Blu-ray File Container Filesize Comparison

Not exactly what I’d expect from the WHS community, but a fantastic post that crosses topics here, as Damian covers some various containers and compares the filesize of each for your convenience. MKV is probably the most popular container out there right now, so he pits it against m2ts and ts.


So my test results confirm my readings online, keeping all other factors constant the mkv container took up the least amount of space, with a savings of 4.5% over m2ts and 2.5% over ts. More importantly, I experienced a space savings of approx 26-30% just by only keeping the main movie and main audio track versus keeping the entire disk, and an approx 10-14% space savings over keeping just the main movie (with included audio tracks and subtitles).
