I don't really want to have the clunky and apparently not completely reliable sony VGP-XL1B2 dvd juke box connected to my computer plus the added cost is pretty high. Also the file size on the dvd's with the 1:1 rip make it so you would need alot of storage to have your entire library of dvd's. Since storage is costly I was wondering if some sort of transcode function could be added so it can be converted to xvid or divx to save space here is a linux program I found that can do that but I would like some integration like the rip function maybe a rip and transcode button too. http://freshmeat.net/projects/dvdrip/?branch_id=20118&release_id=250174
Thanks for your time. If this is just crazy for some reason or not aloud please disregard this.
