Rip Blu-ray and DVD movies to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 for watching with best video quality

Have you ever thought of copying some of your Blu-ray titles onto the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire to make full use of 1920x1200 8.9" HD display? Like many other tablets, Kindle Fire HD 8.9 does not deliver native support for Blu-ray/DVD movies, so if you have the intension to watch Blu-ray or DVD movies on it, you need to convert the Blu-ray movie into a format compatible with your Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in advance.

Q1: How to convert DVD movies to Kindle Fire HD 8.9?

"I am taking a chance that perhaps someone can give me some feedback I am having with. When I convert my favorites Blu-ray and DVD movies to Kindle Fire HD compatible video format, here is my confusion, which one should I save to? Could you give me some advice?"

A1: From Kindle Fire HD official website we know that Kindle Fire HD video format supported are: MP4, 3GP, VP8(.webm), and my suggestion is H.264 MP4 since this is popular video type that you could play on many other portable devices and your local computer. If you have trouble with detailed operation, check this webpage, it tells you exactly how to convert DVD movies to your Kindle Fire HD 8.9.

Q2: How to put Blu Ray Dvds to Kindle Fire HD?

"I'd like to transfer my Blu Ray Dvds to my Kindle Fire HD 8.9. However, while I have had no problems with the original disks, the files play fine on my device, but everything I converted has the same error message: "video cannot be played". What is the problem?"

A2: First of all, check the transferred file location, you need put them to Gallery app directory and your tablet can find them and play well; and remember Android systems compatible Memory cards have a limit of 4GB per file because of the FAT32 file system, including Kindle Fire HD. 720p and 1080p movies today can be up to 10GB, and that's definitely will not transfer to the MircroSd card. So you need re-encode and downsize the file;
or if don't wanna re-encode and lose video quality, use Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper to rip your BD/DVD disks again, but this time, use its Split feature. Don't how-to? 

Don't worry, I find a guide page can help. 

The best way to get over 4GB file size limitation for Android Devices

According my experience, H.264 MP4 format is the best format for Kindle Fire HD 8.9. You'd better get a Top Blu-ray DVD Ripper software. After convert the movies to h.264 mp4, just transfer the generated videos to your Fire HD 8.9. 

Guide: How to Rip Blu-ray and DVD Movies to MP4 for Kindle Fire HD 8.9?

Step 1. Load Blu-ray/DVD movies.

Install and launch the best Blu-ray/DVD to Kindle Fire HD converter.

Note: An external Blu-ray drive is required for ripping Blu-ray/DVD disc.

Load Blu-ray Disc, DVD or ISO image to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 movie Converter with one click.

Step 2. Select preferred language from drop-down list of "Subtitles" and "Audio" box.

Step 3. Click "Format" bar and select a MP4 format for Kindle Fire HD 8.9 playback. "Android -> Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264 (*.mp4)" format is recommended for faster conversion and best movie effect.

Step 5. Click "Convert" to start ripping 1080p Blu-ray to Kindle Fire HD 7/8.9 compatible video.

Click the "Open" button to find the converted files when conversion completes and then you can transfer movies to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 easily, and bring your favorite Blu-ray and DVD movies when traveling.

Custom Settings

If you'd like to customize profile settings for better quality or higher resolution, proceed as follows before you start converting Blu-ray to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 video:

Click on "Settings" button. The pop-up Profile Settings window shows you a/v settings you're using.

To take advantage of your screen, set the video size exactly as the display resolution- i.e. 1920 x 1080 for Kindle Fire HD 8.9.

For better quality, set higher bitrate. We find the best balance between 2500kbps to 3000kbps on 8.9-inch screen. To shorten conversion time, set lower quality. Note that when you lower file size, you lower video quality.

Save your preference for future use

One thing good in Pavtube is that you can create new preset for use. For instance, I've decided the best settings work for converting videos to play on the 10.1-inch Kindle Fire HD, and wanna save it for future use, now all I need is save it as a custom preset. This is easy. Just proceed as follows.

1. In the settings window, press "Save As" button.
2. Give the custom preset a name, say "Kindle Fire HD Video 1920 x 1080 (*.mp4)".
3. Click "OK".

The next time you open up the Blu-ray ripper for converting movies to Kindle Fire HD, just press on "Format" bar and find the new preset under "Custom" group.

Amazon WMV Nexus 10: Play Amazon Instant Video on Nexus 10

If you have problems about playing Amazon Instant Video on your Nexus 10  tablet, you can check out the tutorial to Remove DRM from Amazon WMV and record Amazon Instant Video(.wmv) to your Nexus 10.
Have you purchased lots of WMV videos from Amazon store and want to put these Amazon Instant videos to your Google Nexus 10? As is known to everybody, the WMV videos purchased from Amazon store, including music, videos, movies, and TV show etc. are usually format type unsupported by the Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android/Windows 8 tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire (HD). So if you would like to transfer Amazon WMV videos to Nexus 10 for playback, you have to remove DRM from Amazon Instant Video and convert/record it to Nexus 10 compatible formats.

Refer to Google Nexus 10 supported codecs
  • Video codec: H.263, MPEG-4 SP, H.264 AVC
  • Audio codec: AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1 (AAC+), HE-AACv2 (enhanced AAC+), AMR-NB, AMR-WB 9, MP3, MIDI SMF, Ogg Vorbis, WAV
To do it, Pavtube ChewTune is a great help. It is an all-in-one DRM Removal Program to help you convert/record Amazon WMV videos effortlessly to Nexus 10 supported MP4 format in high quality. After that, you can play your Amazon Instant Video(WMV) on Nexus 10 very smoothly. Now, let's start to convert and transfer Amazon WMV to Nexus 7. (Note: For the common WMV videos, Pavtube Video Converter is recommended to you).

The screen is undoubtedly one of the standout features of the Nexus 10. As the name suggests, it measures 10 inches on the diagonal but more importantly packs an astounding 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution. We were previously blown away by the pin-sharp display of the new iPad with its 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution. The Nexus 10 casually swans past that, to offer an even more refined viewing experience.

Now you want to put some Amazon Instant videos to the Google Nexus 10? Wait a minute. The Amazon Instant videos, though mainly .wmv format, are not supported by Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire. To get the Amazon WMV playable on Nexus 10, you'll have to remove the DRM protection first. 

The tools you need to transfer Amazon WMV movies to Nexus 10: A powerful Amazon WMV video DRM remove tool and a WMV to Nexus 10 converter. Pavtube ChewTune combines these two tools together and makes it possible to watch purchased DRM videos on Nexus 10.

To convert videos to Google Nexus 10 with best settings, you can download profile patch for the software(Windows only).

Remove DRM protection off Amazon video and convert WMV to the Nexus 10 for playing

Step 1: Load Amazon WMV video files to Pavtube ChewTune.

Install and launch the Pavtube WMV to Nexus 10 Converter, then click the add button to load the WMV video files to the program.

Step 2: Choose H.264 codec format for the Google Nexus 10 playing.

Click "Format" and select an output format for the Google Nexus 10. Here I choose "Android -> Google Nexus 10 H.264 Video (*.mp4)".

Step 3: Optimize the settings for Amazon video to Nexus 10 conversion.

If you find the default settings may not satisfy your need, can click the "Settings" button to change the settings by yourself.

For Mac users, it is necessary to custom profile settings, since there's no profile patch for OS X. Similarly, you can choose Nexus 7 format and custom the profile for Nexus 10 by clicking "Settings" and set the recommended settings as it shows below:

  • Codec: h264
  • Size (pix): 1920*1080
  • Bitrate (kbps): 2000
  • Frame Rate (fps): original

  • Codec: aac
  • Sample Rate (hz): 44100
  • Bitrate (bps): 128000
  • Channels: Stereo
Step 4: Convert Amazon video to Nexus 10 video format.

Having finished the settings? OK, just click the convert button and start to convert Amazon video to Google Nexus 10 format with ease.

When the conversion task is finished, you can click "Open" button to get the final output files for your Google Nexus 10 and transfer the converted videos to Google Nexus 10.

If you have music and videos to watch on the tablet, here's a guide for copying local videos to Google Nexus 10.

Transferring videos and music from PC to Nexus 10?

1. Use the USB cable that came with your 16 GB or 32 GB Nexus 10 to connect the tablet to your PC, and you'll receive a notification that the USB is connected.

2. Open the Notifications panel and touch USB connected. Then touch Turn on USB storage in the screen that opens to confirm that you want to transfer files. The Nexus 10 tablet is connected as USB storage, and the screen will indicate that USB storage is in use and you receive a notification. The Nexus 10 is mounted as a drive on your computer.

3. You can now copy videos from PC to the Google Nexus 10. During this time, you can't access the SD card from your Nexus 10 or share your tablet's data connection with your computer via USB.

4. When the videos are copied to the 16 GB/32 GB Nexus 10, you can disconnect your Nexus tablet from PC.

Like the Nexus 7, it does not include an SD card slot for additional storage, so you may need a Video Converter to compress very big file to smaller file size. (Learn more on Nexus 7 Column)

Tips: MKV, MOV, TS, MPG, Tivo, FLV, F4V and some AVI videos are not accepted formats and you have to convert them to Nexus 10 optimized H.264 .mp4 videos before downloading them to the device.
