    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post on this forum, I want to thank all the people who have set up this site and the great amount of information they put into it, am still letting it sink in.


    The problem I have is am converting files (.mpeg4,.avi) into mpeg2 files, the average size of the files is about 200 MB’s, but when a convert them the files sizes increased to 1.3 GB’s, is this standard ?

    That's normal, to a degree. The compression is far higher on avi codecs than mpeg2. If you want to decrease the size, you have to decrease the bitrate, but at the expense of quality.
