Converting DVD to Windows Mobile 6

A big fan of Spb Software House, today I decided to check out their Spb Mobile DVD application.

I have to confess that I’ve never really seen the point of converting DVDs to watch on small, pocket devices such as a Windows Mobile PDA/phone.

Until I tried it, of course! Wow! It’s so cool. I can now get entire movies crammed into 200 MB, stuffed in my pocket!

The application is simplicity itself to use:

  1. Insert DVD of choice
  2. Run Spb Mobile DVD to begin the wizard
  3. Select which movie chapter to watch
  4. Select your settings (format, screen size, screen ratio, etc.)
  5. Watch it convert (on my Core 2 Quad Q6600 it took only 18 mins for an 86 mins feature film)
  6. Copy the resulting .avi or .wmv file to your mobile device

I’m using the freeware TCPMP media player for watching the created .avi DivX video.

I think I’m going to have to try some other stuff that I’ve been sceptical about up until now.

Like drugs, the Conservative Party, doilies.

  1. hello. I can’t get the TCPMP to work for mobile 6.0. Is there a version that does? Plus when I play movies on my smart phone they are choppy. I have a samsung blackjack II 128 mg ram.

    Thanks!
