Default Best settings for ripping/converting videos for n3?

If I were to rip a DVD or convert an incompatible HD video (for example misfits series 4.mkv doesn't run audio for some reason) to play on the n3, (for which I use Xilisoft and will continue to do so unless recommended better software) what would be the optimal format, settings, aspect ratio, etc etc to get a great video experience?

Thanks

I would firstly say, what media player have you tried the .mkv file with? MX Player has never failed me so far.

As for optimal format... the screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 however it's capable of 4k, so really depends on your source quality.

I'd probably say h264 full HD max settings if you have the storage space

Also remember a .mkv file is just a container file. Just cause 1 doesn't work, doesn't mean all won't.

DONATE TO ME
MX Player is usually pretty reliable except IF a certain .mkv is encoded @ a poor or badly wrote CRF - try another one and see, or just extract the .mp4 from the .mkv container and it'll play OK with MX -- Or try updating codecs for it?
