    I'm not sure if anyone has posted this problem, but I'm really driving myself up the wall trying to solve it...I have a avi file that is about 30 min and about 300 MB, when I encode it with TMPGEnc it get up to 800 MB, is there any way to make this file smaller so I can fit at least on or two onto a disk? I'm I doing something wrong with the encoding???

    ok you might just want to check if you set the bitrate too high for your purpouses during the encoding. Tmpegnc sets a default of 1600 which is too high for what you want to do set the bitrate lower. Also an 800mb file can fit on two discs

    The file could be compressed which can cause some problems in the resulting filesize for TMPGEnc, so you could decompress the audio with VirtualDub first.

    Like jaygee said, lowering the bitrate settings for encoding will result in a smaller size, so that it would be possible to fit at least one or two on a single disk

    [bold]10. TMPGEnc seriously over-estimates file length![/bold]

    OK, if your problem is that you loaded a 90 minute file (just an example) and TMPGEnc said it was 142 minutes long or something, then this is what to do.

    Click setting and click the advanced tab. Select Source Range from the list and if it doesnt pop up, double click source range. Click "move to start frame" and click "set start frame" then click "move to end frame" and click "set end frame". Then click OK and try again!
