Preliminary distribution for Android 4.4.3 started

A source inside Google reported that the period of internal testing for Android 4.4.3 has already begun, according to android police. The update will be minor, fixing a number of bugs.

The version known to the public as KitKat MR2 is from a few days entered the stage of preliminary distribution( testing or also known as dogfooding) within the company in Mountain View. At the moment, only 1% of Google employees would receive an upgrade to the new release of Android, but they say in the coming weeks will also be extended to the rest of the community of workers in the business. Android 4.4.3 should be compatible with almost any device, and in particular will be fully installed across the Nexus range( Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 from 2012, Nexus 7 from 2013, and Nexus 10) followed by Google Play Edition and Moto-X.
An advanced release, a leaked changelog of the Android 4.4.3 update, declared that the build is in the first place for bug fixes.

One of the main issues that the Android 4.4.3 update is supposed to bring is one for the mm-qcamera-daemon crash. First, the Nexus 5 smartphone was noticed to be hit by a battery consumption problem, which Google claimed was because of high CPU use of the mm-qcamera-daemon process that resulted in the battery consuming sooner than expected. The mm-qcamera-daemon problem is affecting all Qualcomm-powered devices running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Other fixes supposed to cover frequent data connection failure, camera focal point in standard and HDR modes, power manager display wake lock, USB debugging protection, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi auto-connect, random boot, app shortcuts security, missed a call LED, and data usage graph. Additional fixes may include email/exchange, MMS, calendar, people/dialer/contacts, DSP, IPv6 and VPN.

At the moment it is not possible to know when it will be released, we are still waiting for further information.

How to Put Disney cartoon DVD movies to Fuhu DreamTab for Kids

Description: This article just want to help parents out how to convert Disney cartoon DVD to Fuhu DreamTab playable video so that your kids can enjoy the DVD movies on the go.

Collaborating with Intel and DreamWorks, Fuhu is prepping 8- and 12-inch Android 4.4 “DreamTab” tablets for kids. "Given the tablet’s strong performance and a screen with higher quality and resolution than typical kiddie tablets, the DreamTab should give Amazon’s “Kindle Fire HDX a serious run for its money,” wrote Spoonauer.

With a full-featured large and brilliant display, DreamTab is a movie theater especially designed for kids. If you've got lost of Disney cartoon DVD discs for your kids and want to transfer these DVD movies to Fuhu DreamTab so that your kids can enjoy the movies on-the-go, you'll find a solution here. In this article, we'll show you how to easily convert DVD to DreamTab playable videos for your children.

As we know, DreamTab is an Android tablet. Like other Android tablets, it doesn't have a DVD drive to play DVD movies. To make DVD playable on DreamTab, you need to rip DVD to DreamTab compatible video formats with a DVD ripping tool.

There is a large variety of different tools can do this. But for this guide I am using Pavtube DVD Ripper, one of the most popular conversion application for phones and tablets due to its ease of use, the support provided when needed, and of course the very affordable price.

Download the free trial version and go on! Now, I will show you how to play DVD movies on Fuhu DreamTab.

Step 1: After you insert the DVD, install and run Pavtube DVD Ripper, launch it and load DVD movies with "Load file" icon. It also supports IFO image files. Below is the screenshot of the main interface after I load DVD movie.

Step 3: Then you need to choose the output format. Although Pavtube does not have the specific profile for DreamTab as iPad, you could choose "H.264 Video (*.mp4)" format under "Common Video".

Step 4: Customize the profile settings. You can adjust the video bitrate, frame rate, audio channels, etc. According to my experience, this step can be shipped because the original setting is enough.


If your children begins to learn words, you could add some subtitles for the output videos so that they can review the words when enjoying the movies.

Step 5: Click the "Convert" button to start the conversion. Just waiting for a while and then you will get the output videos.

Step 6: Connect the DreamTab to the computer with the USB cable, and then turn it on. Double click on your computer icon and then double-click on the drive letter for your DreamTab. Double click on the "LLN" directly, then "MOVE". Copy your video into the directory.

Note: Do not use the LLN program! Just copy it directly to the SD card.

Unplug the USB cable and start your video program and the movies should be there ready to play. Hope this can help you as well.

The main apps available for kids are simple games, learning videos, basic photo editors, MP3 player, skills apps, etc. Plus, most kids’ tablets can play videos, especially 2014 Disney Movies, but in a specific format.
  , Most Kids' Tablet do not suppport 2014 Disney Movies in Blu-ray/DVD disc for playback or fails to recognize Disney video in other popular video formats like MKV, AVI, Tivo, VOB, MTS, MPG, FLV, F4V.  Now in this tablet you’ll find how you can convert 2014 Disney Movies (Blu-ray/DVDs/Video) for the most popular Kids' Tablet: Innotab, Nabi 2, ChildPad, Kurio 7, LeapPad.

How do I make Blu-ray movies playable on VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 for my Kids

This guide explains how you can convert Blu-ray movies for your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2, so that you can watch them on your InnoTab 3/2, without having to purchase them again from a digital movie store.
Nowadays, with the ability to purchase movies online, and watch it in a matter of seconds, more and more people prefer to digital content. But if we look at digital content, we will find each brand and device category has their own movie store. iTunes only works with Apple, Google Play works only with Android, Samsung MediaHub only works with Samsung devices, etc.

None of these stores take the content you already have into account, so if you want to play these movies on your VTech InnoTab 3/2, you will need to purchase it twice, and what makes things even worse is that purchases from one don't mix with those from another.

These disadvantages make physical form stand out. Have you happened to have some Blu-ray disc and want to play on your VTech InnoTab 3/2? You can use a program such as BDMagic to convert your Blu-ray movies to a format that will work perfectly on your VTech InnoTab 3/2, and if you do upgrade later-on, you can either use the same file, or convert the disk again for your other devices.


Of course your VTech InnoTab 3/2. While you don't need it for the conversion process, but you need it to be able to put the movie onto it.

The connection cable for your VTech InnoTab 3/2.

An sd memorycard that works with your VTech InnoTab 3/2.

A computer with either Windows OS or Mac OS as Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper is available for Windows XP/2003/Vista/Window 7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1, while Pavtube BDMagic for Mac supports Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, Snow Leopard 10.6, Leopard 10.5

There is a large variety of different tools available for this. But for this guide I am using Pavtube BDMagic, one of the most popular conversion application for phones and tablets due to its ease of use, the support provided when needed, and of course the very affordable price.

You can purchase Pavtube Blu-ray Rippper 30% off for New New Year Promotion, or download the free trial version (The trial version has Pavtube watermark on the output video.)

A DVD drive for you to convert DVDs while Blu-ray drive for converting Blu-rays for your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2

Step-by-step Guide:

This guide will take Windows OS as a example, if you are a Mac user, just choose the right version and the process is almost same.

Step 1: Download and install Pavtube BDMagic on your computer.

Step 2: Load the Blu-ray movies to the program.

Step 3: Choose the output format. Click "Common Video" > " H.264 Video (*.mp4)" as the output format.

Step 4: Click the "Convert" button to start the Blu-ray to VTech InnoTab kid tablet conversion.

Step 5: Connect your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 to your computer and copy the file over to the MOVIE folder located in the LLN folder on your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2's memeorycard.

Once completed, just open the build-in video player app on your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2, and tap the movie to play it.

What happen during the conversion:

The actual movie conversion process takes some time. Many people don't realize that converting a Blu-ray to play on the VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 is a bit more involved than just copying over the movie from the Blu-ray to the tablet. Conversion tools such as Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper actually have to do a lot more than that:

Disc Transfer. You can not just stick Blu-ray in your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 as it don't have a Blu-ray drive, even though you connect a Blu-ray drive with some cables and adapters to your tablet, there are no Blu-ray player apps available, so it will not work anyway. So, a conversion tool such as Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper plays the role of reading your Blu-ray and storing it on your computer in a video file.

Format Change. The VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 do not support the format like AVI and MKV, so in order for VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 to play your movies, the video files needed to be optimized. This is where the actual conversion part comes in. Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper reads your Blu-ray movies and then transforms it into a format that is optimized for VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 so that it will play your video without any issues.

Compression. It is usually that a movies on Blu-ray takes up 5-9GB of space. When you copy a movie over to your VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 of that size, you can only store a few movies, and there is no room left. Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper can compress movies to a much smaller file size enabling you to store much more movies on it.

Screen size adjustment. The conversion process adjust size of your movies to make it fit properly on the VTech InnoTab 3/InnoTab 2 screen.

Play M4V on Android Tablet with M4V Player or M4V Converter

This article gives you two ways to play M4V on Android OS-based tablet with the best visual and audio effect: M4V Player for Android and M4V Converter for Android.

Nowadays, with the development of android, more and more people are using Android phone or tablet. But these devices aren't compatible with many format videos such as M4V. M4V is a format that created by Apple and protected by DRM. Due to the protection, this file format is not compatible with Android system. When I surf on the Internet, I have found that many people asked many problems about playing M4V files; here is one of the questions lifted on Android Forums:

"I am searching for a video player app that can play m4v files. I am an apple product fan and use an iPhone for this currently and have wanted to switch over to android. But as far as I can tell there are no video player apps that do this. Dose anyone know of an app that can do this?"

Many people reply to the thread, and according to these replies, I sort out two ways for you to solve the problem.
The First Way: M4V Player for Android 

One person recommended the MX Player. He said that the MX video player can play everything. I Google it and find MX Video Player is a free app for Android device that allows you to play videos on your phone.

This app enables you to play most video files and subtitle files with multi-core decoding capability. MX Video Player is the first Android video player performs multi-core decoding. It supports multiple movie files like 3GP, Divx, F4V, MP4, MPEG, MOV, M4V(have removed DRM protection) and VOB.

The Second Way: M4V Converter for Android
The second way is convert M4V to Android tablet supported format. If you want to play M4V format videos on Android tablets and avoid some unnecessary troubles, the M4V to Android tablet converter can aim your goal. It can meet all your needs with its powerful function; it can convert all videos like AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, MOV, M4V. Let's begin with the detailed introduction about converting M4V files to Android OS-based tablet supported format.

First, free download Pavtube M4V to Android tablet converter and install in your computer. It only take up a little space in your computer.

Then, add the M4V files or videos in the M4V to android converter. Do this by clicking the "Add File" icon.


The following, this is an important step that you need choose a right output format. It is the key to solve playback problem, you can choose MP4, it is the best compatible format for Android.

In the "Edit" you can edit your videos by trimming, cropping, adding Watermarket and subtitle.

The last step is clicking the convert button to start this conversion. Then a little time later, you can copy to Android devices for playback.

Note: The precondition of these two ways of playing M4V video is that you've removed the DRM protection of iTunes videos. If you want to convert the M4V videos protected by DRM, ChewTune (Review) is such a DRM removal tool legally strips DRM copy protection from Digital Copy, WMV, and M4V.

If you are interested in this M4V to Android tablet convert, you can have a try.

Over the past years, smart phones and tablets built on Android OS have been gaining more and more popularity worldwide. Most Mac users are now not content with playing DVDs on the DVD player and Mac but want to watch the DVD movie on their Android device. However, the fact is that Android phones only read and play video in relatively few formats H.263, H.264 AVC, MPEG-4. 

That is to say, if you want to watch DVD movies for more fun on your Android, such as Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Google Nexus 9, Nexus 6, Galaxy Note 4, Asus Transformer Prime, Nook HD tablet, Kindle Fire HD, etc, you need to rip DVD to Android compatible video formats on your Mac first and then import the converted videos to your device. 

Hot Search: DVD to Roku | DVD to Plex | DVD to Chromecast | DVD to Surface | DVD to iPad 

Luckily to all Mac users, Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac (Currently on sale – 50% Off) is a dynamic DVD ripping tool that can help you rip and convert DVD to Android highly supported MP4 video files with high output video quality and fast ripping speed on mac OS X (Include Mavericks and Yosemite). Besides, you are allowed to edit the DVD movies by trimming, cropping, adjusting video effects, etc. to get the very wanted part and effects as you like. 

Moreover, this DVD converter can also help you convert DVD to all other popular video formats like AVI, MOV, MKV, WMV, FLV, MPG, etc. for playing and sharing on iPhone, iPad, Archos, Zen, Blackberry, YouTube, Facebook, etc. bypassing the DVD copy protection. Just get it now and follow the steps below to convert copy DVD movies to your Android device thru a Mac for smoothly playing! 


Convert, Transfer and Play DVD movies on Android device under Mac OS X 

1. Add DVD movies. 

Add your DVD files by clicking the "Load File(s)" button and selecting the DVD files you want to rip from your computer's hard drive. ISO image files and IFO files are also supported. After the DVD files are loaded, you can preview them on the right viewing window and take snapshots of your favorite movie scene.

Basically the "Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4)" is a universal format for Android tablets and smartphones. Or depends on your device, you can choose a suitable video format from "Android" catalogue. 


If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. I found the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means itrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. Recommended settings: 

Video Size: 1280*720 
Bitrate(kbps): 1500~2000 

3. Start the DVD to Android Conversion 

When you are satisfied with all the settings, you can click "Convert" button and let the software do the DVD to Android MP4 conversion. After the ripping, you can click "Open" to locate the converted MP4 video files and just transfer them to your Android tablet/phone from your Mac without limitations! 

So there you have it. Pretty simple! now you can watch DVD movies on your Android thru a Mac. Have fun! 

Tips: Before the conversion, you can click "Edit" to edit your videos by cropping, trimming, adding watermarks, etc. What's more, you can choose the subtitles and audio track for the target video on the main interface. 

Not a Android users? It doesn't matter, the Pavtube Converter also supports "common" video formats like MOV, M4V, MP4 and has presets for all the models of iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple TV, so you should be able to create files compatible with your iOS basd devices, as well as BlackBerry and Windows 8 RT/Pro devices.

Android Blu-ray Ripper: Get a Blu-ray movies on Android Tablet/Phone for watching

Store many Blu-ray collections at home and want to watch Blu-ray movies on your Android Tablet & Smartphone? But, of course, we can't play Blu-ray on android directly. Here this guide is for users to easily copy and play Blu-ray movies on Android. 

With the constant release of new systems like Android series, Android Tablets/Phones become more and more popular among people all over the world, such as Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Mega 5.8/6.3,Google Nexus 10/7, Nexus 4, Kindle Fire HD 8.9/7, HTC One, Galaxy S3/S4, etc. are the market hot spots. 

According to a recent survey, the marketing share of Android is now approaching Apple. People who have an Android Tablet or Phone on their hand are in large number. They are all perfect for watching videos on the go. Therefore, there is a great demand for backing up, ripping and watching DVD movies onto Android devices.

However, Android phones/tablets don't have the Blu-ray drive for playing Blu-ray movies (Read Android Support Video Format). That means, if you want to watch Blu-ray movies on your Android tablet or smartphone anytime and anywhere you like, you will need to rip/compress Blu-ray to Android compatible video formats like MP4 so that you can play your favorite DVD movies freely on your Android talet or phone. 

To rip Blu-ray to Android devices, you need to simply get Blu-ray to Android Ripper and accomplish your task in a few mouse clicks! But Which is the Top Blu-ray ripping software 2013-2014? I simply connected to the internet and googled "Blu-ray Ripper Reviews", "Best Blu-ray Ripping Software", "Best Blu ray ripper" for a few top 5 and top 10 lists in which this software was either 1st or 2nd in most every one I come across.

So Pavtube Blu-ray to Android Ripper should be your first choice for ripping newly released Blu-ray movies from physical discs to Android, iOS, Windows 8 tablets and smartphones, stream to various Media players and TVs and backup to hard disk, etc. (Mac version: Blu-ray to Android Ripper for Mac


1. Successful loading all Blu-rays. Unlike Xilisoft Blu-ray Ripper and Aimersoft Blu-ray Ripper which I tried but failed on loading Blu-rays, Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper recognizes all kinds of Blu-ray and DVD sources: BDMV folder, physical DVD, Blu-ray ISO, VIDEO_TS folder, DVD ISO and IFO file, protected Blu-ray Disc and unprotected Blu-ray Disc. Moreover, and it successfully detects main movie by default.

2. "Full disc copy" feature. Full disc copy is pretty fast, I tried once and it only took 30 minutes.

Tip: I used another Pavtube program called ByteCopy to backup my Blu-rays without quality loss. Meanwhile, several audio tracks and subtitles are preserved so I can switch language when watching movies.

3. Various output profile presets. 

4. Video Editor available. 

5. Other small but essential functions. Pavtube application takes advantage of the NVIDIA CUDA technology and AMD APP technology, and the conversion speed can be increased up to 6 times faster than ever before.

New features:

2. Support Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9 and Windows 8.1 Blue PC perfectly 

3. Support adding *.srt and *.ass subtitle

4. Support 3D SBS effect. (3D effect in saved MKV, MP4 and MOV files.)

My point of view:  I was searching for blu-ray ripper. I find Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper. It seemed easier to use and somehow had more professional feeling than DVDfab. Easy to use, and both DVDs and blu-rays can be ripped. Ripping is fast. Just seemed the best product I could find, for ripping DVDs and blu-rays. The trial seemed to work so I decided to buy.
