I am sure this question comes up all the time. I have read many post here, and summerize what I have found below.

Someone posted the following, "Video rate = 8mbps or lower, audio 192Kbps Ac3 Stereo."

Is this really the best settings for creating the most compatible DVD?

Any thoughts on this? Did I miss something below(or have something incorrect)?

Thanks for your input,

That sounds right, but I have stuck to these settings for
the last 6 years and they have produced perfect playback
(and I do hundreds of titles per year)

7mb max bitrate on the video.

8mb is too high in my book. dvd-+r has little error correction
unlike replicated media so you want the bitrate as low as possible
to avoid skipping across the greatest spectrum of players.

256kbps on the audio with dolby.

I think 192kbps while ok is not quite good enough so i always
do 256.

I have found -R media by Ritek to be VERY compatible with most of the install base of players, but thats just me.
