So I’ve finally hit the point where I no longer care about physical media. I never thought it’d happen but right now I’d much rather have access to my movies from anywhere in the house without digging out a plastic disc.
The problem this leaves me with is that I have a whole lot of work ahead of me to rip all these movies, and little knowledge of how to do it. I’ve got all the hardware I need, but the software side seems particularly under documented online. Pretty much every video or article I’ve found reads like a paid advertisement, which is troubling to me when all of the options seem to cost in the vicinity of $100.
Thus I turn to you all with pleas for help:
What application are you using if any, and are there any specific settings you use to get a good balance between file size and quality?
