    Whats the best audio compression & bitrate for encoding DivX/Xvid Videos?

    Before I used MPEG 2 Layer 3 56 kB/s 24000 Hz
    Now Im using Lame MP3 48000 Hz 192kbps Stereo CBR

    Now what does Hz mean? And doest it matter?
    Would it be better if I use Lame all the time?
    I want something that is standard, will play on most if nto all
    standalones and has relatively good quality.
    Need your opinions. Of course average filesize too.

    Thanks

    Personally if it's a one CD rip I use MP3 @ 44,100 Hz @ 128 Variable Bitrate (VBR), whereas if it's a 2 CD rip I usually keep the AC3 Track from the DVD. What you're using now should be fine really, just use VBR instead of CBR.

    I see..
    Although woudl it be better if I use VBR? Isnt it non standard?
    Might not work on some standalones and might have sync probs

    Sync problems only occur when you join multiple files, simply encoding the audio that way will not cause any. I'm certain standalones can cope with it, as all scene releases are standalone compatible and (if MP3 is used) all have VBR audio.
