1. Blu-ray ripping best video format
Have you ever been through the process of editing or backing up video on your PC? If you do, you must have faced the question of "which video format should I choose for output?" It's a simple question but not easy to answer.
Well, you are lucky that you are here because I'm going to tell you the best quality format to rip Blu-ray to and you are going to be convinced.
MPEG4 codec are widely used video compression standards in many multimedia applications, ranging from mobile devices to DVD players. It was created in 1998 by Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) who is responsible for the video encoding standards that we often use. It was mainly developed with the aim of achieving higher compression, lower bandwidth while providing superior audio and image quality compared to the earlier MPEG-2 format. In short, its goal is to gain better picture and audio quality with smaller file size.
It can be played on mobile devices and online streaming or transmission. Most modern video codecs are based on MPEG4 like DivX and Xvid. MPEG4 can produce a full-length movie file less than 1G. Files encoded in format have a much lower bit rate ranging from a few kilobytes per second to megabytes per second and thus requires little bandwidth when streaming recorded or real-time videos online.
No need to worry as well if you are using Apple products. Even though Apple makes things simpler by eliminating dozens of popular alternatives (AVI, WMV, DivX, Xvid, FLV, MKV etc), it still allows two real digital video options: MPEG-4 at 640 x 480 pixels and H.264 at up to 720p on most iPads, and up to 1080p on the iPad mini and iPad Air. We see MPEG-4 here again on the list. You will not have to go through the trouble of finding a third party video if you are using other format.
In conclusion, compared to MPEG-2, MPEG-4 is a far more versatile encoding format overall for its higher compression, smaller size and extensive applications, and I don't foresee a time when PCs will be unable to play them. So ripping Blu-rays to MPEG4 would be a good choice.
2. Blu-ray ripping best audio format
Speaking of Blu-ray ripping best video format, best audio quality cannot be forget as well. There are two types of audio quality: lossless and lossy. Lossless music keeps all the audio quality of the original source—in most cases, CD—intact, while lossy music compresses the files for space savings (though at slightly diminished quality). Lossless files include: WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless and APE. Lossy formats including MP3, AAC, OGG Vorbis, WMA etc. If you have to pick one of those, choose FLAC. The FLAC format (short for Free Lossless Audio Codec) is probably the most popular lossless encoding system which is becoming more widely supported on hardware devices such as MP3 players, smartphones, tablets, and home entertainment systems. It is developed by the non-profit Xiph.Org Foundation and is also open source. Music stored in this format is typically reduced between 30 - 50% of its original size. Making FLAC a good choice if you want to store your music in lossless. Unlike WAV and AIFF, it's been compressed, so it takes up a lot less space. However, it's still a lossless format, which means the audio quality is still the same as the original source, so it's much better for listening than lossy formats.
