HI there.

My problem is that with that behavior, I cannot encode a movie in  2 CD for
example,  for example last night I encoded Equilibrium, the file ended up in
a 950 MB one!!, and the quality is not good!!, that's the real problem.
I was trying with transcode, but it's pure pain :))))

I'll try with xvid by the moment and see what happens.

Thanx for your time
