Hello,

I have a quick question please. I have done a couple of KDVD's recently at different resolutions. The first was 2 films roughly 2hrs each at resolution 720x576. i then did another with 3 films at resolution 704x576 resized. Although both were good it started me thinking about Max films per disk.

Q. I was wondering if i resized to 1/2 DVD resolution i.e. 352x576 approxomitly how many movies at roughly 2hrs duration each could i expect to fit on an average 4.7GB DVD-R.

Thanks,
Blubear

352x576 = 202,752 pixels.
704x576 = 405,504 pixels.

So in theory, twice. In practice, it's less, because of the need to increase bitrate to compensate for the loss of the lower resolution.

By experience :
- 2 movies in 704x576 with 2 audio
- 3 movies in 544x576 with 1 audio (not standard but played by all my players)
- 8 tv show episodes (43 min each) in 352x576 with 2 audio
- 10 tv show episodes in 480*576 wit one audio (still not compliant)
- 36 full screen japanime (23 min each) in 352x288 with one audio.

AC3 5.1 audio, if you encode in MP2, you might be able to squeeze 3 movies.

Same as above, but change the 576 for 480 and the 288 for 240.
