If you convert, please don't use Divx...Use the H264 codec...The picture is MUCH, MUCH better than Divx/Xvid...
I don't rip them to ISO's because then the My Movies plugin for MCE doesn't work very well with them. It really slows it down a lot. And ripping them as an ISO won't save anymore space...I guess it's just nice to have the whole movie in a single file...

Regarding compressing DVD movies...what program should I use? Right now I have all my movies imported on my hard drive in their VIDEO_TS folders. Is there a program that will let me pick this folder and then just compress the main video part into a single .avi file?
