    I just upgraded to the latest Handbrake v0.9.5.

    Downloaded latest version of VLC (per HandBrake requirement).

    Grabbed the presets from a post found on Xoomforums.com mentioning a file from a YouTube video.

    Xoom Forum post:
    HandBrake Video Converter

    YouTube Video (You can get the preset file here:


    Encoded a 111 minute movie from DVD. It took about 1 1/2 hours to complete. The file size is about 2.7 GBs.

    Copied the file to my Xoom with the Android File Transfer application using USB.

    The movie plays fantastic. The quality is superb. My first two movie attempts using NORMAL setting yielded about 1 GB file size, but the image quality wasn't nearly as good, but definitely acceptable.

    Remember to change the file suffix to "mp4" (Handbrake tries to save as m4v).

    I'll rattle off the presets that I see:
    [Video]
    Format: MP4
    Video Codec: h.264
    Framerate: Same as source
    Average Bitrate: 3500

    [Audio]
    Track: English (AC3) (5.1 ch)
    Codec: ACC (faac)
    MixDown: Dolby Pro Logic II
    SampleRate: Auto
    Bitrate: 128

    [Subtitles]
    None

    [Advanced]
    Reference Frames: 1
    Maximum B-Frames: 0
    Motion Estimation: Diamond
    Subpixel ME & Mode Decision: 6 RD


    Here the Advanced Option String:
    ref=1:bframes=0:subq=6:mixed-refs=0:weightb=0:8x8dct=0:cabac=0:weightp=0:me=dia

    Good luck! It shouldn't be this hard to watch videos on our tablets.

    Shame on ALL parties involved for punishing EVERYONE as the lowest common denominator.

    All DVDs ripped by me are DVDs I personally purchased and own.

    Here's a question for you. How do I actually get the movie file off of the DVD first? I'm assuming I have to pull it off the DVD first and place it on my desktop or somewhere before directing handbrake. No?

    I used this guide here and uploaded battle Los Angeles and true grit and its phenominal. Video is crisp and clean and the audio sounds wonderful on my Bose quietcomfort 3 headphones. Kind of a pain in the butt from start to finish but once its done its completely worth it.
