  • 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 your mother 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.

  • Expand capacity of Apple TV For some reasons, I haven’t made full use of my 40GB Apple TV in the last 2 years. Recently, I have more spare time to do so, and would like to use it in my living room with my wide screen TV to enjoy its functionality fully. It works fine to playback all the files I throw at it, but 40GB is too confining for all my photos and music, not to mention my movies and other video collection. To solve this problem, once I have to make my Mac Pro and iTunes running to stream all my data to the Apple TV. It seems a bit troublesome, I dislike it. So I look for a solution to expand the capacity of my Apple TV. Via Google, I’ve found some useful articles talking about this issue, and I followed them, and finally successfully upgrade the hard drive of the Apple TV lately. Here I’d like to document my process below, but before that, I’d like to show my gratitude to people who I’ve got useful info from their articles, even though I can not remember their exactly names now. In summary, the process is relatively simple, a small 40GB hard drive can be freely replaced, thus becomes a DIY Apple TV. Dismantle the Apple TV, remove the hard drive, and connect it to an Intel Mac Pro via WiebeTech Forensic DriveDock or other 2.5-inch hard drive FireWire bridge. Start the Mac, and you will see that hard drive partition of Apple TV is structured as follows: /dev/disk5 #: type name size identifier 0: GUID_partition_scheme *37.3 GB disk5 1: EFI 34.0 MB disk5s1 2: 400.0 MB disk5s2 3: Apple_HFS OSBoot 900.0 MB disk5s3 4: Apple_HFS Media 36.0 GB disk5s4 400MB of space which could be used to store the system restore data. Extract overall image via CopyCatX, and recover them to a new hard drive which you want to change back. I found lots of people like using a Western Digital 120GB WD1200VE hard drive. Install the new hard drive to Apple TV, and in the test, you will find the system continues to recognize only 40GB of space, because the partition information is the same with the original 40GB hard drive. But in fact, there are more than 70GB of space not being used. Remove the new hard drive to re-connect to the Mac, and allocate the unused more than 70GB space to the Media partition with the help of iPartition or other partitioning software. Be careful, not to change the EFI or the other 400MB partition. After install it back to the Apple TV, all the 107GB space will be recognized completely, you are done! Now I’m able to store more photos, movies, music, and television shows on the Apple TV. But when it comes to video playback, Apple TV has strict formats limitation, it caused troubles again, and I have to convert all my videos to Apple TV formats .mp4 and .mov in advance. However, this does not the most important thing I’m concerned, because I have already have a video converter on my Mac Pro, and my most intention is to watch my Blu-ray on it. Fortunately, via Google again, I get an available Blu-ray Ripper for Mac to meet my needs, which is able to run on Mac independently as long as you have an external BD drive. To keep HD quality as well as compress BD size, I usually select HD video as my output option. A great product, I like it. Besides this, it seems there are also another version developed for Windows user, attached this BD ripper here, maybe it’s your choice. Well, by the way, Apple installed Fujitsu hard drives in original, and this could be due to their relatively small power and heat consumption, so when replacing the hard drive, you can also take this factor into account. In addition, the replacement of the hard disk will let you lost product warranty, please proceed with caution.
  • My tour at The Great Wall of China My China trip in Beijing, the capital city of China, is unforgettable. It’s an amazing and impressive experience for me to visit the famous Great Wall there. The late autumn of Beijing is a little cold and wind blowing; looking along the stretches of mountains, a feeling of tracing back to the ancient is emerging without rhyme or reason The construction of The Great Wall in China's history has never been stopped. In which there are three times large-scale construction, after Qin Shi Huang unified China for the first time, facing the north powerful Huns, he temporarily unable to send troops. It is only through the construction of The Great Wall to defense the threat from the north to eliminate trouble on the frontier. He connected the north Yan, Zhao, Wei and his own side walls together to form the true meaning of The Great Wall in China's history,. In the Western Han Dynasty, Emperor Wu of Western Han expanded his borders and lands, opened the Silk Road, so, longer then The Great Wall in China's territory. The Great Wall as we see today was mostly built during the Ming Dynasty. "Badaling" is one of the most valuable sections of The Great Wall, which not only preserved the shape of The Great Wall completely, such as the wall, watch tower, beacon tower, and city gate, etc. but also presented the complexity of its manufacturing processes, whose difficulty of construction is remarkable to us modern people. Going up stairs: slope is slow, the staircase is long, which is felt even the wall is the lowest. Since it is late autumn, visitors are less, and I feel very good! The inside walls are really like the beautiful woman in general; lateral embrasures are also like men in general fortitude; both sides of the mountain are like a person’s arms, hold you in the middle. In this way, unknowingly already reached "the fourth floor of the north". At this time, lots of people immediately appeared. Why there are so many people here? It turned out that "the fourth floor of the north" is the starting point of the pulleys at "Badaling", and visitors can take the pulley up and down here to reduce the distance and save strength. So many people walked along the wall, crowded to a bustling sideway which only allows two persons passing through rubbing elbows with each other. Boarded the watch tower, looked far to the north, and still needed climb over several watch towers to reach the peak - "the eighth floor of the north", also known as the "hero slope". Look down from the embrasure, the crowds are crowded; look upward, the path was suddenly pulled up by the sky, slope became steeper, the stairs are narrower, and walls are also a number of increasingly heavy. There is a popular proverb in China that "He who has never been to The Great Wall is not a true man". I determined to be a true man, so went through the heavy crowd, I was moving forward to the peak. I reached, standing on "the eighth floor of the north", looked downward with the wind. A kind of lofty sentiment arose spontaneously. Maybe that is the power of this great nation. A tired but meaningful happy journey, it’s wise for me to sync some BD movies to my iPod via Blu-ray ripper and iTunes before my China tour, and after going back to the hotel and taking a shower, I’m able to enjoy my beloved movie clips to relax myself. Through the trip in "Badaling" Great Wall, I have a new understanding of the culture of China, and also roughly know why the Chinese people take The Great Wall as a symbol of Chinese civilization, and why they say it is standing still there to record the hardship and bitterness that Chinese people have endured in the past 2,000 years. I believe it is a worthy journey and I’d like to travel to China once more to study its rich culture and appreciate its beautiful unique natural landscapes. Another China tour is looked forward to at my heart. More : http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper
