi-track MKV within 4GB limits, I believe below guide can do you a favor of finding an easy to do that.

First of all, search for the best DVD to Multi-track MKV converter, free download and install on your computer.

Now let's learn together how to encode DVD movies to Multi-track MKV within 4GB.

Step 1: Run the Multi-track DVD to MKV Converter, hit the "Load disc" button and successfully import your DVD from disc drive to the app.

Step 2: To extract more than one audio and subtitle track in saved MKV file, choose "Multi-track Video > Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.mkv)" as output format.

Step 3: Click the "Settings" icon on software UI, and you would see video part from original disc is not encoded by default. This helps back up DVD to MKV with lossless quality, but the created MKV files would be large size. To reduce output file size, tick off the "Encode" button, change Bitrate to 2500 and this program would compress your source DVD and export a Multi-track MKV within 4GB.

Tip: Switch to Audio and Subtitle tab, you can remove unwanted audio and subtitle track by un-checking the "Check" box.

Step 4: Back to software main UI, hit the big "Convert" button and start ripping DVD movie to MKV with multiple audio and subtitle tracks. After 40minutes to 1 hour, you will get a complete Multi-track MKV file by accessing to output folder. Now transfer the compressed 4GB MKV video to SD card and watch movies on your Android device.
