[QUOTE=GregiBoy;2033606]I prefer the following as it gives me a file size of around 1.2Gb for a 1:30 movie. I find anyless gives me poor quality when I play it on my TV.
Generic.avi.xvid.audiocopy, resolution as close as possible to original DVD (720 x (xxx) after cropping), 1100 bitrate, 2 pass, choosing the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack.
This gives pretty good video quality while retaining the 5.1 surround sound.
Hope this helps…[/QUOTE]
what differences do you observe between 1 pass & 2 pass, keeping all other settings same as above, please.
