    Yes. Once downloaded, simply drag it on to your iPhone if you manually manage, or sync it if not.

    Anything purchased in Itunes can be transfered to your iphone

    I do this quite a bit actually. I've even converted about half of my large DVD library to MP4 so that I can import them into iTunes and then load on the iPhone. Pretty handy.

    I rent movies from the red box machine for a buck and convert it into my iPhone. Cheapest way to go.

    Well seeing as you have no moral issue with stealing movies, the cheapest way is actually to just download them straight from the internet.

    with netflix you could do 3 movies in a day then wait 2 days to get three more, repeat as necessary...

    Paying something is better than nothing, no?

    Also when renting your paying for the right to watch the video, who says you can't watch it on your phone? Technically you could stream it to your phone from your dvd drive on your computer, same end result.

    Well, when you return the rented movie, if you also delete the file that you have made for your iPhone at the same time, you have stolen nothing. If that is what you meant then I apologise. But I assumed that after converting the movie you meant you would keep it.

    Please tell me where I said This was such a terrible thing. I was just correcting someone who said that the cheapest way to get movies was renting and converting them for $1.

    Same rationalization almost all criminals use not to mention class warfare dribble.

    What you are doing is against the law. I'm not arguing the ethics of it with you, I'm telling you straight up: It is illegal.

    It doesn't matter that you paid to rent the movie or that you don't plan on distributing the ripped file or exhibiting it for a fee. When you rip the movie from DVD on to your hard drive you have broken the terms of use agreement you entered into when you rented the movie as put forth by the copyright owner. Not to mention that your software which defeats the CSS encryption is also illegal.

    Again, I'm not arguing the moral issue with you. If you're gonna do it, that is just fine with me. But, don't pretend like you aren't doing anything wrong.

    Here, about some further reading: Let me google the DMCA for you.

    Here is the bottom line for me, I'm not costing the movie industry an revenue, because I paid for the rental. If I ripped it to my iPhone or streamed it to my iPhone over the 3g network it's the same thing.
