I’m working on making a DVD out of 110 minutes of home video, but I’m having trouble fitting it onto a single disc.
At “Standard Play” (5073 kbit/sec), NeroVision says I should be able to fit about 120 minutes of video on a standard single-layer DVD, but my 110 minutes consume about gigabyte too much at 5.6 GB.
So I tried changing the output quality to Long Play (3382 kbit/sec), which Nero claims should accomodate 180 minutes of video. No such luck, my 110 minutes still take up 5.47 GB.
If it took up 5.6 GB at 5073 kbit/sec, then shouldn’t it only consume two-thirds of that (3.7 GB) at 3382 kbit/sec? What’s the deal here?
FWIW, if I drop it down to Super Long Play (1691 kbit/sec), then the compilation size drops to 1.55 GB. This is of course at half resolution (352x480), which I’d rather not settle with unless I have to.
FWIW: the audio setting is AC3 2.0, not LPCM (which only makes the compilation larger).
