    How did a file meant to be made smaller wind up larger than the original?

    I'm trying to re-encode a movie that is about 6GB down to 4GB, I want to keep the video bitrate the same, but knock down the audio from 5.1 to 2.0, and I went to use Handbrake to do this, but I wound up with a file than was larger (13GB) than what I started with? How did this happen? I can't...

    Most Common File Format?

    Hope I have this in the right place. I've been working on a project and have run into a problem. I've encoded some files with Handbrake which output them as .m4v files. Is this a common file type that most devices will be able to play? I've loaded these onto a flash drive as a surprise gift, but...

    Video encoding question

    Hello, I'm new to video editing and am still learning the basics. One thing I am really surprised about is the final size of videos. I put together from several videos a 3 minute finished product, and the final encoded file size is almost 800 MB for a 3 minute video. Even considering the 24...

    Any way to make choppy video files un-choppy?

    Did you ever wish there was a database showing Vegas 12 speed with various CPU/GPU options in actual use? Data for this is currently sparse and typically not helpful to make a specific upgrade decision. I'm building this tabulation, and would appreciate that all Vegas 12 users volunteer to...

    Handbrake now supporting Quicksync?

    From Engadget: "Quick Sync accelerated video encoding will get a 50 to 80 percent bump, while support has also been added for Handbrake, the open source video transcoder." Does anyone know if this is the case? I would think Engadget would be correct but there is nothing that I can find on the...

    What program to use for 32 cores

    Best video encoding software that uses quad core technology

    Anyone know of any free software that uses all 4 cores? I convert videos occasionally to watch on my ps3 and the video converters I use don't seem to utilize all the processor speed that's avaliable to it. Most of the time, it only uses 1 or 2 threads even when multi threading is enabled. Can...
