In some ways, the idea of the first Kindle Fire was more impressive than the product itself. The Kindle Fire HD improves on the original in nearly every area in which the Fire was lacking and, thanks to some key refinements, proves to be a much better delivery system for that media. With over one million pixels on a stunning 7″ display, the Kindle Fire HD Tablet really rocks for watching movies on the go.
Of course, most of you’re not about to pay Amazon’ ridiculous prices to watch movies and TV shows you already own on DVD. Instead, you’ll just rip those DVDs to Kinde Fire HD friendly formats. To help those who’re interested in doing this likewise, below, I will throw a quick tutorial up.
There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your DVDs and let you watch them the way you want to view them. Most of you are likely familiar with the excellent Handbrake for ripping standard Def DVDs to Kindle Fire HD, keep in mind that the program can’t rip copy-protected DVDs (ie: Disney and other animated discs) without a third-party add-on, and it doesn’t have Kindle-Fire-HD-specific profiles. Frankly, Handbrake actually convert MPEG video (including DVD-Video) into an MPEG-4 video file, but only limited to these DVD-like source: VIDEO_TS folder, DVD image or real DVD (CSS will not be supported and must be dealt with externally with third-party software and libraries. So you’ll need to add an intermediate step to get protected DVD movies onto Kindle Fire HD. The software highly recommeded here is called Pavtube DVDAid.
Frankly, I tried several softwares and I can tell you that NO ONE comes even close to the simpleness and great quality that the program delivers. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other. I’ve had success using the software to backup and rip Disney DVDs to Kindle Fire HD format for my Kids. I’ve found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves. Just download it and follow the tutorial below to convert protected DVD to free MP4 videos for playing on Kindle Fire HD in just a few mouse clicks.

Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.
