I'm kinda new to toying around with video files (ripping, burning etc.) I use mactheripper to rip dvds, and often times i use roxio toast to convert the video_ ts folder to an mp4 file. I was told that was the best way to convert the video while keeping video quality and also save space. Usually i get a them down to 1.5 gigs. Lately i have been downloading torrents of movies and noticed that i have been getting avi files of movies about 700mb. Some of these movies look better than the ones i convert to mp4 with toast. My question is if my way was the best way to handle these files. is there something else i can do to convert videos without having the video quality suffer. I use roxio toast 9 and it has many converting options.
