Using Handbrake to Encode DVDs for the Roku

Update 2014-04-27 10:00 PM: See also Using Handbrake to Encode Blu-Rays for the Roku In a previous post, I noted that I use ffmpeg to convert DVDs to MP4s which will play on my Roku. I recently encountered two problems with this approach. First, the resulting MP4s only include a stereo audio track, so are highly sub-optimal for surround sound systems. Second, for a yet-undetermined reason, Plex (my current preferred media client) will transcode the videos rather than play them directly.
