Are we adding the Codec for audio as well..? "DO'oH!"
Check this out.... from my test..
1024 + 640 + 128 - 5x = 70 165
1024 + 640 + 192 - 5.1 = 74 019
Just changing the audio is adding that .1 gives you roughly 3 854... now logic would dictate that would be the same across the board as well..Which is weird.. you can see the file size on audio in DVD shrink but not on Any Video.. which sucks...
Its funny while encoding to VOB a great number of disc (in audio) ARE 5.0 or 468Kbps and the others are 2.0 or 192Kbps (sometimes both), I wonder how many compressors out that screw with 5.0 or even 5.1... Any Video doesnt have it..it goes 320 which is 3.5 (I think), and Open DVD 2 doesnt have it either.. SO, if you wanna maintain that "surround sound" 5.1 Which compressor has this and why even bother with it.. I would think youd lose a shitload in the compression. Im sure also that X = ? wouldnt change that much... BUT the file size is going to be as freeking close as to the original... if so... why even compress it at all? You could type in 468Kbps or whatever is 5.1, but I dont think that would work anyway...
The rule of thumb for MP3s are 128Kbps (dont ask me why), but every MP3 I have ripped is 2.0 or 192Kbps... so that would mean that my audio Codec will have to add 3 854K to my file size... *shrug*... I keep thinking if I could compress this video down to fit a 700Mb CD...great BUT, Its going to look like shit... I know..
