Ripped File Size

Used Tablo Ripper to rip some 1/2 hr shows and got 750+ meg files. Is this normal? How can I reduce the file size?


At least two ways:

  • By default TabloRipper extracts the same “quality” you’re recording, so you could back off a bit in your Tablo settings, and
  • You can alter the default TabloRipper FFMPEG command line to reduce file size.

I get HD half hours at about 2.22GB, SD half hours at 600MB. You could use Handbrake to squeeze them further if you wanted. It has a lot of presets that you could play with including h.265.
