Yes, I did read the first page several times. But it does not in any way shape or form refer to file types (what they mean) and audio formats. I am aware of the programs that are available, but am looking for specific information with regards to audio tracks. As stated, I hve used make mkv and handbrake, but was unable to find any audio options.
I appreciate your post and the attempt to limit unnecessary posts, but after reading a few pages, I was still left with some questions.
Thank you to dbone, I will look into ripping to folder structure. If anyone else has any suggestions, feel free to PM me.
The one thing to understand, there is no "perfect" encode, everyone will have different tastes, and there are so many variables. When I encode I do a few different methods (for my Blu rays):
- Ripbot264 - probably my most used tool. I would encode using the CQ=20, High Profile, mkv
- Handbrake - I have always used this for SD content. However, for Blu rays what I have been doing is using the "Normal" profile, I lock in the resolution at 1280 x 720, and encode to an mp4. This gives me compatibility with my mobile devices, but also allows for better quality when watching on a big tv. Typical file size will be around 2-3GB
