Damian from A Digital Home Blog has contributed a post to comparing the efficiency of the mkv, ts, m2ts containers for HD video — specifically for a Blu-ray movie. In short, his results found that with a 38.4GB disc converted to mkv (using MakeMKV) yielded a 27.GB file, ts (using Clown_BD) yielded a 27.8GB file, and m2ts (using Clown_BD) yielded a 28.4GB file. However, Damian notes on his blog that his container of choice currently is ts for HD content due to the fact that Clown_BD allows one to add an additional AC3 track along side the original HD audio for better device playback compatibility.
