I just recently downloaded a ripping tool called #1 DVD Ripper and its pretty user friendly. It lets me chose whether to rip the DVD into Mpeg-1(VCD), Mpeg-2(SVCD), or Avi(Divx). So i've got my DVD(Midnight Express), I do not have a DVD burner so I want to turn the DVD into Mpeg-1 and make a VCD out of it. The thing is that the estimated file size of the mpeg-1 file after ripping is going to be 1089.4 MB, or roughly a gig. If i rip the movie into a mpeg-2 file it is going to be 2239.9 MB, lets just that thats a lot. Anyway, is there anyway(setting or something else) that will allow me to rip the DVD to a Mpeg-1 file small enough to fit on a 700Mb Cd-R disc? or am I going to be stuck with burning two Cd-r's? any help would be grealy appreciated.
