    What settings is everyone using for Handbrake? Using the defaults, the half dozen movies I've ripped have come out to a little over a gig. They look great, but is it overkill? I could experiment with smaller sizes, but thought I'd see what everyone here is using.

    I usually set it to take up about 600-700MB If I want several movies on it at the same time and I think the quality is fine for watching.

    I use Handbrake's 'iPod High Res' preset for most films, because it looks decent enough on my MacBook, and it is iPod and iPhone compatible, however with my absolute favourite films, I have one version ripped with the 'Apple TV' setting, and another with the 'iPhone' setting. I keep the other settings at the default, except for upping the audio to 160 kbps.
