    Hey everyone, just wanted to drop by real quick and ask you all how do you put movies on your Iphone 3G? Do you have to buy the movies off of Itunes or can you D/L the ones you already have onto your phone. I have google searched this/Youtube searched but just cant find anything that helps me out. If someone could explain how to do this, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    This is what I do

    I rip my movies using Handbrake, then I will convert them to m4v format using Toast or Visual Hub.

    Handbrake has an iPhone preset. What do you use Toast and Visual Hub for?

    Ditto, Handbrake is the way to go. It's a one stop shop that is very easy. I have used it to put two movies on my iPhone so far.

    Handbrake + something to bypass copy protection (such as AnyDVD) is all you need.

    You need both (not saying it's OK to bypass copy protection) those applications is few and far between. Our IronMan dvd ripped just fine with just handbrake using the iPod HiRez and it was sync'd to my iPhone and iPod (I default iPod Hi-Rez cuz our movies are mainly put on our iPod)

    Wait how do you not find out how to do anything on google? I learned how to rip movies by using it. Been using Videora and its been great.

    Actually someone should sticky something about this, as it does get asked quite a bit (don't whine that its illegal, if you own the dvd/blu ray you should be able to have a copy of it, let alone some come with digital copies).

    Lol cool. I didn't know that and I admit I don't use Handbrake that much.

    I use PSP Video 9 from Red Kawa and it has worked really well for me. Pretty fast too...

    That's exactly what I'm about to do. Glad to hear it actually works. It's been a whole different phone since Orb was released.

    Handbrake is the one stop shop for DVD to iPhone transfers. I have loaded 40 movies so far into iTunes and select and sync what I want when I want. Great quality and super easy to use.

    I just got done ripping a dvd and it only shows up on itunes for only 18 mins for the whole movie. I made sure that it shows on handbrake for chapters 1 through 36 and the duration time shows for over an hour. What did I do wrong?

    handbrake is slow :/

    hi folks
    I have just downloaded handbrake. However for some odd reason it will only convert with 6 frames per second :/ it is a 2 hour long movie on a retail DVD. And it is using a 2.4ghz dual core processor. Does anyone have a solution?

    I use handbrake and it works very well. It does take a long time, though. Chapters can be confusing, but I have only run into issues when converting a DVD that I have already ripped onto my hard drive. If I convert directly from the DVD it seems to work fine.

    Anyone have any tips on how to convert MOV, AVI, windows media files to iPhone?

    iso and vob

    the program only takes .ISO and .vob files as far as I know. Is 6 hours normal for a movie?

    On average Handbrake cooks at 50 fps so an average movie of 90 minutes should be done in 45 minutes. I haven't had any problem with slow or incomplete transfer after 50 movies. You do have to use the setting for iPhone/IPod but the program does all the rest.
