Re: dvd movie playback

Techies may be right- the only way to find out is to get a cool breeze around the unit- a fan say- whilst in operation.

DVD images freeze at certain points or playback becomes choppy

sounds like you will need to clean laser, there are cleaners you can buy out of walmart for this. Don't know if they work well, I take mine apart and use soft cloth and alcohol then letting dry, works fine for me.

Watch Blu-ray and DVD movies on Palm Pre Plus with your desired file size

One feature of smart phones is that enables users to play back digital video and audio on the go, here we just focus on the newly released Palm Pre Plus. This little device has a vivid and bright capacitive touch screen, which is made out of hard plastic, although not as good as glass, holds up fine. The screen is 3.1 inch, at 320 x 480 pixels, with multitouch capabilities. Besides this, Palm Pre Plus has doubled internal memory from 8GB to 16GB, so you can store more videos, music, and photos on it, and access them whenever and wherever at will.
To enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies on the Pre Plus, two things you need consider: firstly, the file format, secondly, the capacity of your device. First off, let’s see the Pre Plus supported file formats:
Playback Digital Video Formats: H.264, MPEG-4, H.263 video and AMR audio
Supported Digital Audio Standards: AAC, AMR, MP3, WAV, AAC +, eAAC+
In addition to copy protections (CSS, AACS, BD+), DVD movies, especially the Blu-rays always has large file size, so we need a tool to assist us to remove protections as well as compress file size, or select a specific clip for playback. When it refers to this function, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is recommended.
Part one: About Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper:
It is an all-in-one Blu-ray and DVD ripper, converter and editor. With this application you can directly rip Blu-ray and protected DVD movie from the discs without other decryption software and convert them to compatible video and audio formats to transfer to Palm Pre Plus, iPod, iPhone, PSP, Apple TV, Blackberry, Gphone, 3GP, Zune, Xbox 360, Creative Zen, Archos, Nokia, DV, Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas etc for playback and editing.
It supports both HD and SD output formats and allows you to customize video size, aspect ratio, bitrate, frame rate, audio channel, etc. Movie collectors would be glad to find that Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper removes the protections of Blu-Ray movies and protected DVD when back them up for collection.
The ripper handles all versions of Blu-ray discs/DVDs, and allows you to select your desired subtitle and audio track, so you will never miss *********** language.
Part two: How to rip Blu-ray and DVD movies for Palm Pre Plus with your required file size

Step 1: Launch Pavtube Blu-Ray ripper and import Blu-ray/DVD files to it
There are three ways to load Blu-ray and DVD files: through "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" and "IFO/ISO".
Step 2: Select output format for Palm Pre Plus
Since Palm Pre Plus supports playback H.264, MPEG-4, H.263 video, here I choose "H.264 Video (*.mp4)" as output format.

Step 3: Customize file quality and file size
Click "Settings" button, and then the following interface will show up, on which you are able to adjust bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, aspect ratio, etc. to make control of the output file size and quality. To compress the file size, what you should do is changing the figures of these options to be smaller only. One more thing you must be sure that there will be some quality loss if you compress them to be a much smaller size, which means you’d better make a balance between the size and image quality. At least the output video quality should be acceptable by yourselves.

Step 4: Start Blu-ray/DVD ripping
As long as the former three steps are set well, then you can click "Convert" button to start Blu-ray/DVD ripping. Once finished, you can find out the output files via clicking "Open" button. After that the generated files are prepared for playback on your Palm Pre Plus.
Additional tips:
How to select a specific video duration to rip
You can click on the "Edit" button on the main interface firstly, and then click on "Trim" icon. After that you can drag the slider bars below the preview window to mark the beginning and the end of your clip during the preview, or you can input the certain time into "Start" and "End" boxes directly to do your selections.

DVD player cuts out during movie

I have had this problem after 1 year of use. I called Panasonic to tell them the issue and they said it is beyond the warranty so they are not willing to do anything about it. I know they know this is a known defect and they are not doing anything to help their customers who paid good money on their system. Lesson learned... next time pay a little more and go with SONY!!!

DVD Player Problems

Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is

DVD player stops frequently during playback

Yes first try to clean the laser with a lens cleaner. If that does not work you can then try to take off the cover and clean off the lens manually with a slightly damp cotton swab and alcohol. After that turn around the swab and dry the lens with the dry side of the swab. If that doesnt work then it Probably is out of alighnment or the spindle motor is bad, and is most likly not worth the bench charge for an estimate.

Samsung ht-db650

I dont think its connected. anyway, make sure DVD is clean and unscratched. If it wont help and these are commercial DVDs, then there is probably something wrong with them. If they are home made DVDs, then it may be that your player doesn't handle them well and you can try to burn it a other dvd format... look in you r manual to find out which format are compatible.. Good luck.
