i dont have many dvd's but i sure have ALOT of SVCD's/XviD's as these (mainly talking about XviD's) are close to dvd's image quality at a fraction of the file size... like 1.4GB (2 cd rip) vs dvd's 4-7GB or so per movie... and pretty damn close to same quality as the dvd for your average 2hour movie or so.
so for me XviD is pretty much the way to go.
Except for the fact that your not actually paying for these movies,
When you buy the Dvd is comes with some nice features: Case, Dvd(s), book.
So size doesn't make a difference if own the dvd, since they do all the work for you and place it on a dvd.
renting and copying != owning
