    Default Noob DVD convert?

    I have done some searching and I haven't found exactly what I'm looking for. I have a 40gb ATV and I'm thinking about buying a Terabyte HD to put into my Mac Pro to rip all of my DVDs too, then selling the DVDs. Last night I was playing around with the new handbrake update and found that they have presets for the AppleTv and for Film though the film does not convert into MP4. So I have a few questions that I would appreciate your help with.

    1) Is hand brake the best thing to use?
    2)Is there going to be a big enough difference in quality from MP4 and MKV that it would be worth hacking the ATV?

    I appreciate any help.

    If your just ripping the disk image and reburning you don't need to convert (ie. Handbrake) try Mac the Ripper to rip the disk image.

    Well I use handbrake and mac the ripper, I think there's no problem if the container is mov instead of mp4.

    And for divx, xvid and those I did a small applescript to just put a 1sec applemovie before the divx movie, and that is how iTunes thinks that is a valid movie.

    Of course you need to have perian on the appletv.

    The problem is that you need quicktime pro to do this little trick ;(

    And the script is a bit buggy too, need to work harder on it.

    I'm not a developer though
