Waiting to receive my HD TV Live, i’m beginning to encode my DVD in MKV format (as i’ve read it seems it the best one for this kind of job… despite i used to think that MP4 was more standard).
I’ve a Mac and i’m using Handbrake. As i’m a totally noob regarding video encoding, i don’t know what settings would be the best (in terms of ration size/quality)… Hence my questions.
For Audio, i think the best is to choose AC3 passthru
For Video, MKV settings in Handbrake allow me to choose a target size, an average bitrate or a constant quality. By default, Handbrake choose a Constant Quality of 60%.
Default video filters are Detelecine and Decomb.
May i go with these setting or should i play with them ?
These MKV are intended to be seen on a 40" HD Sony Bravia, no home theater devices : i understand i could choose a 100% quality but, in this case, i imagine i rather make a vob…
Any advices are welcome… as the transcoding process is rather long, i don’t want to create ugly files and having to redo all this work.
