I know people have talked about backing up DVD collections in a digital format to the "cloud" or external drives. Is there a good program to use for that, to get a format that's playable on the computer? DVD Decrypter makes an ISO file or something for burning DVDs, but that's not directly playable on the computer. I'm looking into full-time RV-ing, and with space at a premium, I was thinking of just digitizing my DVD collection.

I use Handbrake. I believe that program forces you to do .mp4 (which is a lossy format), but the quality from the H.264 encoding is high enough that it doesn’t bother me.

I use MakeMKV for actually "ripping" the DVD (or, with the one-time optional upgrade, Blu-ray) and then use Handbrake to re-encode if I need to compress it further.
