I'm still new at ripping/encoding, but I've completed about 50 of my DVDs at this point... so here's my question... looking back at the file sizes of those encoded using TV2 settings, I found one that is surprisingly large, the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, vol 4. The file size is 2.9 GB with a bit rate of 160 and a total bit rate of 3575...and a running time of 1hr46min. Most of the movies I've encoded have ended up with a total bit rate of 1400-1700, and the file sizes are less than 2gb. Could I have just hit the wrong preset? Does handbrake leave any indication of the preset used to encode? or is there something about particular DVDs that cause you to end up with a larger file size?
