Hey there, i'm about to convert some HD videos and i need some help. There are lots of options for the video format and the video codecs, can you help me choose the one with the best quality?


-MPEG4 (Divx)
-MPEG4 (Xvid)
-AVC (H264)

Thanks to anyone who can help me :)

I personally use XVID codec with .avi format when I'm converting 1080p gaming videos from uncompressed fraps. Video quality doesn't suffer, or at least it seems so.

H.264 in mkv container.
