I just converted an AVI (700 mb) resulting in a 77.4 mb audio file, and a
249 mb video file. After TMPGenc does its simple multiplex the file is now 1.1 gb???
I had the same thing happen yesterday with a DVD rip of A Few Good Men, and though its a long movie, I'll just use Tmpgenc merge and cut to split it into 2 cd-r's. But after I did the merge and cut and went to burn, I found that both files had become reduced and easily fit on 1 cd-r.

What am I doing wrong, or what have I overlooked?

please and thankyou.

I should have metioned it was a Christmas movie (Christmas Vacation) and I used the 360 min KVCD template, because I'd like to get a couple/ few on a disc. It should be way smaller, no?

That's probably due to padding. Try to raise the VBV buffer value and encode again, or multiplex as SVCD with bbMPEG.

Are you sure you multiplexed as VBR and not CBR? This is important too...

Thanks guys for the reply's.

Boulder: yes, that makes sense. I think TPMGenc is strong in certain areas and weak in others. I've never tried BBmpeg before, is there a GUI version?
Where in TMPGenc do I go to raise the
VBV buffer value?

Jellygoose: I used the 360 min KVCD template when I did the encode, so it should be the same in the multiplex, no?
Where would I change it during multiplex?

Hi EightBall,

Click "Settings", and you'll see the "VBV Buffer Size" box on the "Video" tab.
There you can change the value.

Thank You Karl.

Thesetting reads 40. Thats what the 360 min template sets it to right?
I should be messing with that?

Can I pm you? these file sizes are driving me nuts.

Yes. I always use a value of 40

Only if you need
Most probably, no.

Sure, but don't expect an early answer
I only read PM's a couple of times a day, and lately, only once a day.
You'll probably get faster replies posting here in the forum.

Problem Solved.
Was reading some other threads and caught a little comment by Sans-Grip saying that TMPGenc 2.59 was having trouble with files sizes.

Light bulb came on. Checked my recently registered version. Yup 2.59!!
Switched back to 2.58 , re encoded and it was correct.

No offence to TMPGenc, but you'd think the could post a note saying its not working right somewhere.

Thanks to Sans Grips comment, this small nightmare is resolved.

Kwag: Suggestion:
A Forum header: Quirks Unveiled.
Where members can post thier latest discoveries and save others hours .

Mine would Say:
Problem: When muxing in TMPGenc, end result was huge file sizes that exceeded the original source file size.

Solution: Problem was with TMPGenc version 2.59. Uninstall and reinstall of 2.58 fixed everything.

What do you think?


PS. Thanks Karl, I won't be bothering you now that its settled .
