The Kindle Fire is a nice 7-inch tablet that links seamlessly with Amazon’s impressive collection of digital music, video, magazine, and book services in one easy-to-use package. However, the Android based Tablet has its big defect – Limited Video formats: MP4 and VP8. If you just have some Blu-ray Disc(.mts) movies and just wanna put and enjoy them on the Kindle Fire, you will find Blu-ray playback on Kindle Fire is a blue moon. Sounds Annoying? No! You just need to convert Blu-rays to Kindle Fire compatible video formats since there is no BD Drive. The article will show you how to rip Blu-ray movies for Kindle Fire with best video settings under Mac OS X. Get some help from third-party softwares.

Simple Guide – Rip/Convert Blu-ray movies to MP4 Video for Kindle Fire playback on Mac OS X Lion.
The process is straightforward. After inserting the Blu-ray Disc and loading the Disc movies into the Blu-ray to mp4 Converter for Kindle Fire on your Mac, click on the “Format” bar to choose a format for Blu-ray video conversion. Here I recommend you select “Nook Color (*.mp4)” in “Android” category. This profile is specially designed for Nook tablet, but still suitable for Kindle Fire.
After everything’s set down, click the big “Convert” to start converting Blu-ray to Kindle Fire friendly videos. After several conversions and tests I worked out the best settings for converting Blu-rays to Kindle Fire, you can take it as reference (The Profiles used here- “H.264 Video(*.mp4)” from “Common Video“):
Video Codec- H.264
Video Format- .mp4
Video Bitrate – 1500kbps
Frame Rate – 30fps
Audio Codec- AAC
Audio Bitrate- 128kbps
Sample Rate- 44.1khz
Audio Channel- Stereo
I choose H.264 .mp4 as the best format for Kindle Fire conversion because it is the recommended video format for local playback on Kindle Fire tablet by Amazon official site. Although Kindle Fire supports video playback up to 1080p, I choose 1280*720 for converting Blu-ray to Kindle Fire- the tablet screen resolution is 1024*600, and I don’t plan to watch Kindle Fire videos on HDTV via HDMI output- I have WD TV Live Plus for HD movie playback. For watching videos on Kindle Fire tablet, 1500kbps is just all right. I find that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.
So there you have it. Pretty simple. Now just transfer and watch the 1080p Blu-ray movies on Kindle Fire anytime and everywhere as you like.
