How to Play DVD on Android Tablet and Phone? Rip It First
Watching DVD is still a favorite means of entertainment for many people. Is it possible to play DVDs on Android tablets or phones so that we can enjoy DVD movies on the go?
Can Android read DVDs? Since there isn't a built-in disc drive, Android cannot play DVDs directly. Well, can we connect an external DVD drive to an Android phone or tablet and download an Android DVD player app? It is possible if your Android device supports USB OTG system. However, many phones don't support OTG, so they don't support an external DVD drive/player. And there is no DVD player app for Android. To watch DVD on Android tablet or phone, you can rip DVD to Android playable format. In this article, we'll show you how to digitize DVD for Android and transfer the digital copy to Android for playback on the move.
