You're an experienced movie reviewer. You've watched hundreds of movies and you may even have a large DVD collection of movies in your home.
The problem with DVDs, blu ray discs and even VHS videos is that they can take up plenty of space, especially if your collection is in the hundreds or thousands. You could hire out more storage space but that could be costly, and it may mean that your movies are not easily accessible. A better option may be to convert all of your movies into Xvid video format.
Computer technology today allows you to capture all of of your movies onto computer, whether they're on VHS, blu ray disc or DVD. If you capture it directly, your computer will need plenty of hard disk space. If you use an encoder such as Xvid, however, you will be able to have all of your movies conveniently located on your computer.
