Ya, I admit it's very likely overkill. I just dread ending up like I did with my MP3 at some point wondering oh why did I rip at such a crappy bitrate while doing them all over again!
I may try a few others settings and see how it looks. Playing with BDinfo now BTW. Not seeing where I can figure out one track from another I'm afraid. I CAN see the different tracks but figuring out that one is the say Theatrical vs the Director vs the Unrated not so much. Playing them and looking at times would work though - if I had BD playback software on this machine :o I usually just go for the longest track but now with the ability to do branches I'm wanting more.
I have read that in order to support BD menus some sort of license has to be purchased. Since the menus are Java, I thought, this really confuses me. I and likely the original poster, sure wish this was more like ripping a standard DVD!
