I have a 60 min video in mpeg2 and 3 wave audio for a DVD project. When I try to build and burn to DVD-5, the stupid computer keep saying that the video bit rate is too high. It stopped when muxing VTS-01-1.vob starts. I already put the encoding bit rate to 2. Can anyone help me?

Use A.Pack to encode the audio files to 192Kbps if they are Stereo.

You should be fine with a bitrate of about 8500 Kb/s (actually, you could go up to 8850 if you do not have any menus). You need to convert your audio files to AC3 first, though (I would recommend a rate of 224 Kb/s).
If you don't feel like converting the audio files, you can only go up to 5000 Kb/s, which I would not do.

You have a 9mb/sec data rate (approx) that needs to cover audio and video, if you are using .wav or .aiff audio, then you are using 1411Kb/sec (1.4mb/sec) for the audio, and your video data rate should not exceed 7mb/sec, if you limit the data rate by converting to a stereo AC3 file as has been suggested, then you can use up to 8.5mb/sec (approx).

So, you have two choices, re-encode your video to a lower rate MPEG2 or re-encode your audio to AC3. I'm assuming that your video is already below the nominal 9mb/sec.
