    Using v5.10. Under Video encoding I select x264 2P DVD5 HQ Film. To me this suggests that it will create a file that fits on a DVD. Except the mp4 file is 30GB.

    How should I set it up for correct file size?

    Under Video Encoding click on the E-button. Set the video encoding mode to 2-pass and set the exact output file size.

    It was like that already. Still got 30GB file. Went to CLI. The command line code there looked good, so I clicked Apply. It is busy processing now, and I ill see what the effect is.

    You can check so the bitrate looks ok(if for example xvid4psp identify the running time incorrect/to short).

    running time * bitrate = file size or use a bitrate calculator.

    Checked with the Bitrate Calculator. The reason I am using the software is because it is all I have to split the movie over 2 disks. It is doing half the movie, but calculated the bitrate from the full length!! (A defininite bug.) Will have to start again to get a reasonable quality, setting the disk size at double.

    Thanks for the help.

    Are you still using CDs?
    Where as DVD media cost you almost same price and you can put at least 2 (2232MB) or 3 (1488MB) movies on one DVD.

    No, DVDs. 164 minute music video at 1280 x 720, so splitting it over 2 DVDs to get better quality.
