    Worthy of HD??? Well I really don't see that much diffrence but I do see one so my votes is to digitally remaster all Godzilla and other giant monster movies and put them in HD an well as Space Giants, Ultraman and Johnny Sokko.

    Aside from potential bitrate discrepancies, what's the difference? Same res.

    I try to get everything in hi-def these days. Why? Because soon hi-def will be low-def, and then you'll be glad you at least have what you have.

    one of my many questions ...

    what would a normal file size be if you ripped a normal dvd compared to a HD/blueray disk?

    In what format? DivX, MKV, MPEG4................... A lot of choices so what you want is the best compression format with the least loss.

    LOL! ummmm I do not know ... we have not talked about formatting yet, have we? Just how to do it and that you have many choices?

    What is the best one with the least loss from ripping it? Just put size in 2nd place of importance for now...

    I personally use MKV but it is not the best. As to what the best is? You got me and I am sure there are 10 answers out there and 50 reasons per answer.

    ripping is 1:1 thats taking hte DVD files off the disk and putting them on your HDD. So 3.5-8GB depending on the DVD.

    As Kev pointed out different formats are different DivX, h/x.264, mpeg2 etc). Technically anyone of them could be the same size.

    AVI, MKV,MP4 are all containers and can have any of hte differnet formats included in them. MKV is the best container as far as I am concerned supports chapters, integrated subs and a plethora of encoding options

    I like x264 encoding at around 5-600MB/hr for DVD (480P). 1-1.5GB/hr for mHD/720P and 4GB/hr for 1080p shrinks

    It really depends on the source though as some films can be compressed much better than others and not lose any quality.


    HD Movie list

    Every Action or SciFi movie

    I dont really watch much else on purpose...

    Beer drinking is like finger painting. When you are young, you do not care what you stick your fingers into as long as you got to do it. When you are older, eww Heineken? I really want a beer that comes from the factory skunked?

    Ripping to video file this is accurate (avatar @ 1080p is 12gb). Most STD DVD quality is 0.8 -1.5 gb.

    Once ripped, it should be recoded (if in vob form) to avi, MKV, or MP4. See the other thread. Remember they are the shells not the codecs.
