Most Kodi-useful format for ripping DVDs?

Am I able to rip a DVD in such a way that playing it from Kodi is similar to the menu presented from a DVD player ("Play Movie", "Bonus Features", "Chapters", etc.) or does it only play a "movie" file? For years I have been ripping DVDs to .ISO via DVDShrink, then using Handbrake to convert to .avi (and trashing the original .ISO). Now it seems as tho .m4v is better quality for same/smaller file size, so I've been re-ripping the DVDs in that format, but maybe I'll either hang on to the .ISO or maybe I should be putting it into a more "useful" format for the future?

That was the original design of Kodi so I'm going to say yes. If you rip a dvd with its menu then you can put in Kodi to play like a dvd player
