First off, thanks to all the informative posts on this site and especially those who helped me with the subtitle difficulties. I've now nearly completely converted my DVDs and Blurays for our Apple TV using MakeMKV then Handbrake then adding metadata and soft subtitles to each file. I've had two older computers working full time around the clock for several weeks - much to the annoyance of my wife (our 16 month points at the corner of usb external drives, computers, and wires and says "dada"!). It became a bit of an obsession (and was oddly satisfying for some reason) Anyways, I've vowed that from now on, we are just buying everything thru itunes and I'll dismantle this ugly workstation. But..... When we are out shopping, I cant help but notice the price is often better for the discs AND I'm guaranteed to have subtitles (which is more often not the case with itunes) On the one hand, itunes quality is quite good and may be futureproofed?(ie as technology improves, maybe I'll continue to have access to the best version?). And, possibly, they will continue to obtain more subtitled material? Plus, i don't need a computer on somewhere to stream my stuff. What do you think? Keep buying and ripping or go totally to the itunes cloud?
