Second Step: Transfer converted DVD movie to iPhone thru iTunes

After getting the converted DVD file (now in iPhone compatible video format), you can transfer and play DVD on iPhone through iTunes or other third party tools. Now we will introduce you to use iTunes to synchronize the DVD video:

Add converted DVD files to iTunes

1. Connect your iPhone to your computer using a Lightning-to-USB cable
2. Launch iTunes on your computer
3. Navigate to File > Add to Library or File > Add Folder to Library
4. Locate the converted DVD video you want (or folder of videos) and then click Open. Your video(s) are now part of your iTunes library.
5. Click on iPhone > Movies.
6. Tick the Sync Movies checkbox
7. Select the the converted DVD movies you just imported to your iTunes library and press Apply/Sync. Your movies are now on your iPhone.

Final Words:

Most of you are likely familiar with the excellent Handbrake for ripping standard Def DVDs, but while for the protected DVDs, you'll need to download and use a free DVD playback library called libdvdcss. Installing libdvdcss can solve part of the problems, but you have to resort to another DVD ripping tool when dealing with strictly encrypted ones (like the Disney DVDs). Moreover, the process is a little complicated and slow and sometimes ripping DVDs with Handbrake may break down in the process. If you failed to convert DVD to iPhone using Handbrake, DumboFab DVD Ripper is great alternative and a specialized program to digitize DVDs with no errors!
