I had been ripping my entire DVD collection, and making good progress, then reencoding with Handbrake.

What I'm beginning to realize is that I think I'm wasting time with the re-encode, I'd rather just get full blown quality/extra features, etc. Storage is really cheap.

So, I'm going to re-rip everything that I've converted back to VIDEO_TS and what not, but my question is how do you organize a folder full of files instead of one nice blahblah.m4v file?

You can't add them to itunes, how do you add meta data and album artwork? How do you name them?

What do I do with these things?

I was under the influence that Front Row could be able to do them.

Plex can handle them.

akm3, what software are you using for playback? At least for me, that would be the determining factor in how I organize my stuff.

Well, I have an AppleTV with Boxee on it and a different TV has a Mac Mini currently with Front Row but I'm considering putting XBMC, Boxee, or Plex on it as well.
