Just curious what everyone is using as their storage format of choice. I'm sure it will vary depending on the content type.
DVD material, for example, do you convert to avi/mkv (which is possible without losing much/if any quality and cut file size in half)? Use disc images? If you use disc images, are they untouched, or movie only? Also, which tools are used?
Just trying to get an idea of the "norm" and form a plan for my new server size.
