How to Convert and Play DVD movies on Samsung Galaxy S4

    The Galaxy S4 handset steadily draws from the same design language as the S3, but takes almost every spec to an extreme -- the screen is larger (5 inches), the resolution greater (1080p), the battery capacity higher (2,600mAh), the processor faster (1.9GHz quad-core or 1.6GHz octa-core), and the rear-facing camera stuffed with more megapixels (13, to be exact). The Galaxy S 4's 5-inch 1080p HD screen definitely bring you an extraordinary movie watching experience.

    Step 2: Choose output profile for Galaxy S4. Here I recommend you "Samsung > Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4)" which is a format specially designed for Galaxy S3 but also works for the S4.


    If you like, you can click on Settings you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer.

    Once the conversion task is finished, you can click “Open” button to get the final output files for your Samsung Galaxy S4 and copy or sync the MP4 files to Samsung Galaxy S4 for enjoyment any where as you like. (For Galaxy S4 File transfer, refer to a guide here)
