I have a DVD collection of about 200 DVDs that I spent months backing up 5 years ago. I ripped using MacTheRipper and compressed using DVD2OneX onto single layer DVDs. Now I want to put on my films on a hard drive and get rid of the DVDs. I would like to compress to a high quality standard to reduce file size. Although I rarely watch anything but the actual movie, I do sometimes appreciate the menu and special features. If it's not worth it I can do without but does anyone have a workflow that preserves these features? I've looked around and tried searching but haven't found anything. I'm assuming the reason I haven't found anything is because if you compress you are left simply with the single file of the one title you extracted and nothing else. I 'could' delete the original .vob files of the main title afterward preserving the menu and features in the VIDEO_TS folder (for later playback) and I could place the compressed movie within the main title folder for playback itself (next to VIDEO_TS) but is there a more elegant solution? Would .mp4, h.264 in .mov wrapper, or mkv be the most current standard (or any other)? Or is this not worth it, and should I just save my already backed up and compressed (inefficiently with mpeg-2 by DVD2OneX) 4.7Gb DVDs onto the hard drive without further compression? I've read the lengthy sticky on Automating DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging) for Mac OS X 10.6 which is an amazing write up but it intimidates me greatly and doesn't address this! Is it easier than the tutorial makes it out to be?
