Thanks to DiiZzY, I know know the max bit rate for MPEG1 and MPEG2
It got me a thinking…
I’m currently capturing analog VHS, creating MPEG1 video and burning a DVD.
Would upgrading my software to write MPEG2 and using a higher bit rate mean that the quality is better, or does it just mean that the compression is better and I’ll be able to fit more on the DVD???
Also, would there be any disadvantages to using MPEG2 over MPEG1? Would it mean only recent DVD players could play them?
Slightly embarrassed :o at not knowing things which are probably quite fundamental, but hey you gotta start somewhere!
