    I captured the following:

    TAPE02-FULL
    4h 4m | 40.5 GB
    720*576 (5:4) | 22.2 Mb/s | 25 FPS | Canopus HQX (PAL)
    1,536 kb/s | 48 kHz | 16 bits | 2 channels | PCM (Little/Signed)

    TAPE03-FULL
    1h 6m | 9.90 GB
    720*576 (5:4) | 17.7 Mb/s | 25 FPS | Canopus HQX (PAL)
    1,536 kb/s | 48 kHz | 16 bits | 2 channels | PCM (Little/Signed)

    TAPE04-FULL
    3h 3m | 31.5 GB
    720*576 (5:4) | 23.1 Mb/s | 25 FPS | Canopus HQX (PAL)
    1,536 kb/s | 48 kHz | 16 bits | 2 channels | PCM (Little/Signed)

    TAPE05-FULL
    2h 3m | 20.9 GB
    720*576 (5:4) | 22.8 Mb/s | 25 FPS | Canopus HQX (PAL)
    1,536 kb/s | 48 kHz | 16 bits | 2 channels | PCM (Little/Signed)

    Clearly 102 GB is too much for anything other than archival.

    Which format, bitrate etc. would you compress these VHS rips at?

    What happened to Tape01 ?

    But seriously the real questions ere 1. How and where you intend to view these tapes. 2. Do they need any post-processing (Noise removal etc.)

    And you really should archive the captures should you decide at a later date to convert to another medium.

    Ten hours and 16 minutes of video is a lot. Perhaps you need to tell us how big you think they should be. Don't expect them to be the same quality, as they are already compressed.

    Well, now, since you already capped noisy wobbly fuzzy VHS to artifact-laced mosquito noisy lossy DV, why don't you just encode them to h.264 with the cheapest software you can find (free is best, and there's plenty of it. Try Avidemux), and the lowest bitrate you'd like to live with? Why is this a question?
