I am a newbie to the forum, and have not built a HTPC, but I'm trying to learn as much as possible before I build. I plan on a server with clients in different areas of the house. I have anydvd hd and have used it to burn sd dvd and have ripped a few bluray to iso.


Queston is, what is the best format for streaming, or does it make a diiference? Upsides and downsides to ripping to a particular format? I would prefer to stay with an uncompressed format.

depends on what you are streaming to.


for instance an xbox wont play dvds ripped to video_ts folders, and will give you trouble with mkv, it plays nice with dvr-ms, but a lot of other devices don't.

keeping it Video_ts or .iso has been best for me. I have about 12 gb of films on a ss4200 running WHS. I see zero advantage in mkv on my set up. it really depends on your spectrum of end devices.
