Hi Y'all,
I'm looking at building a lil DVD collection and I was thinking of the best compression format for the movies that would take the least space on my hard drive. I'm kinda torn between between .avi, .mpg, .vob (I think would take the most), .flv..... Which format would offer the best compression for DVD movies, offering the most compression without compromising quality??? And what software do I use to convert DVD movies to this 'compressed' format. Answers & link to helpful articles, comments, how-tos would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Guys!!!

I would suggest .flv. There are a lot of video formats that are compressed. As to exactly what software to use, I'm not quite sure on that one.
