moviebox is quite all right, been using it for some time and I can recommend it to you if you are looking for other options. I have also been hearing a lot of good reviews about handbreak but yeah, I didn't try it myself.
I got the best and easy way for watching DVD movies on Nexus 7. Applied the easy-to-use dvd ripper for Nexus 7 that the poster recommended, I successfully ripped my dvd movies to nexus 7 with the best video resolution and frame rate and get full-screen playback.
Hanbrake is a good free one,but please keep mind that it only rip unprotected DVD. If you get the protected DVD to rip, I am afraid you have to try other DVD program like Leawo DVD ripper. It can rip DVD to a lot video foramts as your choice.You can try this one.
There are an awful lot of decent rippers and several free ones worth using. It really depends on what size & format you want to rip to and from. I assume you want to rip on a PC but play on the N7. ripping on a N7 even if possible would take a looooooong time.
I use FairUse Wizard. I will say there are a lot of options and it is very confusing at first, however if you experiment with it, it can give very good results. I encode my DVDs in a format and quality to be able to watch on any of my devices (Roku, ps3, PC, g-nex, n7, or ipad. I throw the file on my network drive and have the option to watch from anything. I have only tried handbrake and dvd catalyst and FairUse yields the best quality. The paid version encodes faster.
How do you put DVDs on the nexus 7, because when I put the DVD in my laptop, and then go on windows media player, it only comes up with stream. Also what is the movie playing format for the nexus 7 and how do you or what could you use to convert a DVD to play on the nexus 7? Thanks
