Best Movie File Format - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Thanks guys. I most likely will be using h264 and MKV or even MP4. I try not get get any AVI files anymore.

There is a new codec called h265, but it hasn't hit mainstream yet...to be honest I don't really think mkv container has hit mainstream either.

Thanks again.

And yes, I'm OCD..
Ahh!

If all you need is video quality, I'd say h264 mp4. It is less likely to glitch out. If you want the ability to turn subs on and off or switch between audio sources/language, mkv is the way to go. avi is old school and unless you've got really bad hardware, anything these days is capable of decoding h264 mp4 files so xvid avi makes no sense.
