HELLO~ I was wondering, when i burn movies (probably burnt about 30 with no problems) when shrink does its duty i usually have to reauthor which is no problem because i could care less about menus and extras anyway.The compression rate for example on braveheart is about 64 (if i remember right) at custom settings on shrink at 4300. I hear all the hype about needing (or not so much needing ) low compression to preserve dvd quality?? Am i crazy?? All the dvds i burn or atleast most of them are at 60-80 compressed some are even 55. I have a big screen downstairs inwhich all i use is a ps2 to play all these movies and i can't tell the difference from a movie with a 55 % or a 95 % compression rate ..and its still on a ps2.I'm pretty sure i can tell good quality . Even upstairs i have a pioneer dvd player with a hd tv good quality and they look the same up there as downstairs. Not really sure what my question is ...I guess is compression that important??
