Trying to rip a dvd with DVD::RIP it uses all the free space
(running FC2, using DVD::RIP newest .50.18 or sothing like that).
Hi, I was trying the other day to rip a dvd in my laptop, I only have 5 gigs total, and most of the times just around 1.7 gigs free.
I used some options, one is to encode on the fly, cause I thought it would prevent from having multiple files thus using more space.
Also in the Transcode tab, I chose: Target media 1 x 700 MB, and Target size 700 MB, for video codec I chose xvid.
In the Calculated Storage section of Transcode, I checked that Audio + Video added up to 700.
I thought this would keep me out of trouble, so I ran this and it easily used up all my free space, about 1.8 gigs at that time.
Do you know of something I can do?, I thought I could start messing with the size and width or perhaps video frame rate, perhaps the de-interlace mode?
*Also, notice that encoding on the fly disables AC3, subtitles and some other things that I do not understand, so that isnt taking more space.
(Now, I believe the program has the option of burning a cd, probably as it encodes, however my laptop cannot burn dvds. )
Finally, you might be thinking that I should use a differentr computer to do this, one with enough free space to do this painlessly, however that is also not an option.
All answers will be appreciated.
