Hello, I've rippe about tens DVD in mp4 using following settings : resolution : SD (keep original) frame rate : keep original bitrate : 2500 kbps encode : h264 normal The result are 1.8Go files for around 1:30 movies. if I compare the quality between original DVD and the result mp4 file, the quality of the mp4 file is under DVD quality. what would be a correct setting (bitrate?) to have same quality as the DVD ?

Generally, higher quality means larger video size. If you want to reduce the output video size, you can click Settings to adjust the output video parameters like resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc. to get a balance between HD and normal.

Hi, I just wondered if there was a optimum way to rip the DVD for like to like quality without making the size of the file too large. I have converted the same film several times using different methods ie Anroid general options or HD MP4 and normal MP4, there seems to be a lack of quality for the normal but the HD is obviously great but huge files are created. Is there a happy medium?
