Hello. I am aware of the lengths of movie which should be, according to the conventions of those who establish these sort of conventions, converted to single CD size and those which should be converted to double CD size. I use FairUse 2 and these are my default settings: HERE As you can see, I convert double CD sized movies in one piece, because I store them for myself and not for vcds / upload / anyone else. I also drop 1MB, to make sure of fitting (though this is often not needed). Some movies convert to 14??MB (the ? representing an arbitrary number), as they are meant to. What is odd is that, despite the default settings that you can see, I have converted some which end up at about 16??MB in size. How come? I do not convert overly large movies. Indeed one I just converted to 1600MB was only 1:37 in length. I am not converting anything that appears too big and my settings should be correct. Some with subtitles convert to the expected size and some without them do not. I cannot see an obvious answer. I do not want to have to drop down the file sizes and convert, trial and error fashion, for certain conversions - that would end up in poorer quality and constant tinkering. What has caused my issue and what can I do about those particular conversions which end up oversized, so that another conversion of the same movie ends up the "correct" size? Thanks.
