#3610, "What Settings for 2 Hours of Mpeg in 4 GB File Size?"


          

Using default settings Kino exports to 8-DVD-mpeg in a form whereby 1 hour of video will fit on the standard 4.7GB DVD.

Are there settings for causing the mpeg output to be smaller - lowering the bitrate, etc - so that I can fit 2 hours of video onto the blank DVD? E.g., parameters I could put in the 'Video Pipe' field?

(Note: If I feed Kino mpeg export into DeVeDe to accomplish this I get a variety of problems, such as out-of-sync audio, missing frames, etc. So I am trying to get Kino to produce the desired final mpeg files and use DeVeDe only for the dvd authoring with no transcoding.)

Any help appreciated.

See man mpeg2enc to learn how to adjust the bitrate. Then, see this to learn how to supply the option within Kino:

You simply need to do some math. The size is 4.7 GB, but you need to understand GB != GiB. The former is a factor of 1000; the other a factor of 1024. Then, let's consider there may be some formatting and filesystem overhead, add a dose of conservatism, and choose 4 GB as a size:
4*1000*1000*1000 / 3600 / 2
(3600 seconds in an hour and 2 hours)
= 555555 kbps
