Basic advice on video format ...

Specs: Max OS X 10.6
Hi. I´m looking for some basic advice on video formats. When I rip a DVD movie to my hard disk, I end up with a set of "ts" audio and video files that take up about 7GB of space. To stream the movie to my large screen TV, I believe I need to convert the set of ts files to a different format. What format should I use? I want to retain high quality audio and video, and am not too concerned about file size (disk space is cheap!). From what I have read online, creating mp4 files (MPEG-4 video files) seems like a good way to go. Does this sound right? If so, then I can look for the right software to produce this type of file on a Mac. Thanks!

"ts" audio and video files is correct when a DVD is ripped..

I presume by MAC you actually mean you are running OSX and not OS9 and earlier !

Thanks for your response X86. And thanks for the product recommendations. Yes, I was referring to Mac OS X 10.6. Do you know what format file I should create with these products for the highest quality video? mp4?
