Next week i'll be getting two new Sony Bravia tv's (37EX500 and 22EX320).
I'm a newby at video formats ... and trying to find the right resources to learn all this, but all i get is very confusing information about containers and codecs ...
One of these confusing resources is the forum here, esp this topic http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9570
If i look in that thread so see what is says about Sony Bravia tvs:
If i have found the right resources on the net, this list of supported formats contains both containers and codecs. Am i correct?Limited media format support: AVCHD, HDV, MPEG2-PS, MP3 and JPG only. No support for DivX, AVI, QuickTime or WMV
Then there is the following practical problem:
I have a large collection of video files, ripped from DVD's or otherwise (mostly ISO files and avi files)
In what format should i convert these so that my Bravia tvs can play them directly from TwonkyServer running on my Readynas? What container? What codec? what resolution/bitrate ....
And what tools can i use to do that?
I'd very much appreciate a link to some video containers/codes 101 ...
