    I haven't seen any instructions on here about converting DVD Blu Ray to Nero Digital AVC MP4 format on here, So I decided to create one so others who do not know how to can. Doing this allows you to rip DVDs/Blu Rays to your Hard Drive. This can come in handy if you want to stream/play movies to you AVC MP4 compatible devices.
    Supported Devices:
    Xbox 360(with optional update)
    PS3(don't have one, but have tried it out on a PS3 before)
    PSP(with firmware that supports avc)

    For Xbox 360(with optional Update)
    (DVD)
    1) Open DVDFab and select Main Movie.
    2) Insert you DVD and let DVDFab scan the disc(it should automatically select the longest video on the disc)
    3) Select what audio track that you want(you can only select one since the Xbox 360 only supports one audio track when in AVC format) Also make sure that NO subtitles are selected since the xbox 360 also doesn't support subtitles in AVC format.
    4) Rip the main movie to your hard drive.
    5) Once DVDFab is done ripping, close it and open Nero 9(or above)
    6) select Nero Re-encode and then select encode main movie to Nero Digital. Then Import the main movie to Nero. Once it is done importing, go to the tab on the right and select Nero Digital AVC and then select what size you want and Nero will tell you if it can do that size.
    7) Under setting select crop and make sure that it says 0 for all sides so noting gets cut out on the screen. (optional) you can go under settings and change the frames to 15fps(doing this can make the size of the file smaller).
    8) Select start and let Nero re-encode the movie to Nero Digitl.

    For PS3
    (DVD)
    1) follow the Instructions above, but instead of selecting Nero Digital AVC in step 6, Select Sony and then PS3(this will create a PS3 compatible file)

    For PSP
    (DVD)
    1) follow the Instructions above, but instead of selecting Nero Digital AVC in step 6, Select Sony and then PSP(this will create a PSP compatible file)

    For Xbox 360(with optional Update)
    (Blu Ray)
    1) Open DVDFab and select Main Movie.
    2) Insert you Blu Ray and let DVDFab scan the disc(it should automatically select the longest video on the disc)
    3) Select what audio track that you want(you can only select one since the Xbox 360 only supports one audio track when in AVC format) Also make sure that NO subtitles are selected since the xbox 360 also doesn't support subtitles in AVC format.
    4) Rip the main movie to your hard drive.
    5) Once DVDFab is done ripping, select finished and eject you Blu Ray. Then select Blu Ray ripper and select M2TS Pass through. once you have done that, open the folder that contains the main movie in DVDFab and let the ripper take all of the main movie files and connect them together as one file (in order).
    6) Open Nero and select Nero Re-encode and then select encode main movie/ files to Nero Digital. Then select advanced options and enable HD support.
    7) Import the main movie (m2ts) to Nero. Once it is done importing, go to the tab on the right and select Nero Digital AVC and then select what size you want and Nero will tell you if it can do that size.
    8) Under setting select crop and make sure that it says 0 for all sides so noting gets cut out on the screen. (optional) you can go under settings and change the frames to 15fps(doing this can make the size of the file smaller).
    9) Select start and let Nero re-encode the movie to Nero Digitl.

    (some Blu Ray movies use VC1 instead of H264 for the movie, format, So you will have to recode the movie to h264. To do this in DVDFab, rip the main movie to a BD25 and DVDFab will recode it to h264(if the movie is smaller than 25gb, then select BD9 to recode it)
    (If the movie uses AC3 for the audio track, you can skip this part)(some Blu rays contain HD-DTS for there audio track, you have to use TSmuxer to separate the Video and Audio files( this way you can access the HD-DTS file and recode it to ac3 with EAC3toGUI2 since Nero doesn't support HD-DTS unless you buy the plugin)(Once it is converted to AC3, recombine the tracks using TSmuxer to create a M2TS file)

    For PS3
    (Blu Ray)
    1) follow the Instructions above, but instead of selecting Nero Digital AVC in step 7, Select Sony and then PS3(this will create a PS3 compatible file)

    For PSP
    (Blu Ray)
    1) follow the Instructions above, but instead of selecting Nero Digital AVC in step 7, Select Sony and then PSP(this will create a PSP compatible file)

    You can convert Blu Rays/DVDs natively in DVDFab, but it tends to limit the size of the output file to only 870mb. This can cause problems if you are trying to convert a Blu Ray to a 4gb/8gb AVC file(such as for dvdr)

    You can now play both DVD and Blu Ray in avc format on your avc compatible device.
