This is my first post, please go easy on me. I’ve been doing research into ripping my entire movie collection to my NAS (which lead me to this fabulous forum) and I’m wondering if DVDFab is the right choice for me. Specifically, is DVDFab able to rip a DVD for the purposes of:
[li]Backing the movie up to my NAS hard drive[/li][li]Creating an UNCOMPRESSED file of the movie for playing through my XBox 360 on my home theater from the aforementioned NAS hard drive[/li][li]AND creating a compressed file for both my Archos 605 and my iTouch?[/ol]Also, do I really need to create three or four separate files per DVD?[/li][ol]
[li]VOB files for backup[/li][li]MP4 files for Archos and iTouch (Compressed)[/li][li]Files for 360 (Uncompressed, or as little compression as possible)[/ol]There must be a better way of storing the DVD for my needs, but I’m just too green to see it. Perhaps someone knows a method for viewing VOB files on the 360, or creating only 1 compressed file for both players? The fewer files I have on the NAS the more room I have for my extensive movie collection.[/li]
To further complicate this scenario, I’m using the NAS and TwonkyVision to store and play my media across the network to my home theater, so using media player software that can view VOB files on my computer as the backend of the 360 isn’t feasible.
