Summary: Brorsoft's DVD Ripper has outputs for almost all the Android models, so you can start getting DVD movie library ready for your Android devices.

Watching DVD movies on DVD players at home has never been a problem for us. The question is, what if you’d like to enjoy your favorite DVD movies when on the road? Bringing several discs along tend to be inconvenient, not to mention they jump on the most crucial scenes and are prone to scratches. Now that Android-based devices have rocked into the mainstream, there’s an easy way taking DVD movies alongside, i.e., ripping DVD and putting movies onto your Android tablet or phone. The process is easier than you may think, here I would throw this quick tutorial up on how to transfer DVD movies to Android.

First of all, free download Brorsoft DVD to Android Converter

(Note: Click here for OS X 10.5)

True to its name, the utility copies DVDs to your PC and converts them to Android-friendly formats. That's true of any number of rippers (including some freeware ones, as I'm sure a few users will take joy in pointing out), but Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Android is among the first developers to add support for almost all Android tablets and smartphones on market, Samsung Galaxy, Nook (HD/HD+) Tablet, Kindle Fire (HD), Asus Transformer (Prime/Infinity/Pad TF300), Toshiba, Acer, Xoom, Nabi, Google Nexus, HTC and more.

Overall, the program is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs. It can help you rip and convert all the DVD Discs even DVD iso/ifo image files. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too.

The software works like most other DVD rippers I’ve used. Pop in your disc, choose an output profile (H.264, MP4, or HD MP4) for your Android tablet/smartphone, and click Start. Then go get a cup of coffee (conversion takes time). Below is a detailed guide for you.

How to convert DVD movie to Android tablet/phone

Step 1: Add DVD movies

Start the excellent DVD to Android Converter and click DVD disc icon to load source DVD movies. If you have backup the entire DVD disc on hard drive, you can also click DVD Folder button to load the movie folder. As you can see, added files can be previewed on the right viewing window and you can take snapshots of the movie scenes you like freely.

Step 2. Choose output format.

Click "Format" bar, you can find many catergories. For example, if you wanna play DVD movies on your Android Tablet Asus Transformer Prime TF201, you can select “Android” > “ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 Video(*.mp4)” as output format. For Google Nexus 7, just choose “Google Nexus 7 H.264 Video(*.mp4)”.

Step 3. Start the conversion

Click "Convert" button (on right bottom of the main interface) to start the conversion from DVD to h.264 mp4 for your Android device.

Some helpful features of the DVD to Android Converter:

a. Subtitles – Select the subtitle language you like from “Subtitles” options. Meanwhile, you are able to choose your master language of audio track from “Audio” option.

b. Settings – Click “Settings” button to set the video/audio parameters for HTC One X. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

So there you have it. Pretty simple. When then conversion finishes, click “Open” to locate the ripped DVD files and transfer DVD movies to your Android tablet/phone for watching on the go.

Not an Android user? Converter also supports “common” video formats like MOV, M4V, MP4 and has presets for all the models of iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple TV, so you should be able to create files compatible with your iOS basd devices. Overall, If you want to convert DVD movies on Mac for playback on your Android OS, iOS and Windows RT/8 based device, Brorsoft DVD Ripper is undoubtedly the best choice.

Brorsoft also released an advanced version- Blu-ray Ripper, which deals with both DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

Are you a Mac Mountain Lion 10.8 user? Having troubles when taking Canon MXF files to FCP X or FCP 7? As Apple Inc.’s desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers, OS X Mountain Lion (version 10.8) is the ninth major release of OS X. It’s quick, familiar, cheap, and drenched in iOS goodness. However, after updated and installed Mountain Lion on Mac, many Final Cut Pro (mainly FCP X and FCP 7) users found they could not import any MXF files into FCP anymore.

Q1: I use FCP 7 and my MXF file from Canon XF100 is shown as a package, not a folder. I tried to log and transfer the it to FCP but it did not work. I think FCP does not find the files. I also tryed to click myself to the files by right clicking the file and then opening the package with “show package contents”. Once I clicked myself to the actual .mts file I tried to drag it into the log and transfer window in FCP. But this did not work – I’m using OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

Q2: When I try importing my footage directly from the camera in the File/Import/Media... screen, FCP X tells me: "No Importable Files", "None of the selected files or folders can be imported." So, can MXF files be imported directly into FCP X or not? If so, what am I missing? I'm using Mac OS V10.8.

Q3: Help Please. I could't Log and Transfer my MXF clips from Canon C300 to FCP 7 after I installed mountain lion. Thank you very much.

If you have met the similar errors, you'd better go to Canon webesite and free download a Canon XF Utility for Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion to import your files to your computer and then access them from FCP. It took Canon forever to release an OS 10.8 update, but they did late last fall. If the pugin doesn't work for your FCP or videos, I advice you'd better transcode MXF to ProRes if you want a quick and easy importing workflow.

There are many apps for converting MXF files to ProRes mov for Mac Lion. You can go to Google and download a top one who can do the conversion with original video quality. I’m currently using Brorsoft MXF Converter for Mac, which can be used as professional MXF to FCP Converter on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8). I usually convert my files into apple prores 422(HQ) for working with fcp with original quality. Besides this, I also can change MXF to ProRes 4444, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy) and other video formats as you want. In fact, I tried several otheres but liked the brorsoft the best.

The software is easy-to-use, it works like most other Converters I’ve used. Drag and drop the .mxf files into it, choose one ProRes codec as output profile, just follow: Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov), and then start the conversion.

After the conversion, you can click “open” to find the conveted video. Then run your Final Cut Pro, click “File >Import >Filles” to directly get converted file to FCP without rendering. You also can directly drag and drop the generated file to FCP.

Are you planning to get one camcorder to both shoot AVCHD Progressive videos amd MP4 videos? If so I believe Sony Handycam HDR-CX380/B with only $449.99 is your best choice. It can easily capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD 60p/60i MTS video, 720p MP4 footage and 8.9MP photos with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. You can choose to record AVCHD format, which can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for uploading to YouTube for sharing.

However, if you have some MTS video from CX380/B and try to imput to Final Cut Pro, you are likely to get some incompatible errors. Do you know the reason? In fact, AVCHD is a great format for playing but not a comfortable format for editing with Mac softwares(Almost Mac softwares are designed to support MOV format). And as far as I know 1080 60p AVCHD Progressive ia a nonstandard format, we'd better upgrade FCP to FCP X 10.0.4 or above to natively edit it without anytrouble on Mac OS X.

To bring Sony CX380/B MTS clips into FCP (x) for further editing without error again, we advice you to reformat AVCHD to a compatible format, like ProRes, before importing and editing. If you have known ProRes MOV is the best suitable format, I believe you will decide to convert AVCHD to ProRes. Then choosing atop conver software for your HD video will be an important thing. I have been using the professional Mac MTS Converter to encode AVCHD .mts footage to ProRes 422 .mov with the best befitting settings. Below is the simple guide on fastly completing the transformation.

Step 1. Launch the software and click Add File icon to load your 1080p MTS file(s) to it.

Step 2. Click on the pull down menu of “Format” and select Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 as the output format.


Note: The five types of ProRes codecs are compatible for FCP 7/x, you can choose the best comfortable one according to your requirement. But ProRes 422 and ProRes 422 (HQ) codecs are incompatible for FCP 5/6.

Step 3. Press the “Settings” icon to freely set video resolution, frame rate, bitrate, etc freely. Since you got 1080 60p AVCHD file, you need to change the frame rate to 30fps for easy editing in FCP X.

Tip: If you want batch convert MTS files, please check the “Merge into one” box before starting the conversion.

Step 4. Click "Convert" button to transcode AVCHD to ProRes.

When the conversion is over, you can click "open" to get the converted video. Then you can easily get it to FCP 6/7/x for eaisly editing.

The Canon EOS-1D X Digital SLR Camera is designed with the pro shooter in mind, as evidenced by its tough magnesium alloy body, large 3.2" LCD, the Intelligent Viewfinder, and of course the 18.1Mp CMOS sensor, among other professional features. If you're looking for a tough rig that knows what a photographer wants and needs, then Canon answers the call with this impressive offering.

Thanks to its MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec, you will like watching its recorded Full HD 1080p files. However, if you want to get an better effect by importing to iMovie for further editing, you are likely to meet some incompatibel troubles. After testing, we find iMovie can smoothly edit native 1080p AIC MOV, but can't work well with H.264 MOV. H.264 is a highly compressed format and it takes tremendous amounts of PC power to natively edit it, so you should be able to import EOS-1D X 1080p video to iMovie, but you can't make it smooth for editing.

The best way is to transcode or convert H.264 files to lighter, or less compressed format before they work with it. Here we recommend the best H.264 MOV to iMovie Converter to you. You can reformat H.264 MOV and other videos to a compatible format for iMovie and other formats a you need. And the conversion can keep the original quality.

Step 1: Import MOV files to the video converter.
1) Before imputing the clips from Nikon D5200 to the converter, you should connect your camcorder with your computer via USB cable, or you can copy the entire folder of the video to your computer directly.
2) You can double click the each file to have a preview.If necessary, you can tick the Merge into one box to merge D5200 1080i MOV files together.

Step 2: Click on the dropdown menu of "Format" and then choose "iMovie/Final Cut Express", you will find "Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC)".

Step 3: Click Settings icon to adjust audio and video parameters. You can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the Profile Settings interface according to your demands and optimize the output file quality. You d better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080 to keep the best quality.

Note: If you wanna have a smaller file size but keep the good quality, you can decrease the audio or video bitrate.

Step 4: Start transcoding 1080p MOV to iMovie native format for editing via clicking the "Convert" button.

Once the H.264 to AIC conversion is over, you can click "open" to find the converted file and get it to iMovie for freely editing without any trouble.

Sony FS700 is a great 4k-capable E-mount camcorder. It has attracted many people's eyes. The camera will initially offer 1080p video, switchable between 50Hz and 60Hz frame rates (including 60p, 50p, 60i and 24p). A later upgrade will enable 4k capture and Raw output from its built-in 3G-SDI connector. It is also able to capture slow-motion footage, shooting at up to 960 fps at reduced resolution (240fps in Full HD). Plus, it offers built-in 2- and 4-stop ND filters (which can be combined), to allow lenses to be used at wide apertures in bright light.

However, there's no perfect thing. FS700 recorded video file (AVCHD/MTS/M2TS) is not FCP's native video format. It means that we have to use a third plugin or software to help us transcode and ingest FS700 footages to FCP. As far as I know, there are two ways to make the 4K camera HD clips editable on Mac. The first way is to use the Log and Transfer Plugin to encode AVCHD to a compatible format for editing in FCP. The second way is to use a Mac AVCHD Convert software to change AVCHD to ProRes for FCP.

I believe many people know the two ways and they all surpport to transcode 1080 60i, 24p footages. But you may don't know that L&G can't recognise 1080 60p files well, only FCP X 10.0.3 or above does it sometimes. To successfully edit FS700 recordings with Final Cut Pro 6/7/x, you'd better follow the second. Then I will share the detailed solution with you.

1) If you are FCP X users, please make sure you have installed the ProRes Codecs.
2) If you are FCP 6 or user, you should know the FCP 6 only has the two types of codecs: Apple ProRes 422 and ProRes 422(HQ).
3) Please free download and install the top AVCHD to ProRes Converter on your Mac OS X.

After the above tips are all ready, you can follow the below steps to converting AVCHD at once.


Step 1. Open the MTS Converter and load files from Sony FS700 to it.

Tip: If you want to join MTS videos into one file, please select "Merge into one" icon.

Step 2. Click "format" and find the "Final Cut Pro" menu. There are many video formats in the drop down menu, they are compatible MOV videos for FCP. You can choose one for FCP as you like. Then set the store path by clicking "browse".


1) You'd better choose "Apple ProRes 422(HQ)(*.mov) as the best output format, thus you can keep the original video quality.
2) To get a smaller file, please choose the ProRes 422(LT) codec.

Step 3. Before the fast conversion, you can click "Settings" to adjust the video/audio parameters, you also can choose the audio chnnels as 5.1 or stereo. You'd better set the video frame rate as 30fps, video size as 1920*1080.

Step 4. Start to change FS700 MTS for FCP on your Mac via clicking "Convert" button.

As soon as the AVCHD conversion is over, you will be able to put the converted video file to FCP for further editing without any trouble. Have a good tim!

Last year, Canon EOS C300 nad C300 PL have created a miracle. Now, Canon has taken its Cinema EOS lineup one step further with the new 4k EOS C500 (which comes in both EF and PL mount versions). It is similar to the EOS C300 digital cinema model that Canon introduced earlier this year. As you might recall, C500 is outfitted with a 4K-resolution sensor. Well, that sensor’s potential finds its full expression within these new C500 (Canon EF mount) and C500 PL (cine-style PL mount) models.

What makes the C500 extremely powerful is the way that it outputs full, 4096 x 2160-pixel 4K video. The 10-bit output pushes uncompressed 4K RAW data or a 2K RGB 4:4:4 signal through dual BNCs that support 3G-SDI. It also outputs 2K and 1920 x 1080 HD (12-bit or 10-bit, 4:4:4 RGB) component signals with frame rates up to 60p, or 2K and 1920 x 1080 HD (10-bit, 4:2:2 YCrCb) component signals up to 120p.

The recording media uses the advanced and popular compression MPEG-2 MXF format with Canon XF Codec as well as C300. If you try to put the Canon XF files to Final Cut Pro for editing, you will meet some troubles on your Mac. In fact, FCP 6, FCP 7, and FCP X all can't recognize the native Canon MXF movie because FCP is designed to work with QT files. So we have to transcode MXF to FCP video format firstly.

Then how to convert C500 MXF for FCP? Canon company may has made a XF Log and Transfer Plugin for the camcorder, but the plugin can't keep the original video quality and it is not easy to find. Here I will share an easier way to ingest C500 MXF footages to FCP (X)- Using a Canon XF Converter to encode MXF to ProRes 422 with original video quality. If you have on MXF convert app, you should better install the top MXF to FCP Converter to help you complete the conversion. Because the powerful Canon XF transfer tool is a friendly and easy-to-use app. I have been using it for a long time. And someone was always there to answer my questions and assist me with the converting process. I believe it will be your best choice.

Guide: Transfer and reformat Canon C500 XF video to RoRes for editing with FCP (X).


1. Open the MXF Converter on your Mac OS X and click "File" to add 1080p movies from the C500 CF card.

2. Click on "Format" bar and find the "Final Cut Pro", in the category, all video frmats are compatible for FCP. You can choose the codec as you want to convert to. Please notice that FCP 6 only has Apple Prores 422(*.mov) and Prores 422(HQ)(*.mov) codecs.


Apple ProRes 422– Higher quality than Apple ProRes 422 (LT)
Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)– Keep original video quality for editing in FCP.
Apple ProRes 422 (LT)– Get a smaller file sizes than Apple ProRes 422

3. Best video and audio settings:


4. After the above things are complete, you can click the "convert" to start transcoding Canon C500 MXF to ProRes.

As soon as the conversion is complete, you are able to directly drag and drop the converted video file to Final Cut Pro for further editing on Mac OS X.

Final Cut Express is a discontinued video editing software created by Apple Inc. It is the consumer version of Final Cut Pro and is designed for advanced editing of digital video as well as high-definition video, which is used by many amateur and professional videographers. Final Cut Express is considered a step above iMovie in terms of capabilities, but a step underneath Final Cut Pro and its suite of applications. As of June 21, 2011, FCE is discontinued, in favor of Final Cut Pro X. But many people are using FCE and they often meet some troubles about importing and editing to FCE (4).

As you know, AVCHD is not a good editing foramt, especially in 1080 60p (50p for PAL) AVCHD. As far as I know, 1080 60p AVCHD can't be edited with almost video editors including FCE, Final Cut Pro, iMovie due to its very high quality and had great compression. Then how to make 1080 60p AVCHD compatible for FCE 4? We have to encode AVCHD to the best format AIC for FCE. Log and Transfer can't surpport to transcode 1080 60p AVCHD for importing to FCE. You have to use a top AVCHD Converter to help you convert 1080 60p AVCHD to FCE video format. I have successfully used the professional AVCHD to AIC Converter for FCE to encode AVCHD to AIC for putting to FCE 4 smoothly saving rendering time. Below is the easy guide on trasncoding 1080 60p AVCHD to Final Cut Express on Mac OS X. You can follow it to have a try and you will get the perfect quality of converted video.


1. Run the powerful MTS/M2TS Converter on Mac. Then add 1080p 60p MTS file or files to the program.

2. Click “format” and move your pointer to “iMovie and Final Cut Express” Category and choose “Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov)” format.

3. Freely set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/25p/30p) by clicking “Settings”.

Trick: If your AVCHD file is 1080 50p, you'd better set the frame rate as 25p while 1080 60p for 30p.


4. Start converting 1080 60p AVCHD to AIC for FCE.

Now, you can smoothly get or put 1080 50p/60p MTS into FCE 4 for editing with best quality on Mac OS X.

iDevice in its widest sense, is an unofficial general term that can refer to any mobile electronic devices marketed by Apple Inc. that start with "i", such as the iPod, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad,[1] or more specifically any of their devices (sometimes then referred to as iOS devices) that use the iOS operating system, such as the Apple TV. As we know, Apple also developed FCP, iMoive and FCE. In fact, most Mac users like to edit their videos including AVCHD/MTS/M2TS recordings from Camcorders in FCP, because it allows users to log and transfer video onto a hard drive (internal or external), where it can be edited, processed, and output to a wide variety of formats.

Here, I will tell FCP X users some Tips on editing AVCHD on Mac OS X. Sometimes, if you import AVCHD to FCP X for editing, you will meet some trouble like warning due to unknow format. Please remember it: The best video format is Apple ProRes MOV for FCP. In this article, I will take Sony SLT-A65 as an example and share my easy way to copy Sony A65 MTS to FCP X without rendering.

You need a top third Software to help you convert Sony A65 MTS to ProRes for FCPX. I am using Brorsoft MTS to FCP Converter. Because it transcodes sony 1080p MTS/M2TS files to ProRes for FCP X more easily and quicker that other converters do keeping original video quality. Besides that, it is equipped with some simple but useful editing features, such as merging several videos into one file, deinterlacing the original footages, cropping video size, trimming video clips, adding special effects and text/image/video watermarks to output videos.

Guide: Tips on converting Sony A65 1080p AVCHD MTS to FCP X with best setting on Mac OS X.


Step1: Launch the best MTS Converter for FCP X and then click the adding button to import your AVCHD 1080p MTS/M2TS files. You can tick the box in front of the file you want to convert.

Tip: If you have multiple Sony SLT-A65 AVCHD 1080p MTS/M2TS files, you can select the “Merge into one” box.

Step 2: Click on the “Format” and get the dropdown menu, then move you pointer to “Final Cut Pro”. Here we recommend the Apple PreRes 422(HQ) if you give the priority to the quality of the converted videos. Then you can set the output folder by clicking “Browse” icon as you need.

a. If you want the files to be in smaller size, you can follow Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(LT)(*mov)/Apple ProRes 422(*mov) option.
b. If your files size is at SD levels, you are advised to choose Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(Proxy)(*mov), which is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings as well.

Step 3: Click the “Settings” icon and you will go into a new interface named “Profile Settings”. You can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface according to your needs and optimize the output file quality.
