I generally use high profile, slow encode, constant quality 16 for DVDs. Blu-Rays are the same, except quality 18-20 (sometimes 21). Lately, I've started experimenting with the Plex Optimizer. I keep the 1:1 rip from MakeMKV and then use the Optimizer to create a second file at ~12Mbps.
I don't care about apathy
