    So, I've been trying to reduce the size of my dual layer dvd so that it fits on 1 blank...

    Just a couple general questions...

    Has anyone had any success?
    Is the quality up to par?
    Is it worth the encoding time?
    Is a better option just to split on 2 blanks?

    0 (cks to anyone who can help out...

    "Has anyone had any success?"
    - Yes... allways

    "Is the quality up to par?"
    - It depends on movies lenght(size) ... could be ... or not

    "Is it worth the encoding time?"
    - Yes if you use CCE and Robshot method or just 4 X VBR

    "Is a better option just to split on 2 blanks?"
    - Yes if you don't mind changeing the disks...

    Dual layer dvd well worth it, use mad bit rate to calculate size, then rempeg to shrink, 6 hours later Very good copy. Done Titanic, lord rings and more all went well

    Spliting creates a whole new set of nightmares. I find that re-encoding the video is the best option. You can squeeze a lot of video on a DVD and keep the quality pretty high if you're willing to sacrifice the 5.1 soundtrack for the stereo. Those few hundred extra megs will be well spent.
