Advice on file format when using PC for films
Hi all, I started a similar topic elsewhere but never received a single response. I figured perhaps it was really not in the right area so my search for answers continues. I had hoped to one day build a theater PC, specifically for streaming and/or network playback. I have already started the project of ripping disks in attempts to prepare for this, but then realized that playing back disks that have been ripped into the native file structures do not always play well when using VC player and other softwares. Then I started thinking perhaps it was better to save them as ISO? So not really knowing what the best method is I saved them as both native ripped and ISO backups - and now I've filled up a 3gig drive and still a hundred+ of movies to go!
What are your suggestions for format, and playback methods? What is normal, and also what are other various options pros and cons?
