I'm finally ready to start the DVD/bluray "backup" process. I've got an Apple TV 4, and Plex seems pretty great. I've read lots of tutorials that say to use MakeMKV and Handbrake. I'm familiar with Handbrake, and I understand what the difference is between uncompressed MKV and lossy MP4. What I'm trying to figure out is, do I really need Handbrake in this process. Plex plays the MKV great on my wired network. File size isn't really an issue, as they're on a Drobo. I do have probably a fair amount to back up (200-300) between DVD and BR. Right now my only use is to play back on the home network, but someday I may need to download a smaller copy to an iDevice for my kids. But I understand Plex will transcode for the device as needed. Other than file size, is there something else I need to consider as a reason to use Handbrake?
