any dvd vs rip (new to ripping)

Are there are any quality differences - video or audio - between playing a disc (blu ray 1080p and dvds) directly using any dvd hd and mpc vs a rip of that disc using mpc ? Also, is a rip with mkv the same quality as a rip to a folder structure with dvdfab? thanks

If you just do a rip then yes they are identical. For instance makemkv just takes the audio and video you want and puts it in a new container (the .mkv).

Quality will be exactly the same as watching the disc or ripping to folder structure (not taking into account different players that might be used.)

You can definitely also have an mkv that the quality has been changed, but that would require transcoding with something like handbrake.

Ripping to disc many times result in "interstitial errors" because of lost samples. It is evident as sharp drops on a waveform. Most are not noticeable and those which are sound like an audio drop-out.

Playback of ripped ISO is identical to playback of original disc. Likewise from an MKV, so long as you didn’t transcode or compress it further with e.g. Handbrake.

I rip with AnyDVD HD and then extract mkv’s from the iso with MakeMKV. But a lot of folks are telling me I’m doing it the hard way and it’s faster to go from disc to mkv with MakeMKV. So, something to consider if you’re an AnyDVD HD user like me.
