Someone Enlighten Me About Video Formats


Active Member
I'm no stranger in converting DVDs to digital formats. I've done it for years. However, what is you're prefered format to use?

For me, when I always convert a DVD to digital, I use Catalyst DVD and I select DIVX, which I think is usually an AVI file. With the greatness of Catalyst, I can select a certain device and it would format it for that specific device.

I ask which format you prefer because I see people here and other places saying I want MKV support, which MKV is something I just started hearing in the past year. Not sure how long MKV has been available. So why do you prefer one format over the other. To me, when I download a video file or convert one from DVD to digital, I always select DIVX because it usually works on all the devices I own and not have to worry if it doesnt.
