I have encoded 2 videos for my housemate that she recorded on her video camera (1080p 25fps).
One file is 43mins (Barre - 389mb), the other is 46mins (Dance - 1.25GB).
What i'm trying to understand is how an additional 3 mins of footage has resulted in a video that has TRIPLED in size?? I went back through other encodes that I've done for her, and noticed the same thing - both sets of videos will have between 3-5mins difference, but one will be 2-3x larger.
I thought that it was perhaps because they were consecutive encodes and it's perhaps a bug in Handbrake, but even when trying it as a single encode, then closing and restarting HB, still produces the same result.
Original footage is 1080p, 25fps (AVCHD container)
Output is 1080p, 25fps, mp4 container, very fast encode preset, no subs
Can not work out why this keeps happening, but it's driving both of us crazy because it doesn't make any sense.
Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7
