I have the latest Xvid codec installed. The question that seems to boggle my mind is what is the best setting to compress movies / tv shows? I know there's a million and one ways to cut the pie and everyone's different...but I can take a 1 hour video, compress it to 600mbs and it will look worse than some of the tv shows I've downloaded and theirs are half the size of mine. I checked and their videos are also encoded with Xvid (for the most part). Am I missing something here? Any tips would be appreciated. I've been leaving the size the same as the source, 128 MP3, NTSC (29) frame rate, same aspect ratio as source, etc... I currently have the Xvid encoder configuration at the default setting. Thanks.
