Dutch software company Makayama has released "DVD to Mobile (Smartphone Edition)". This software lets users convert a DVD to a Smartphone and watch it in great quality, with stereo sound and in full screen landscape mode. The company says a memory card as small as 128 Mb is sufficient to store a full length feature film.
Users can watch their DVDs on the go, on any Windows Mobile Smartphone, such as the Orange SPV-series. The software installs an encoding package on a PC with Windows XP, and a free player on the mobile phone. Users insert a DVD in the drive of their PC and with only two clicks, the software turns it into a super small movie file, which will play on the provided media player.
The free tryout version allows users to convert 5 minutes of a DVD. Makayama promisses a Symbian version for Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones will be out next month
