I apologize for the redundancy of this post. Most people wish for ipod/iphone encoding which should be easy enough (limiting the file to 300 pixels wide makes a big difference). But I want good quality movies for standard definition TV. I see AVI files all the time that are good quality, yet are only 600-800 MB in size depending on the length of the video. Handbrake encodes moves with good quality, however they end up being 1.3GB or more in size. In order to save space, what settings would give me the best quality while keeping it at around 700MB in size? By selecting "Target size Mb: 700" I end up losing quality, it gets pixelated (if that's a word) and looks terrible on TV. Especially for dark films like "Aliens". How do people get file sizes down that much and still have good quality?
