EDIT: Thank you so much everyone! There’s so much help for me here, and I’ll recommend anyone with similar question as me to read the comments

Basically title.

I have the DVDs and I have the hardware to burn them to my PC.

But the file size is too much. What software would be ideal to get the best quality with the lowest file size?

I’m going for file sizes per movie at around 2-3gb max.

    If it’s rare content, it would be nice if you uploaded it to the Internet Archive

      Maybe it’s rare but mostly it’s because I don’t have access to any private trackers in my language.

        If you can find the correct video though that will cut your encoding time way down. Then you’d only need to pull the audio off the discs and can copy the video stream from the file instead of the disc. I’m not sure what movies you’re talking about so maybe that wouldn’t work either, but it’s worth mentioning.
