file size limiting?

Post by Stride »

is there a way to set handbrake just to create the best quality video it can given a file size limit?

i'd like to backup each of DVDs on one CD.

It's called "use a bit rate calculator to figure out what bit rate is needed to make a file of HH:MM length only 700MB long, use 2 pass mode with that bit rate set as maximum."

Target file size is a guess at best. And targeting such a small media will mean you lose a LOT of detail on anything with much movement.
