Re: DVD to N7
I use 123 DVD copy Platinum for PC. I don't know if it comes in an Apple version. It is a paid program you can get at Best Buy, but it's the only one you can buy in a store that has decryption ability and it rips blu rays in .m2ts format.

.m2ts will play without conversion, but .vob for SD DVDs will not. I think you can just change the extension from .vob to .mpeg and it will play, or you can use 'VOB Merge' to combine them and change to .mpeg
As far as 'formats' go, you have to worry about the 'container' and the 'contents' for a video file. Just because the file extension is the same doesn't mean it will play.
Almost all formats (containers and contents) will play with MX Player. The questions are: Is it going to be streamed or stored on the playing device? Will it play using HW acceleration? Is the file the size I need it to be? Is the bit rate playable? Is the sound format playable? Are the subtitles needed or playable?
So you see, your question has too many variables to make suggestions. Mp4 is probably the best format for the N7.
This video format thing is a NIGHTMARE! Good luck.
