How to Watch DVDs on your iPhone

My previous post was How to read books on your iPhone, and I’ll open this post with the same paragraph:

I’m a proud iPhone owner, as evident by reading my Web site posts.
The iPhone is truly a work of art. A revolution, rather than an evolution, in mobile phone slash PDA slash personal communicator. It has some serious killer features no other phone offers.
Still – I keep switching between the iPhone and the Nokia N95 because the iPhone has some super annoying quirks as a PDA.

However - I keep using my iPhone all the time since I discovered it’s simply revolutionary in its ability to be a small mobile entertainment unit.
You probably checked out some movie trailers on the YouTube application so far, and realized it’s cool watching movies on your iPhone. However, you probably wished there was a way you can watch DVD or DiVX movies you already own on your iPhone and not having to buy anything from iTunes.

I just came across a great post explaining how to watch DVDs on your iPod, iPhone, PSP, etc. with HandBrake.

HandBrake is an free open-source utility for Windows , Mac and Linux that converts your DVDs for viewing on iPods, iPhones, Sony PSPs, and other portable media players.

Check it out.

    what if I just want to load some DIVX/AVI movie file into my iPhone, and not rip a DVD? I tried to use HandBrake but it seems to be asking to load up some DVD format.
    Can you give some 1-2-3 guide to take an existing DIVX/AVI file and get it through iTunes into the iPhone?
