How can I make Sony Xperia Z1 play DVD movies that I own?

To make DVDs playable on a portable device, you have to rip DVD to a format that compatible with your device. In this article, we will guide you through the process of transcoding DVD movies for viewing on Sony Xperia Z1. Follow these steps:

Step 1: Load DVD

Step 2: Select desired subtitles stream and audio track (optional)

In addition, Pavtube DVD Ripper also offers an option called "Forced subtitles", which enables you to see subtitles only when actors are speaking a different language. For instance, if you specify English (your mother tongue) as your subtitles, and meanwhile tick off “Forced subtitles” option, then when actors are speaking English, no subtitles will show up, but when they are talking with each other in French, the English subtitles will appear accompanying with the French.
