Here's a question... Anyone consider custom storage for the discs after ripping? (I keep the discs for back up in addition to the NAS Raid protection.)

I thought for a moment about using the slim line CD cases and then making a number scheme for the discs in storage.

I guess I realize though I live in a fairly large house not a tiny apartment ... I guess I don't need to reduce the amount of room the discs take up in storage.

Mine will be in custom shelving outside my theater once it's done. For now, they're packed in a couple of boxes in my office.

Most of mine go in storage containers in a storage facility. Of course that can be a pain if you need to rip them again. Like recently when I ran a rebuild tree command in unRAID and I forgot to put it in maintenance mode first. So I lost the content on that drive. So I need to re-rip those titles again.

To save significant space, one has to first be willing to throw away the original BD cases -- a significant energy barrier for many. For high density disk storage I put the disks in combinations of single and double-sided Tyvek storage sleeves with a labeled tab on the top and store the sleeves vertically in simple Snap-n-Store disk boxes. I can store 125 disks in sleeves in one of these inexpensive boxes. They are covered to keep out light and dust and they stack nicely in a cool, dry closet. For me, organization is simply alphabetical.

All of my discs are stored in their original cases. I'm more concerned about digital storage space than the physical space required to store the boxes.

Thanks,.... Just getting started with this... like I said I think I did about 400 and that's about a third of what I've got here. It will take me maybe years to get all the Hard Drives I need and I don't really plan to stop buying new releases anyways... ha ha.

Just seemed like I ought to really try to minimize the overall space of the physical copies.... I think I'll continue to use boxes and keep them vertical in original cases....

But, I was interesting to hear what others have done about it.

I have dvdfab bluray copy lifetime. I getting a mac next week and was wondering if the lifetime is transferable to the mac version.

I put all of mine on old 50 or 100 disc spools which go into a storage bin in the closet.

So I was playing around with non-burned in subs the other day and a few questions came up.

1. Holy crap, them are some huge fonts!
2. Why are they positioned in the letterbox and how do I change their position?
3. Did I mention how big the font was? How can I change font type, size and color?

All of the subtitle text formatting is done by the player. What playback method and are you using?

That would be highly efficient. I may be into something like that. Once on the server the discs are just back ups and I don't think I would have much trouble getting rid of packaging and cover art and so on in the name of being much better organized.

I think of those types of spools that I've thrown out over the years.

The slim CD boxes in packs of 100 don't take up too much room. But they take up a lot of room compared to the spool idea.

Getting rid of the original cases removes most sell back ability but then, I don't think I ever want to sell back my movies and when I do they will be nearly worthless aside from the odd out of print title that actualy can gain in value for a while.

Not with Blu-Ray it isn't. The subs on Blu-Ray are PGS format which is a series of bitmap images.

You can move them out of the letterbox area using BDSup2Sub during the ripping process.

Changing the size and/or font would require OCR which I've never tried.

Thanks. I've been messing around with SRT subs all week so they were fresh in my mind. I absolutely got that one wrong.
