Both the Kindle Fire HD 7" and 8.9" model are definitely nicer for watching movies than the original Kindle. According to Amazon's official parameters, the Jelly Bean tablets support but only videos in MP4, 3GP, VP8(.webm) formats. Moreover, just like other Android gadgets, the Kindle Fire HD doesn't support for DVD playback. So if your movie is still on a DVD, you'll need to do some in advance. I mean you need to convert DVD's to Kindle Fire HD playable videos first.
The process is much easier than you may think. Below I will take Pavtube DVD Ripper for example to show you how to rip DVD movies to Kindle Fire HD supported video formats in just three step within clicks.
First, download the DVD to Kindle Fire HD Converter free trial version:
Overall, the program is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs. It helps me rip and convert all the DVD Discs even DVD iso/ifo image files. The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too. I tried several softwares and I can tell you that NO ONE comes even close to the simpleness and great quality that Pavtubes softwares deliver. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other.
A Simple Guide: How to Convert DVD to Play on Kindle Fire HD
The quick start guide below uses DVD Ripper Windows screenshots. The way toencode DVD movies to Kindle Fire HD on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system.
Step 1: Load DVD Movies
Open Pavtube DVD Ripper, insert the DVD disc to your computer drive, and then click the "DVD Disc" icon on the interface to navigate to the videos you want to convert. As you see, you can also add ISO file, IFO file or DVD folder.
Step 2: Specify output format
Now choose the output format for playback on your Kindle Fire HD. You can get the optimized videos for Kindle Fire HD under Format > Android > Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264(*.mp4). The output videos could fit on your Kindle Fire HD perfectly.
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, frame rate, resolution, etc that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Keep in mind that the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the Amazon Kindle tablets, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. If you're not happy with the output quality, just adjust the bitrate as you like.
Step 3: Start the conversion
When you are satisfied with all the settings, you can click "Convert" and let the software do the DVD to Kindle Fire HD MP4 conversion. After the ripping, you can click "Open" to locate the converted MP4 video files and just transfer them to yourKindle Fire HD without limitations!
