  1. i'd like to convert the tv shows episodes (350 MB) and burn-in the brazilian subs i make cos my dvd player's font is small, white and with no border... the ones i make in the pc are yellow, with border and big

    i'd like to convert the source file and generate one with the same quality (keepin the same size)

    i used to be able to do that in my old pc but i got a new one (MUUUUUCH faster), but even with the same config, it doesn't work anymore

    i used all that "XviD calc" thing to generate the "target bitrate" but now it's useless

    seriously, any help is MUCH appreciated... i'm gettin tired of trying

    Can't be done. You will lose some quality if you try to keep to the same size.

    Vcalc (Videocalc) can do your bitrate calculations for you (actually, any decent bitrate calculator can).

    That said, you can use g-spot or mediainfo to tell you waht bitrate the original used, and use that - if you want the same file size.

    AutoGK will take all the guess work out of it

  3. i've tried many times to set the same bitrate of the input file but it always generates a smaller output file

    AutoGK is great, but it just doesn't work properly with the vbr audio that ALL the tv shows have... that's its only problem. it'd be so great if it could recognize the vbr audio fine

    To paraphrase and old fabric salesman, "Never mind the filesize, feel the quality"

    If the quality is what you need, does it matter if it is slightly smaller ?

    Otherwise, you might post some screenshots of how you set up the encoder. Someone might see something there that will help.

  5. If you are happy with the way you've been doing this (and are certain that it's VBR causing the problem, not something else) one option is to demux the audio, re-encode with CBR, remux audio & video.

    What software are you using to author the DVD? convertxtodvd gives subtitle options like font size, colors, placement etc... but I'm not sure if your standalone player would support this.

    i wanna convert the '.avi' files of the tv shows i download from torrents

    i wish there could be an easier way than demux/mux/convert/burn-in... all these damn lotta things

    i still have faith in AutoGK... i'd like to know how it configures the xvid encoder to generate a file with that exact size

  7. Just set it at 350MB. Or are you saying you've tried this and there still is a problem? (because of VBR)?

    I recall that autoGK had sizing problems with a certain XVID version - people had to revert to and older version to get a proper size
