Then what Is the Best Format to Rip DVD to Emby Media Server?

Frequently, users ask which format is the best one for Emby Media Server. It's difficult to give a simple answer because it has various decisive factors, including your preferences and usages of such. Before jumping to conclusions, a quick word on the suggested video formats in different situations:

- If you want to preserve everything on a DVD

Use "Copy DVD Disc to Folder" feature by using Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac, you can get zero-quality-loss full Video_ts folder copied from DVD with keeping all the orignal chapters, audio languages, subtitles and so on.

- If you are not overly concerned about file size, and would prefer the best-quality video and audio possible

The best container format would be MKV, which would be widely accepted by kinds of media servers, mobile devices, media player. It is the standard of HD video in Blu-ray or 1080p quality, and would preserve any multichannel audio (i.e. 5.1 surround sound). The file size may range from 4GB to 7GB. You can copy DVD as multi-track MKV and lossless MKV with retaining multipe audio tracks.

- If you want to seek a good balance between quality and size

MP4, being the top answer in most DVD backup and video re-encoding cases, is what we suggest this time, especially MP4/H.264. Technically speaking, MP4 is a media container, storing videos encoded in MPEG-4 and H.264. Out of the best video compressing algorithm, H.264 reaches the best balance between file size and quality. MPEG-4 video is the most universal format that is the best choice for playing or streaming movies onto Apple, Android, Microsoft and Sony devices like HDTVs, iPhone, Apple TV, Mac, Samsung smartphone, Xbox, PS3 and PSP. Barely any player and gadget does not support MP4.

That's why even you don't care about space any more, which is exactly the selling point of Emby, we still take MP4 as the best one. >>See How to Rip DVD to MP4
