Hi folks, I apologise for this one - its a variant of a lot of questions that have come up about Handbrake but I haven't quite found the answer when searching the forums. I notice that the illegal download community is now using x264 to encode tv episodes in good quality at a filesize of between 300-350MB per 42-minute episode. Quality is good for SD and very watchable. Now I want to rewatch my X-files dvds and I thought why not rip them and watch them in bed on the laptop or iphone. Well I've ripped a disc and tried various different handbrake settings, but I can never hit that magic 300-350 MB filesize. It's not a big deal, really, but I'm curious as to where I'm going wrong - I've stuck to the presets, perhaps changing the RF by 1 or 2, and the quality is excellent - I wonder if its that they are scaling the picture size down slightly... Anyhow, my files are usually double that, at least... Any experts out there able to comment?
