Hello all! I'm converting my family's home movies from VCR to DVD. I have a Toshiba unit which burns the VHS directly onto the DVD but I'm wanting to now rip the videos from the DVD to the hard drive so I can cut them up. I want to use whatever codec will give me good video/audio quality while at the same time cutting down on size (I can use MPEG2 but the files are huge and my hard drive doesn't have enough space to accomidate them all). Any advice or favorite codecs for my situation? Thanks!
