I want to convert a PAL DVD of UK origin (576i 25 fps with no telecine) to an MP4 file with 576p 25 fps (not 50 fps, so it is more widely compatible). What is a good way to do this? I have used MakeMKV to create an MPEG2 MKV file.
StaxRip using x264 and QTGMC-medium (to deinterlace) with SelectEven (to get 25 fps) seems to give better results than VidCoder (or Handbrake) using x264 with either Yadif-default or Decomb-default.
Can anyone suggest a better option?
I'd be very grateful for advice.

If the video is really interlaced nothing will beat QTGMC. If it's out-of-phase PAL (really a progressive source) try TFM() instead of QTGMC(). If you don't know, post a sample from the VOB without any processing. Use a program like DgIndex, mark a short sequence with motion, then File -> Save Project and Demux video. Upload the resulting M2V file.
Thank you to both jagabo and hello_hello for your advice, which is very helpful. The video is interlaced, not out-of-phase, so I'll use QTGMC.
