    I used your articles here for making DVD--->AVI/DiVX. I followed everything to the teeth, and the three dvd's I compressed came out great! One thing, the .avi's are 1.5 GIG and BIGGER! I used the DV TOOL to figure out bitrate for fitting a single DVD movie into a 795MB file (.avi) so they can fit onto a disk if I want to burn. I put the exact bitrate into VirtualDub. I am using 128kb for compressing the audio. I am using 2-pass like your guide says to. I'd like to ask why are the files coming out so HUGE - and not the 795MB file I specify, and the bitrate I figured so the .avi WOULD be around 800MB.

    Thanks

    I encountered the same problem. The solution was rather simple: I used the UNCOMPRESSED audio wav-file! CDex put the compressed rif-wav in another directory (you can alter this yourself, but I didn't see it at the time) and I used the big one in Virtuadub.

    I should get a file of 700MB, but I got one of 1800!!!

    I don't know if this is your problem to, but hey...I just wanna help! ;-)
