Movies for Turkey Day: A list of Thanksgiving Day films from Pavtube Thanksgiving Activities
(Thanksgiving discount/sale from now on till Nov 29th)Put/Play/Watch Bluray DVD movies on HTC Surround via Pavtube Bluray movies DVD to HTC Surround Converter for Mac

Working with a Mac Desktop/ MacBook Air does not prevent you from owning a stylish Windows Phone 7 smartphone, on which you can garner in-game and experience of the Xbox Live hub. And the AMOLED display adds a lot of value to the handset as a whole. The 800*480 resolution displays stunning image and video quality. Wanna transfer movies from Mac to Windows Phone 7? Try Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac. The Bluray movies DVD to HTC Surround Converter for Mac(Thanksgiving discount/sale) helps you schedule all your DVD and Blu-ray collections for Window Phone 7 smartphones (HTC Surround), iTunes, QuickTime Player, iPad, iPhone 4, iPod, etc. Follow our guide to convert BD/ DVD to WP7 compatible formats on Mac.

Preparation work for ripping Blu-ray Disc/ DVD to HTC Surround:
1. Connect your Mac/ MacBook with an external BD drive (regular optical drive will not read Blu-ray Disc)
2. Download and install the Bluray movies DVD to HTC Surround Converter for Mac(Thanksgiving discount/sale)

Copying Blu-ray Disc/ DVD to HTC Surround:

Step 1. Load movie to the Pavtube Bluray movies DVD to HTC Surround Converter for Mac
Place in the source Blu-ray Disc in BD driver. Launch the Bluray movies DVD to HTC Surround Converter. Click ??BD/DVD Folder?? to load your Blu-Ray movie from target drive. When all the Titles are loaded to file list, check the main movie and leave the unwanted files unchecked. The main movie is distinguished by its length (duration).

Click on the Audio box and select an audio track with desired language. Set subtitles in the same way.

Step 2. Select a Windows Phone 7 (and iTunes) supported video format
Click on ??Format?? bar and select a desired format from popup profile list. For HTC Surround, you can follow ??Android??>> ??HTC Supersonic Evo 4G MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)?? or ??Common Video>> H.264 Video (*.mp4)??. For other WP7 phones like Samsung Focus, LG Quantum, Dell Venue Pro, select ??Common Video>> H.264 Video (*.mp4)??. Both MPEG-4 and H.264 encoded MP4 work well with iTunes and QuickTime Player. That??s why you??re not encouraged to select WMV format, even it is supported by WP7 phones.

Step 3. Custom-make the format for Windows Phone 7 (800*480 resolution)
Here comes to specific settings for Windows Phone 7. In order to ensure perfect playback on WP7 phones, you can click on ??Settings?? and custom-make video and audio parameters for Windows Phone 7 resolution and storage. First, find the ??Size?? box and type in ??800*480??. Then set video ??bitrate?? down to ??500~2500kbps??. Basically, higher bit rate leads to bigger file size and better visual quality. A 90min Blu-ray movie will be compressed to 1~2G when you set bitrate to ??low quality??.

When ripping regular DVD to Windows Phone 7, you may also have to crop the black edges off in order to fit for the 800*480 display perfectly.

Step 4. Converting Blu-ray/ DVD movie to HTC Surround supported videos.
Now click "Convert" button and wait. After conversion you can copy the movie clips to Windows Phone 7 (HTC 7 Surround, HTC HD7, HTC 7 Mozart, HTC 7 Trophy, HTC 7 Pro, Samsung Focus, Samsung Ominia 7, LG Optimus 7, LG Quantum, and Dell Venue Pro) and play them at full screen in correct 16:9 proportion. The videos can be added to iTunes Library for playback as well. So you have movie collections on Windows Phone 7 and in iTunes.

Tip: You may save the presets as a specific new format for your Windows Phone 7. Just click the ??Save As?? button in Profile panel. Give it a name like ??WMV for HTC HD 7??, do not use the original name. The next time you run the software, just follow ??Format?? bar>> ??Custom?? to find and use the custom-made format.

Play/enjoy/get your movies/dvd on Popcorn Hour NMT C-200 via Pavtube Bluray Movie to Popcorn Hour NMT C-200 Converter for Mac

Does the Popcorn Hour NMT C-200 play Blu-ray? Some say yes and some say no. If you have a compatible BD drive installed in the Popcorn Hour, the media tank reads unprotected Blu-ray contents with no problem. The problem is most of the time we play copy-protected retail bought Blu-ray discs, instead of region-free and encryption-free ones. Popcorn??s Firmware update comes far behind the update of BD protections, rooting in Blu-ray playback issues such as stutters, frames drop out, out of sync, etc. Since Popcorn Hour streams and plays all kinds of video and digital media from storage device and network or from the Internet, you are advised to rip the Blu-ray to hard drive with Pavtube Bluray Movie to Popcorn Hour NMT C-200 Converter for Mac, and use the NMT C-200 to play the M2TS streams from BDMV folder or region-free Blu-ray ISO image over the Internet (NAS). In this post I??d like to share an easy workflow of ripping Blu-ray movies to be compatible with the NMT C-200. By the way, this is a Mac solution, if you??re working with Windows platform, please check ripping Blu-ray movies to play back on NMT Popcorn Hour C-200 on PC.

Step 2. Click on the dropdown list of "Format" and select output format for NMT C-200. The Popcorn C-200 plays almost everything, so any format is OK. Here you??re recommended to follow ??HD Video??>> ??MPEG-TS HD Video (*.ts)?? or "Copy"> "Directly Copy". The former is good for streaming transport and the latter backs up Blu-ray M2TS streams to Mac hard drive without any quality loss in the fastest way.

Step 3. Click "Convert" button to start ripping Blu-ray movies for streaming to NMT Popcorn Hour C-200.
