I know there was discussion about this but i read through everything and just couldn't find the answer.
I have an MKV file size 23.7GB.
I have used MKVToolNix to add subtitle and after that I imported file to BD Rebuilder with an output for BD-25. After the process I got the file bigger that it was, 25.1GB.
What I am doing wrong?
Thanks so much for all the help in advance
This is my current setup

Didn't change absolutely anything. Literally download latest version of it, went through all read me files, installed everything that needs to be installed and no success. I also tried changing output size to custom target size as it is 23500 but still converted to 25.1. Quite weird to be honest. Last year when i was more into this, i was doing it no issues, don't know what's happening now.
You would have to set Custom Target Size to say 20'000 Megabytes and select 'Custom Target Size (.....)' in the menu Settings-> Output Options
Did you encode (Menu Settings -> Encoder Settings):
- One Pass (CRF) Encodieng
- One Pass (ABR) Encoding
- Two Passes Encoding?
Btw. see the author's disclaimer regarding pre-processed sources.
This is driving me nuts. I tried so many things. I change the custom target size to 22Gb, didn't work. Tried to change to 20GB, same thing.
After that I unchecked CRF and left it only on one pass, still the same. Tried using several different MKV files and on each file he basically adds few GB after the process, actually enlarges the file. I tried few different versions of BD Rebuilder, my codecs are all fine and installed in proper order as per read me file. I also tried on a different pc, installed everything fresh and was getting the same thing with different MKV files. None of them was below 25GB. Instead of small compression, he makes it bigger.
I dont know what else to do. BD Rebuilder is such an amazing program and it was working perfectly.
Anybody else has any information that could help me please?
Thank you so much
I don't use the BD Rebilder, so I don't know if my hint is helpful. Check if there is a folder called BD_Rebuilder (or similar) in this folder:
C:\users\xxx\AppData\Local (where xxx is your username in Windows).
If so, copy it somewhere as a backup and then delete it in the above folder. Then restart BD Rebuilder and try again.
As I wrote before: It's not sufficient to set the target size only. You must also select it in the menu:
Settings -> Output Options -> Custom Target Size (...... MB).
If you think you have discovered a bug you should report it in the doom9 forum.
