How do you manage your digital movies? (size/etc)
I have started making a copy of some of my favorite movies and shows (legally purchased), to bring on a flash drive to watch on my 10" tablet while traveling (A500, 32gb).
Last year, began using a program, Aimersoft DVD Ripper, to take them from my DVD and make digital copies for travel, and there are a ton of options for default sizes for different devices.
But, when I dial it down for space, obviously, video quality decreases. So, I'm planning on keeping a media HDD at home, for the tv, do I need to make 2 copies of any movie? IE a full HD version for home, and a stripped down SD for the road?
Is there a simple method I'm missing? Or is a true HD video a ton of space?
For example, just loaded "Hot Fuzz", theatrical DVD release, no special extras and such, the default settings for a 10" tablet bring it to a total size of about 1.1gb. Where as, for a true HD MP4, it shows over 8gb.
Is that right? Opinions? (I haven't even looked at the BluRays yet.....)
