Google & LG released Nexus 5 on Nov. 1. It has a large, 5” display with a superb 1080 x 1920 resolution, equipped with Snapdragon 800 quad-core Krait CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, which would make you a very great viewing experience even better than it was already was with the Nexus 4 and other comparable smartphones. It’s really a great phone.

The best settings of video format for Nexus 5 is still MP4 (H.264 & AAC), currently the most popular format. And the resolution? Don’t mind, use the default resolution is just OK, for The maximum resolution of DVD is 720 x 576.

Steps to Rip DVD movies for Nexus 5

You need a program to help you convert the DVDs. A free way is Handbrake. And I usually use Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate, powerful tool including Video Converter, DVD Ripper and DVD Creator, even can download videos from YouTube or other videos sites.

Step 3: Select output video format for Nexus 5

Find “Output Format” on the right of the window and click. Select Device > Others > Nexus 4(Same as Nexus 5). It gives the best format: MP4 (H.264 & AAC).

Note: You can customize the settings of the profile by clicking settings on the bottom right. But I advise you to keep the default setting when ripping a DVD, as the profile is optimized specifically for the device already.
