DVDFab 6 .0.0.0 (May 15, 2009)
DVD to Mobile
I am just trying to understand how to make a good â€œhome theatreâ€ AVI in order to store my DVD collection on a USB external hard drive for use with a WD HD TV media player. What determines the final AVI video bitrate (as reported by AVIcodec)?
Original generic profile had a video bit rate of 900 kbps. I noticed most AVIs has a final AVI video bitrate greater than 1,000 kbps. I created a user profile with a video high quality 2-pass and bitrate of 2000 kbps. A few AVIs had a final video bit rate greater than 2000 kbps, some had a final video bit around 20xx kbps, but most had a final video bit rate less than 1500 kbps.
The smallest DVD ISO image I have saved to my hard drive is Catch and Release.
With 1 pass encoding, video bitrate 1024Kbps, the final video bit rate was 1033Kbps.
With 1 pass encoding, video bitrate 2048 Kbps, the final video bit rate was 1650 Kbps.
With 1pass encoding, video bitrate 4096 Kbps, maxbitrate 8192 kbps, the final video bit rate was 1833Kbps .
I Ripped the DVD again and saved the VOBs to my hard drive. The VOBs video bit rate was 9800Kbps.
What is going on? Am I doing something wrong? Help!
