I am looking for the best way to encode my DVDs with decent quality and small file size. I currently use DVD Shrink and after encoding them to 4.5 gigabytes, I then re-encode them with DVD Shrink reducing them as far as it lets me (50%), so I have them in VOB files format at about 2 gigs a movie. I am not a video-phile and that qualiy is fine for me. But would it smaller with similar quality to encode them in AVI or MPEG? I have heard of 800mg movie files that are good quality. I would love to get them down under a gig. What is the best way to encode them and keep them small while keeping decent quality? Also, is VOB files the only way to encode that allows you to use the subtitles menu? Meaning, I want to have the ability to turn the subtitles on and off when I want to. Will AVI or MPEG let me do that, or will the subtitles be permanently fixed? Thanks. jason.
