I am just curious to know, if the following file sizes sound ok after
transcoding with ffmpeg. Let me know what other information maybe needed.
I have an input video of around 10:11 of video in mp4. Conversion to mpg
with ffmpeg is done as follows.
ffmpeg -i in.mp4 -vf subtitles=sub.srt -codec:v mpeg2video -codec:a mp3
The mpg is then converted to VOB as follows. This is so that dvdauthor can
be used to add titles, chapters, etc.
ffmpeg -i in.mpg -target ntsc-dvd in.vob
After dvdauthor is run on in.vob, I am converting the DVD structure to .iso.
So, the file sizes are as follows:
in.mp4 - ~20MB
in.mpg - ~30MB
in.vob - ~109MB
dvd.iso - ~219MB
Thus, in other words, a 10 minute video is around 200MB in ISO format. I
understand, the behaviour of dvdauthor and mkisofs is not in the scope of
this forum. But, in your experience, is this 10 fold increase normal ?
