Thanks again for your help
If you want to try this you should run experiments to see if the difference between the original and compressed versions matter to you. I picked out a few chapters from titles I knew well and ran a series of tests. You should do the same rather than using someone else's judgments.
Or, if you are very skeptical about this or don't want to spend the time, just skip it and stick with the uncompressed versions. That is certainly the safest course.
I use HandBrake for compression:
- for DVD: High profile, q=18
- for Blu-ray: Normal profile, q=20
