What Exactly is Nero Smart Encoding?



Just updated my copy of Nero to the latest version ( and noticed a feature called “Smart Encoding”. Could someone explain it to me in simple terms please? I notice it is available when I create a DVD-Video. Will it speed up the encoding process? Will the end result still be playable in most standalone DVD players? Thanks for taking the time to read this and any help would be appreciated.


May be refering to the Nero Start Smart Tool. For quickly finding and launching a program, like Recode etc.
