ok im not sure if this belongs here so if it isnt that please could a mod move it over to the correct location. That said now for the question. What is the "best" video codec to use out there. By "best" i mean the best quality for size. Im going to moving about a bit and i want to encode my DVDs (Matrix etc) onto my HDD so that i can have some entertainment while im on the road. Size is important however quality is too as i dont want to be in a situation where i can hardly see/understand the movie. Having said THAT i guess i need a good audio codec too . Ive seen some OGM files that look good and are pritty small but im sure there is more out there. Help?!
