gang I'm still in the noob category for authoring/editing/converting/streaming/storing multimedia but climbing the hill.
I use and reco DVD Flick for converting some of the common video filetypes [e.g. .avi] to format for burning to DVD, but this question goes the opposite way.
What software, and to what format, is best for hard-storage, nas etc my collection so it can be available to home theater or other playback on my lan?
I've no issues with decryption - its the step of taking the vid & audio ts folders and then converting to ??? fileformat du jour. I tried one of the popular free packages, converting to mp4 format and it stank.... really really bad - terrible quality.
what about the free version of DIVX converter?
