Something is going wrong with compressing

Post by Ellinas »

I made one video already 2 weeks ago and it was compressed from 49.8 MB to 8.3 MB, but last 3 days I am fighting trying to compress another video 48.8 MB and it becomes 138 MB after compression.I tried everything possible and no succeed at all. Maybe somebody knows where the problem is?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

Handbrake version is 1.3.3

Operating system is Windows 10

the activity log isn't complete and your setting is non-visible, I would recommend in my way:
1. open "video" tag before transcode, select lower resolution preset, like a 1080 (original) to 720 (destined) and drag the "quality" to leftmost the "lower quality", encode the video and see if the file size would be reduced.

2. Use other converter, like [Removed Dubious 3rd party products], see if the size problem is still here.
