Step 2: Click the "Format" option, and choose MP4, MKV from HD Video profile list. If you want to keep 1080p resolution as source movie, you can choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mp4) for Plex Media Server.
Note: The output format is preferably in a common format, like MP3 for audio, MPEG-4 for video. The more common format you use, the more devices you can stream to. For example, if you use FLAC instead of MP3 for your music, you can't stream to your Xbox 360. Just keep in mind that not all devices support all formats of media.
Tip - Advanced Settings:
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.

Once the conversion finished, get the ripped DVD files onto Plex Media Server easily. Now you can stream DVD movies through Plex to iPad, Smart TV, Roku, Xbox One, or other connected devices for great enjoyment.
