    To any DVD ripping - Handbrake quality - Lossless or default

    Hi there

    To any DVD rippers -- standard DVD's not Blu Ray's. I'm converting my huge mass of DVD's into MKV files to store on HDD and then give the physical DVD's away to the local charity shop -- I've got around 1000 collected over the years.

    HANDBRAKE converts the DVD's just fine ( I de-regionalize and decript first by using AnyDVD to create an ISO image which I then mount with W10 as a "Virtual DVD".

    Is there any significant degradation in setting the quality to 0 (i.e LOSSLESS) or leaving it as 8 in the default. The largest screen I'll be viewing these on is around 42 inches.

    I did try MAKEMKV but that program doesn't always work. Handbrake works just fine and I can double my throughput as I have it both on Windows and Linux machines -- The iso's can be accessed by Linux as shared files over a FAST network.

    I'm new to all this stuff but it's time I got rid of these DVD's -- My media server can play these remotely and Handbrake always works It's just difficult to get the best settings which is why I'm asking for anybody who does a lot of this type of thing to suggest settings etc.

    ("She who must be obeyed" ...... wants more space !!!!!!!!!! so I've been nagged into clearing out DVD's.

    Sorry cant help on Handbrake, not used it for a number of years

    If you don't mind paying for software, have a look at Winx DVD (unfortunately don't think its available for Linux), has lots of presets so easy to use and does the decrypting then copying all by itself, no additional programmes needed

    Hi there

    Thanks --I'll have a look at that one too. - I really need to get rid of 1000(or more) DVD's --amazing how much space they have --and all my video can now be played via a media) server (I use both MEZZMO and PLEX.

    I don't have any Blu Ray's so standard DVD rips are fine.

    I am doing exactly the same, ripping all my dvd's, but its a slow process

    Mainly use Mezzmo, but been trying out Emby (similar to Plex) and Media Portal (very nice but no DLNA option)
