Re: DVD video to the PB

Yes, with a caveat.  There is software out available for PCs (and probably Macs too) that can convert DVD or Blu-Ray video to video formats that the Playbook will support.  If the DVD or Blu-Ray disc is protected with DRM (Digital Rights Management), you'll also need software that can bypass that protection.  Bypassing copy protection might be illegal depending on where you are.

Re: DVD video to the PB

I have heard form a few friends that using HandBrake and encoding to MP4 works well.
