I've now built up a whole bunch of SD video - over 300GB already - and i'm now getting a canon hf10, so i'll be adding HD stuff to further bloat my library, and i'll run out of disk space soon.
I'm wondering - how do you folks all manage your captured video?
I'm currently keeping mine as AVI files @ the orginal DV quality. I'm splitting them all into one-scene-per-file with AVCutty. But i have can't find a decent way to tag them all and keep them organised like i do with my pictures.
I could convert them to mp4 etc and get the size down. Is this good practice? Or do you keep yours in their original format?
I could create movies from them and then compress the movies (i have a Popcorn Hour so i don't want them on DVD etc, i will stream them). Then do you delete the original clips, or keep everything twice?
Do you make movies up from all your home video - or just leave them as clips and browse them?
I guess i'm just wondering what other folks do....?
