Click the "Profile" -> "Common Video" or "HD Video" option, and choose MP4, MOV, AVI, etc. formats recognized by Plex as output format. You can also select H.264 Video (*.mp4) for Plex Media Server.
1. The output format is preferably in a common format, like MP3 for audio, MP4 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 One/360. Just keep in mind that not all devices support all formats of media.
2. With the right settings you can retain the quality of the original DVD while also saving space. This is particularly helpful when streaming over your network, depending on your network quality. Simply click "Settings" bar and you can tweak the settings to your satisfaction and even save it as preset.
