Guide on ripping, converting DVD to VLC media player for Android
Simply follow this guide to get the solution to get your VLC media player to play encrypted DVD discs on Android.
If you are switching to Android Devices or want to install a reliable media player for your Android Phone or Tablet, VLC is the best. As far as we know, VLC 1.0 allows you to record DVDs to your computer. There is also an overlooked feature in VLC that allows you to rip your DVDs as well.
However, VLC Media Player comes with powerful abilities to convert video/DVD format, it still has some drawbacks. For instance, the supported output formats are limited, and sometimes it can't recognize the copy protected DVD and fails to convert. Plus, it's too complicated for a newbie to rip DVD with VLC Media Player- it has a relatively complex ripping process.
Searched widely and I got some tech support for getting DVD movie into VLC media player for playing correctly on Android.

Step 1. Load DVD files
Install and launch the top DVD to Android Converter. Click the "DVD" icon to load DVD movie. After the DVD files are loaded, you can preview them on the right viewing window and take snapshots of your favorite movie scene. ISO and IFO files are also supported.
Tip: If you need to rip DVD with wanted subtitles and audio track, you can click the drop down menu after "Subtitles" and "Audio" to select your desired tracks.
Step 2. Choose output format
Select a VLC Player friendly format, e.g. H.264 .mp4 for conversion. Basically the "Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4)" is a universal format for Android tablets and smartphones.
Tip: If you think the video size this not suitable for your Android Tablet or Phone, you can first choose any one of the provided type, then change the settings. Please remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in bigger file size, and lower visible quality loss. See the following picture:
