Hey, I have just started to rip all my dvd's on to the computer using handbrake (sometimes with a mtr copy so that I can queue multiple copies encoding whilst at work/sleep). I'm just about finishing my TV boxsets and using TVDB have an iTunes TV Shows Library that I'm pretty happy with. I'm still not 100% happy with the rip quality though, not sure if I'm just being paranoid. The TV shows have been mostly ripped on the following settings FORMAT: MP4 Codec: MP-4 Video / AAC Audio Framerate: Same as Source Encoder: FFMPeG Average Bit rate: 3,000 with 2 pass encode. Each hour episode is coming out at about 1gb average. Can I get better quality than this? I'm not to fussed about the TV shows but I'm going to start my movies soon and with iTunes not importing DVD images/full Video TS copies I'd like to get the best I can. Space is not an issue as my last 1TB HDD cost me just £60 (external) and I eventually want to get me a Drobo. My eventual aim is to play everything through Plex as I'm not really a fan of Front Row so is there any need to encode to put into iTunes do you think? Are there any advantages to having them in iTunes? Sorry if this is a bit garbled as I have lots of questions but not to sure how to ask and what order to ask them Thanks for any help. Scott p.s I have no intention of ever buying an TV it would be a mac mini running plex again if I wanted to expand my media network.
