    I am a total newbie to video. I would very much appreciate advice on which format/program/tools to use.

    What I want to do is build a collection of high quality music videos as single standalone files.

    I have a bunch of various source material: DVDs/BD/ISO/VIDEO_TS.
    What I want to do is "chop up and copy my source material" into single standalone files without ANY loss of quality.
    If possible I would prefer to retain any original multiple audio channels within the same file (Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround etc)

    I have been playing arround with Womble MPEG Video Wizard. I have been able to get it to work quite good for Stereo.
    I have not been able to get 5.1 and have not been able to get multiple audio channels within the same file.
    The program very nicely reports if video/audio is re-encoded. Since I know far too little about re-encoding I am trying to avoid this; assuming that it will result in loss of quality.

    What would the recommended output format be for retaining quality and the best flexibility with respect to audio?
    Which program / tools can do this; and support "chopping" the source material into single files?

    ...I actually believed that .VOB files would be the best option...until I read a few articles on this forum...understanding that I was so totally wrong....

    Thanks for your time

    You could use dvd shrink in the reauthoring mode to cut out dvd clips. No quality loss at all. You will get a vob file. It should work fine in most video players. See first step in

    But for BD wont you find anything that simple to cut out clips. You could rip with dvdfab decrypter and then maybe cut with tssniper.
