I recently upgraded to DVDFab 220.127.116.11 because of problems in backing up my Dark Knight DVD. It worked flawlessly using the ‘main movie’ option and I put the entire movie on a single SL Verbatim DVD+R 16x disk using a Phillips DVD8601 burner. The copy plays flawlessly on a Toshiba upconverting player into a 52" LCD TV.
My question is this. The movie was over 2 1/2 hours long and when the copy was being made, the compression was the most I have ever seen. I think it was in the low 70% area. I considered using the ‘split’ mode or trying DL disks for the first time, but I decided to put it all on the single layer disk, mostly as a test. I figured if the copy showed any problems with the compression, I would recopy it using two disks or a single DL disk. The playback however was excellent and we never saw any signs that the movie had been seriously compressed. Is there a point in which DVDFab could compress too much and result in a inferior playback??
TIA for any advice - Tom F
