I'm on a flight to the UK soon and want to get some of my movies (mainly blu-ray movies) on ASUS Eee Pad Transformer for the flight. Tried some Blu-ray rippers but all creates HUGE files- 10GB+ for one movie. Would some one please advise a ripper for Eee Pad Transformer 101? I would be pleased if I can compress a Blu-ray to 1.5-3GB and still keep 720p HD quality. Any suggestions?:blink:

It’s not the ripper, but the preset format that affects file size. Best format settings per my experience:
Video
Codec- H.264
Resolution- 1280x720/1280x800 (HD)
Bitrate- 1500kbps
Framerate- 30fps

Audio
Codec- AAC
Sampling rate- 44.1khz
Bitrate- 160kbps
Channel- stereo

With the above settings a Blu-ray movie can be compressed to 1.5-2.5GB depends on the movie length. As to Blu-ray ripper, I also recommend Pavtube mainly because it allows you set format settings to get desired file size and quality. And other Blu-ray rippers let you rip Blu-ray only but this one rips both Blu-ray and DVD. If you have CUDA compliant graphics card installed, the ripping speed could be fairly fast.

Thanks so much for your help. I’ll try pavtube later and see how it works.

It took me a while to find the settings but all turned out fine. The Blu-ray Avatar results in a .mp4 file of 1.8GB, and plays stunning pictures on Eee Pad.Thanks again for your settings and recommend. Very helpful.
