What are you folks using for encoding settings? I assume you are compressing your rips with x264.

I use Handbrake using the high profile setting and Constant Quality with 18 as the quality. This seems to drop, for the most part, the size by about half but keeps the quality to where I can't notice a difference. Only downside that I have found is that it does take a while to complete.

Does it retain HD audio?

It seems to default to all of the audio tracks that were ripped, but you can also go in to the audio tab and take out any of the ones you don't want.

With Handbrake I use --preset="Normal" and the default q=20 for Blu-ray, and --preset="High Profile", q=18 for DVD.

You need to pick out material that you know well, if only a chapter, and try it with different parameters. Trust your own eyes.

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.

How does this compare to using MakeMKV and Handbrake?

No compression means taking the full quality available from the disk. MakeMKV does that too. Handbrake is (usually) only used to further compress a video stream.

The new Sony Master Drive FALD tech allows for better longevity, higher light output and larger screens. It will probably come down in price faster than OLED.

I generally use MakeMKV and then also make a compressed version with Handbrake or the Plex Optimizer. That way I can watch the 1:1 rip locally while still having access to the compressed rip everywhere else on a wider variety of devices.

If it's still based on color filters with LCD shutters, you can keep it.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

Have you actually seen any of the Sony flagship sets from the last 18 months?

For my BDs I use the backup function of MakeMkv and then Clownbd for my 1:1 copy along with mkvtoolnix. If i need to encode I use RipBot. I use this because of the distributed encoding that it can do. I normally have 3 or 4 computers working on the same job.
