I am currently trying to rip a dvd I have that contains 20 min tv shows. I downloaded one of the episodes to see what the x264 version looked like, and it was perfect quality at 175megs. When I rip it using MeGUI using oneclick at a size of 175 megs, it comes out completely blocky. I mean to the point where its hardly visible. So the question I have is, am I doing something wrong? Im putting the audio at stereo and the video using x264 2 pass. I ripped out one episode of the dvd to try this out so I can just put them on my media player(360) and not have to change discs for my son.
If any1 has an idea what I should be doing as opposed to what I might be doing - it would help out a TON!

But even at 700kbps for 640x480 frame size shouldn't yield any blocking, unless you diabled deblocking or used negative alpha/beta deblocking values, or have your playback decoder set to skip deblocking
I don't use the auto encode or one-click encode features, just the manual method
OHH MAN! Handbrake is friggin awesome! MeGUI took about 4 hours to encode a 20 minute episode and the size was around a gig. With Handbrake i am getting 175 megs everytime and looks perfect! Ohh also it only takes 8 minutes to encode.
THANK U VERY MUCH every1!
btw - u all just made my sone very happy( and me cause i dont have to change discs anymore )
