I’m currently trying to copy my entire DVD collection to my Computer for my own personal easy access and storage, but am having a few problems when it comes to control over the file sizes that I am archiving.
For example I just started out trying to copy the Blade Trilogy box set, and the file size results was as follows;
Blade 1 = 1.3 GB
Blade 2 = 1.8 GB
Blade 3 = 2.8 GB
I used the exact same process for all 3 films yet ended up with much bigger files than I was hoping which where not consistent with each other, I was hoping to use around 1 GB for each film file.
The process I am using to Rip and Convert the films is as follows;
- DVD Decrypter v22.214.171.124 (freeware)
- Convert VOB to AVI v1.7 (freeware)
Step 1> Use DVD Decrypter to copy the film to my HD as a single VOB file, after selecting only the main film files
Step 2> Use Convert VOB to AVI to convert the VOB file on my HD to a DivX File
At no point with the software I am using do I get the chance to control the file output size.
I was wondering if maybe I am missing an option in the software I am using to control the file output size, or is there another Free Software Product I can use to choose the file size’s I am looking for?
Is it possible to Shrink the DivX files I am creating to a more suitable size?
Are threre any better options or free software Products I can use to get the results I’m looking for, which are High Quality Film files at around 1GB each.
Thanks for you Help
