Max bit rate for standard dvd-5
by Jason MacLeod on Jan 2, 2006 at 7:29:47 pm
What is the max bit rate that most set top dvd players can handle. ie, if I have a 30 min video can I crank up the bit rate to 10+?
Also, do you have any preferences out there as to using the background encoding in DVDSP 4 or to use Compressor 2 befor importing the assets into DVDSP 4. Also, for standard output to a DVD-5 with lots of motion video, should I use "One Pass" or "Two Pass VBR". And what setting should they be at?

8.0 Mbps with 192 Kbps Ac3 stereo audio- assuming one track video and one stereo audio track. Personally always use Compressor and not DVDSP for encoding. Stick with the high quality presets and you'll be fine.
