I use the smart ripper to rip DVDs and then i use DVDX to convert. Im trying to use 640X480 resolustion and an alright quality. I've downloaded plenty of movies and stuff but they all have awsome quality and fit on one or two cds. all the files i have created are using four to five cds. i dont know what to change to get this formula correct. I have also looked at the properties of the files that i have downloaded but some of the options arent the same as the settings i can change on DVDx. any suggestions about formula or the programs im using? I'd really appreaciate it.
