Help filesize problem! Undersize?

An example is American Pie 2. After ripping with DVD Decrypter, movie only, the filesize comes out to a little over 5 gigs. After dvd2one the filesize comes out to 3.82 gigs… seems kind of small? DVD2One setting was 4472MB(4.36G), 1 6-ch Audio, and 1 subtitle.

Does this look right? I used to be able to max-out the filesize to 4.36GB when the movie was over 5GB. Lately, I have not been able to do this with any movie. It seems like DVD2One is not transcoding/encoding to possible max size for better quality? This happens with both current and older version.

try ripping in file mode and rip ALL files. I have no idea if this will help or not but according to the DVD2one FAQ, it “prefers” rips that are in file mode rather than movie mode. i.e., let DVD2one find the movie and not DVD decrypter.
