Hi there folks, i have been converting mkv's for a while now to make them burnable in mp4 format however i like a second opinion on the best method to retain the quality (as much) of the original mkv. Mainly i use mkvtools to convert it over to mp4 under general settings with AAC audio with H264 on the video setting. Then letting toast burn this onto a dvd disc which usually takes a long time for encoding. (should i be using pass thru?) I have just recently learned that hand brake can take a mkv and convert it to mp4 as well and i'm wondering does this result in lose of quality? Another method I was thinking about is dropping the mkv file into visualhub and switch to DVD on standard quality which will make a video ts folder that will by pass encoding on toast when burning. I believe however my main issue will always be toast wanting to encode the video and drop the quality of the file. I spent a while trying to make it into a video ts folder, visual hub is the only program I am aware of to do this from mp4 file but I haven't experimented with mkv to dvd yet. All in all any other advice or critiques on my methods would be greatly appreciated.
