Hi, I had a bit of a brainwave recently and bought a ps3 to basically be my entertainment center, So far have copied all my movies onto it no problem and can watch them fine. Each Dvd is between 2-3gig which is large but I dont really mind as much as the quality is good and theres over 100 of them. Now Im up to my tv series and this is where things get a bit tricky, I am using Handbrake to encode the video to the preset PS3 specs and its not too bad, takes probably 20-30 minutes for a movie. When I select tv series I can choose the episodes indivudually but the file size is too big usually over 1 gig for just a single episode.
I've seen good quality Divx videos off the net that are usually around 350mb so i'm now using Divx converter which is then converting them taking over an hour each episode. My question is am I doing a step thats not needed? I feel converting them twice has good results and such but there must be a faster way? At this rate I wont have them done till next year.
