I bought DVDFab Platinum quite a while ago, and it’s been great. I’ve been coping my collection of show I got all the seasons of to my video ipod to watch at work when it’s slow. I’ve found that the setings of no subtitles, volume 200%, 2pass, audio 128 and the default 640x352 seems to work best for me. Copies over to the ipod rather quick too.
Odd thing started happening since the last update to 188.8.131.52 though. I still use the same settings, but now the files that were coming in around 311 megs are anywhere from 450megs to 620 megs. I ran gspot to get info on the files and all the 311 meg ones were 961 kbps. The new ones are completly random but in the nieborhood of 1980 kbps. Even when I tell it I want the filesize 311 or the 961 kbps it goes and doubles it. The files play fine and space isn’t really an issue, but it does take quite a bit longer to copy the files to the ipod. I even tried one that I had already done before the update and was a 311 meg file. When I made it again, it was 584 megs and 1805 kbps.
Am I missing some new option that came with the update? If nothing else, can I just install the previous version over the new one, or would that cause problems?
