Looking for opinions on programs to change video formats/ resize video
 
Hi all, I'm wanting to back up my kids' DVD collections because lets face it: DVD's and frisbees just look too much alike.......Anyway, I can rip the DVD's fine (usining k9copy), but 5GB seems excessive to me for a 1:1 copy.

I'd like to know what other people are using to shrink final file size. Also changing file formats from .aviso that I can just use these same files on the little personal video players the kids got for Christmas would be great. They support a number of file types which escapes me at the moment.

I would recommend ffmpeg, which I have used a lot for audio conversion, though not very much for video conversion.
