Unless DVDShrink has compression that I am unaware of...I should have no compression. Keep in mind that I am only ripping the movie, an audio file, and 1 subtitle file. I am getting rid of all the menus and extras. For example, I ripped Anchorman as a test and my total file size was just over 4 GB. I believe the video itself with no compression was just under the 4 GB. I would like to cut this down more if I could, but I was hoping someone may know a "preferred" level of compression so I would not have to rip DVDs over and over at various compression.
