Hello Long time lurker, first time poster. So, I've read alot of posts on handbrake settings but they always seem to involve someone wanting to have the output file on multiple devices. Here is my situation. Finally pulled the trigger on a mac mini to be used as a media center. Running plex, everything is dandy. However, I am beginning to finally rip my dvds and after ripping 50 or so I am beginning to realize that keeping video_ts folders is going to become too much data to store. I know there will be a loss of quality when compressing the files to mp4/mkv etc but I am looking for guidance as to what are the best settings to get a high quality file strictly to be used on the mac mini. The file can be around 2Gbs etc, but the 4-5Gbs per video_ts folders are killing me. Current workflow will be MTR 3.0 > Handbrake > Plex. (unless there is a better workflow I am overlooking. I know this has been talked about to death but it always seems to go off topic to someone running it on an iphone/ATV/ mac mini /microwave oven and wanting one file. Thanks for any advice!
