ok i am not sure if this is the right forum to post in and if it is not then i am sorry in advance.

i want to build a pc to use as a home entertainment system and i want to copy every dvd i have to it. what i am not sure is what is the best type to copy the movies into to have the smallest size and the best quality. also if possible i would also like the copies to be able to play on a tablet or cell phone (android). any help would be awesome thanks for the help

How much are you willing to spend?

To start I'd say getting a smaller box with a lower-power CPU (probably an AMD APU) should do the job. It may hurt on encoding videos between formats, but power concerns and noise from cooling fans would probably get annoying when you're watching a movie.

If you want the absolute most compatible format, it has to be encoded in H.264. Then you're just going to have to play around with bitrates until you find something you like.
