    I was just wondering if there is a way I can put DVDs I own an transfer them to my iPhone without buying them again thru iTunes? Any suggestions would be great thanks!

    One of the easiest ways is to convert the DVD using Handbrake to a .mp4 format. Then you merely sync it onto your phone. I've done it many many times.

    Handbrake is the way! Prepare for your mac to run hot while it encodes.

    I use Handbrake all the time, that combined with Toast. You'll be a burning machine. Either Handbrake or MakeMKV, that one is good.. better quality video if you ask me but much slower.

    PC or Mac?

    If you're on a Mac be sure to download VLC as well...Handbrake needs it to run:

    If you're on a PC...well, I don't know how that works.

    Just to confirm what everyone else has stated...

    Handbrake and VLC are needed. Make sure you if you get the 32-Bit VLC you get the 32-Bit Handbrake, if you get 64bit VLC, get 64Bit handbrake, etc.

    Recommended presets are The Apple Universal, iPhone or Apple TV2 preset and should convert it to .m4v format; identical to iTunes.

    If your not using a mac try this one. It converts then sends them straight into itunes.

    Been using it for ages now.

    Download the green tab not the red one.

    Also, just FYI, when converting your DVDs over to the MKV/.MP4 format you should know that this is primarily a CPU power hog. The faster your CPU, the faster the conversion. So while converting, just click "GO" and walk away and let it do its thing.
    I've see Intel i7 CPUs take about 15 minutes per DVD. I've also seen Core 2 Duo's take about 45 minutes or more. So it all depends on your setup.
    Don't have a Mac, so can't say how long. But the CPU should be the deciding factor.

    Don't forget to save to your desktop so you can easily drag it into iTunes before syncing with your phone.

    Make sure your phone has enough GB to store them :)
