How to transfer 1080p movies to iPhone 5S via USB cable

Apple’s iPhone 5S might be the best-selling smartphone in the world. It’s thinner, lighter and faster than its predecessors. And it offer 4G. Actually, the greatest highlight of iPhone 5S is the display. iPhone 5S display resolution is 1136 x 640 pixels. Measuring 4 inches diagonally, the new touch screen has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and is branded a Retina display with 326 ppi (pixels per inch). So, some iPhone 5S users like enjoying films on iPhone 5S. However, most of them have issues to transfer 1080p movies to iPhone 5S. Why and how? This article will give you a detailed guide.

How to sync movies from PC to iPhone 5S

1. Download and install latest version of iTunes.

2. Connect iPhone 5S to your computer with Lightning to micro USB Cable, and open iTunes (if it doesn’t open automatically).

3. In iTunes, select your iPhone name under DEVICES in the sidebar.

4. To sync iPhone 5S with iTunes library automatically, simply press “Sync”. In this way everything in your iTunes will be synced with iPhone, including Audio content (music, podcasts, audiobooks, and iTunes U content), Movies and TV shows, Photos, Books, Contacts, Calendars, Documents (File Sharing apps only), Applications, Bookmarks, etc.

5. To sync movies only, check “Manually manage music and videos” in Options area and click Apply. This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. Then you can drag and drop movies from iTunes Movie library to the Movies tab under your iPhone 5S in the sidebar.

It is recommended that you sync your iPhone 5S with iTunes at least once a week. In the unfortunate event that data on your iPhone is lost, this will ensure that you have a recent backup file to restore with.

To be honest, not all the video files can be streamed to iPhone 5S, since we have streamed the movies to iPhone 5S, we hope iPhone 5S can play them successfully. So, What kinds of videos/movies can be synced to iPhone 5S?

iTunes can sync your music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and iTunes U content to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod. iPhone 5S now supports up to 1080p HD movie purchases and rentals.

If you’d like to sync self-made films to the device, always check if they are in supported formats by iPhone 5S. According to Apple, MKV and AVI videos are not accepted formats and you have to convert them to iPhone 5S optimized H.264 .mp4 videos before you can add them to iTunes.

Convert DVD VOB videos to Galaxy Note 3

Files in VOB format have .vob filename extension and are typically stored in the VIDEO_TS folder at the root of a DVD. The VOB format is based on the MPEG program stream format, but with additional limitations and specifications in the private streams.

Movie fans and audiophiles that would like to rip DVD with EXACTLY the same audio and video quality often goes copy DVD to hard drive in VIDEO_TS directory, with fragmented .vob files that form the whole movie. These .vob files, although play well on computer, do not work with Android tablet/smartphone like Galaxy Note 3. Here is a quick start guide introducing a workaround for people who feel like watching DVD VOB videos on Galaxy Note 3 with best viewing effect.

Required Software –
For Windows: Blu-ray video converter ultimate

For Mac: iMedia converter

Convert DVD .vob to Galaxy Note 3 supported .mp4

1. Run the DVD VOB to Galaxy Note 3 converter. The software supports both DVD folder and individual .vob clips. If you have backed up the whole DVD structure to DVD, press “Add folder” to import the VIDEO_TS folder; if you have only .vob clips without .ifo and .bup files, press “Add video” to import single .vob streams.

2. When the DVD folder/.vob videos are loaded successfully, press on the Format bar and choose MP4 format to convert videos into. There’s a customized preset for Galaxy Note 3 tablet, just follow “Android” and choose “Android>> Android Tablets 720P Video (*.mp4)”.

3. To further compress VOB videos, you may press “Settings” and change the audio/video parameters. The task info shows estimated sizes of each file.  For better quality, set higher bitrate. We find the best balance between 1000kbps-2500kpbs on 7-inch screen and 2500kbps to 3000kbps on 8.9-inch screen. To shorten conversion time, set lower quality. Generally the lower bitrate you use, the smaller the output video is, and the less space it takes.

4. Press the big Convert button to convert VOB videos to Galaxy Note 3 supported MP4.

After conversion you just connect the Galaxy Note 3 to PC and copy videos to the slab. Now, you can watch DVD VOB videos on Galaxy Note 3 easily.

 

Get started with AirDrop on iOS 7

4 Thoughts

We’ve all seen the Samsung commercials wherein iOS users are constantly made fun of for buying into Apple products. One of the features often shown off in those commercials has been NFC sharing of documents and photos when two users bump the backs of the their latest Galaxy devices — something everyone knows iOS devices can’t do.

Apple took note of the dig at its products and has implemented a feature it assures users will be better than having to run around tapping phones together.

That feature is called AirDrop.

AirDrop may sound familiar to OS X users, as it’s already implemented on Macs and allows users to drag and drop files to share with other Mac users on the same network.

The feature works in a similar fashion on iOS, with the exception being users aren’t required to be on the same network to transfer content. Instead AirDrop uses a direct Wi-Fi connection for transfers.

Owners of an iPhone 5 or later, iPad fourth generation, iPad Mini and the fifth-generation iPod Touch will be able to take advantage of AirDrop.
