Hi All, I've searched the forums and whilst there are lots of posts around the various aspects of what I am trying to do - there doesn't seem to be any that specifically answer my question. I have detailed my questions below and the background to these below: a) Is there anyway in CloneDVDMobile to set the "maximum" bitrate above which the encoding will not go regardless of the quality setting? b) If a) above is not possible is there any way of seeing what the maximum bitrate used was after the encoding is complete (the video bitrate window says to click for more details on the frame statistics but this doesn't seem to work for me) If I'm missing anything obvious then please feel free to point it out. Video encoding is not something I'm that familiar with tbh p.s. great product SlySoft --- Background I've been experimenting with archiving some DVD's using CloneDVDmobile for wireless playback using a PS3. Whilst I've used CloneDVDmobile for playback on an Archos previously; these files were always optimised for size rather than quality and were stored locally on the Archos. This time I've gone for quality over file size as I'm playing these on a bigger screen. I've selected DivX for the speed and done a few test runs at the higher end of the video slider. However, I'm a bit confused over the "Estimated output" compared to what I actually get.... For example using a sample 2 hour dvd at maximum quality (_28_) using 720x576 PAL TV resolution. This reports "Estimated Output File Size 2.73GB. 2835kbps" which I thought would be fine over wireless G transmission. During encoding the statistics window regularly shows peaks over the 4/5 line and reading elsewhere the scale for this appears to be 10Mbs suggesting an encoding of >8Mbs. This also seems to be the case during play back which hits specific segments that cause unwatchable stuttering. Looking at the playback stats indicates that this starts to happen when the feed goes above around 6-7Mbs. Below this and everything is fine with the ps3 hitting the wireless in pulses rather than continuously. This stuttering doesn't occur on playback of the original disks which also regularly go over this limit so I'm assuming it is the wireless struggling to stream the bitrate. So to stream these I need to be able to remove these "peaks" in the bitrate preferably without lowering the quality for the whole session.
