    You could strip out audio tracks extras etc, other than that you'd need to re-encode the footage, same as on a DVD

    What does re-encoding do? Is there a thread somewhere that shows how to do this?

    Re-encoding basically means recreating the same video file with lower settings for video resolution and audio for smaller file size :)

    When dealing with HD stuff, by definition, you need plenty more storage space. Thankfully, prices of HDDs are falling all the time :)

    when you shrink a dvd to go from a dvd9 to a dvd5 you are effectively re-encoding it

    back to stripping out audio and extras,

    how can you tell which is the main movie and the audio you want?

    I'm all for stripping out the trailers and french souindtrack if I can

    You don't need a lot of HDDs. They have 500GB, 750GB, and 1024GB HDDs.

    remember when going about to make it a smaller file quality loss may be there too so that means no reason to have HD-DVD's or BD's files.

    Yeah, compressing a high definition file makes no sense since it defeats the purpose.

    I don't want to compress the file, just remove the extra junk and leave the movie with the audio

    Currently there is nothing that I am aware of that anydvd hd that can do this all you can do is the whole disc currently. I am sure elby is working on a HD/BD version of CloneDVD2.

    I've heard absolutely nothing about Elby working on a HD/BD program.

    Well compressing a HD movie would be beneficial to those such as myself who only have a 720p monitor. but then again that is recoding not compressing.

    you could just delete all files except the evo files, and even most of those could go. just keep the movie files.

    If you can't take advantage of the HD, then compressing it is ok.

    It makes tons of sense. I have seen 2 gig and 4.5 gig x.264 conversions of 300 and they look fantastic. 5-10x more movies on my HD this way.

    OK, try to convince Slysoft or Elby of this.
