I am using DVD Fab Platinum 5.020. I am thinking of ripping my DVDs to put on a media server available to some media extenders and PCs in my home. I would do Vob, but those files would take up too much space. I am thinking of getting an XBox 360 and/or PS3. I also have Windows Media Center PCs and a Zune. I would like to use a format that can be read on all of the devices and software easily without transcoding. I want full resolution videos.
I am thinking of using H.264 MP4 files. The Zune Software and Player reads them and my wife’s iTunes and iPod reads them (Although I know they may need to be resized).
Does anyone know if Windows Media Center/Media Player can play those codecs?
Also, since I don’t have a 360 yet, or a PS3, has anyone used this codec with the devices? I think I can stream to the 360 with the Zune software but am unsure.
I would use DivX but the Zune doesn’t support it yet, and as far as I know, the wife’s iPod doesn’t either.
Any help is great. Thanks!
