I have found my HD movies to work great in m2ts format. This allows me to have the original video, sound, and subtitles all in 1 wrapped up file. No loss and no conversion of original information. I can turn on and off subtitles as needed and its all in 1 file.
But now my problem is finding a format for my standard def videos. I can rip to mkv with passthrough of original video and sound but the subtitles come out as 2 extra .idx .sub files. This works but is messy. I am having a hard time finding a video format I can wrap all 3 streams in without a conversion. Ideas? I like being able to turn off the subtitles so hard coding is not a option.
I prefer no conversion of video or audio. This allows full quality and quickest wrapper file making. If I have to go to mkv +sub+idx to another container thats fine.
I am currently using the original .iso files with DVDfab. MKV option in this program seems to be the only format with passthough or original video and audio streams.
