I usually review a cool product out there every now and then. But I’ve found one of the best software solutions out there. We live in the Times Of Handheld Devices.
How many BD movies have you purchased that come with Digi-copies you simply can’t watch on your Android device because everything in the world revolves around iTunes? Probably a lot of times. The Android community has long been frustrated by the lack of options available to us due to many reasons too long to list here, but what I believe to be the most egregious is the Digital Copy problem.
From TechCrunch: (emphasis mine)
- According to new figures released from analyst firm IDC, Android shipments reached 136 million units in Q3 2012, which accounts for 75% of the 181.1 million shipments during the quarter. Or, as IDC puts it, “the Android operating system was found on three out of every four smartphones shipped during the third quarter of 2012.
That’s a lot of people that can’t watch their Digital Copy movies on their Android devices, such as Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD, Galaxy Note 2 etc. Android devices.
Tips – Have you ever got some similiar problems as following:
Q1: Can the Google Nexus 7 Tablet play a Digital Copy of a movie? I would like to download a movie from my Digital Copy Disc on my tablet. Is it possible?
Q2: How to transcode my digital copy video files from Blu-ray Combo to a Samsung Galaxy Note 2?
Q3: Kindle Fire HD – Digital Copy Download Not Working? I downloaded a digital copy of a movie and I copied the file onto Kindle Tablet’s folders where my other movies are, and when I went to play it, it gave me error “Sorry, video cannot be played” Why and how can I get it to work?
Q4: I was trying to load files from a DVD to convert to .mp4 files for NOOK HD, but received the following error message after transferring: “This file cannot be played on the tablet”. How to play Digital Copy movies on Android tablet?
Do you know Digital Copy is DRM protected, and you need strip this kind of protection first before trasfer? The toturial can help you, refer to below solution.
Adding to the frustration is the amount of information out there that, really, tells us nothing. Believe me, I’ve tried nearly everything people out there have suggested and, frankly, none of it works. Until now.
Rejoice, Android users, rejoice. For there’s finally being a solution that does what it says it’s supposed to do.
Android users, meet Pavtube and their product: ChewTune.
From their overview: (emphasis mine)
- …this converter software is able to convert iTunes video and audio files like .mp4, .wmv, .m4v, .asf, .mov, .wma, .mp3, .m4a, etc. to many other commonly used A/V formats, which makes it possible for you to freely enjoy the converted files on almost all multimedia devices, such as iPad, the New iPad 3, Apple TV 3rd Gen, Kindle Fire HD,Google Nexus 10/7, Motorola Xoom, HP TouchPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Nook Color Tablet, WD TV, PlayBook, Samsung Infuse 4G, Lenovo IdeaPad K1, Acer Iconia Tab A200, Vizio Tablet, PSP, PS VIta, Droid X, Samsung Epic 4G, and more, so your iTunes Store movies and music are not restricted to iPad, iPod and iPhones any longer.
Pavtube has many, many different solutions…and if their sound and robust ChewTune is any indication of the quality of the rest of their products, these folks are on the right track.
So, let’s get to it. You bought your Thor BD and you transferred that Digicopy to your computer.
Open up ChewTune and import your Digicopy by clicking on the “Add Video” button that I’ve circled in the picture below:
As you can see I’ve got my Thor Digicopy loaded into ChewTune and it’s ready to go. Choose your Output directory down at the bottom there that I’ve highlighted as well.
Press the big circular “Start Conversion” button to the right and let it do its magic.
It truly is as simple as that. Go ahead and transfer your newly converted movie onto your Android device and enjoy…as you should have been able anyway. No loss in quality, audio is fantastic.
However, Here’s where ChewTune truly makes its mark and sticks out from the muddled mess of conversion software out there: flexibility and options.
Above “Output” and to the right of “Format” press “Settings“. Think you’re stuck to only one format? Think again:
Dozens upon dozens of formats at your disposal. PavTube has pulled no punches. This is a complete solution at its best.
That’s what people want and that’s what people need.
In my opinion and, frankly, in the opinion of every Android user I know…this is a solution that is welcomed. As the statistics I stated clearly show, Android is the platform the majority of people are using…and those people have been rightly frustrated with this perceived snub.
Now, go ahead and purchase ChewTune and get the most from your movie purchase that you deserve.
Thank you PavTube.
