Ever thought of putting DVD movie collections onto Google Nexus 4 so as to watch movies on the road? The Nexus 4 has a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus LCD screen with a WXGA (768 x 1280) resolution and full RGB stripe. Size wise, the Nexus 4 comes in 16:9, just fine for watching HD movies and playing games. Indeed, videos, photos and everything else do look phenomenal on Nexus 4, but there is a problem – we don’t have much space to store them with the memory capped at either 8GB or 16GB. And there’s no SD slot for extending storage. Now that the storage is tense, you need to compress HD and sometimes SD videos that are of big file size, for instance, your DVD ISO image. A DVD backup in ISO/IFO format let you have exactly the same quality of the original DVD movie, yet it usually takes up 4GB+ storage. That is not acceptable for an Android device like Nexus 4.
With Pavtube DVD Ripper it is as easy to rip DVD and compress DVD ISO/IFO to Nexus 4 playable MP4 video. When you compress a double-layer DVD to 800M, you can put up to 10 movies onto the Google Nexus 4 device. Find a guide below for how to convert and compress DVD ISO/IFO to Google Nexus 4.

Part 2. How to further compress and customize DVD movie for Google Nexus 4
The default format/preset exports good quality for Nexus 4 at an acceptable file size. But you may further customize video quality and file size. For smaller file size, you can click “Settings” and set lower video bitrate. To further compress a DVD movie (100 minutes of length) into 800M, reduced video bitrate down to 1200kpbs. In that case a 16GB Google Nexus 4 should be able to hold more than 10 DVD rips.
Note: Keep in mind that when you lower bitrate, you lower video quality meanwhile.
