View Full Version : Video Bitrate

2008-10-12, 06:01 PM
I have a DVD that I recorded and authored.
I checked the video bitrate in G-Spot but the DVD has 3 .VOB files, each with a slightly different bit rate.

VTS_01_1.VOB is 6407 kbps
VTS_01_2.VOB is 6592 kbps
VTS_01_3.VOB is 6828 kbps

Should I list the lowest or highest?
Should I add all 3 (19827) and take the avg (6609)?

I have all the other info and synched audio from my CSB source and made it LCPM.
This bitrate thing is the only stumbling block.

Thanks :)

Average is the most correct. It's better to check m*v file rather than VOBs, however, difference is usually negligible.

Thanks for the reply :)
I assumed the avg was correct but wanted to check to be sure.

I am afraid I don't know what m*v file is.
I was followin the faq for video uploading and it does not mention this and I couldn't find anything on google.

VOB is a container, and when audio and video streams are separated (demuxed) you get:
* Video only, which has extension m2v or mpv
* Audio: ac3, mp2 (or mpa), wav

Thanks for the info-
Learn something new everyday :)

(I didn't realize earlier that '*' was being used as a wild card- I was thinking "that is a really odd file name" LOL- my brain clearly did not have enough caffeine)

I searched the archives here and found a post you made about MPEG Streamclip and ProjectX.
Interesting stuff- looks like it will be very useful to me.
