To make a 700mb.avi movie out of a 6,7, or 8GB DVD Folder with Minimal quality loss is to start with your actual disc DVD an use a Decrypter like DVDfab since there’s is free. When stripping the movie make sure the option for DVD-9 is selected, this will make the DVD file huge like I said above but you know have the DVD unprotected and on your computer’s HD. At this point USE ~“AutoGK”~ to compress the DVD Folder into a single small 700mb .AVI by selecting the VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.IFO(sometimes this is not always the case-you need the .IFO file which is the info file for the video[there are tutorials for this]) After selecting your movies IFO file you need to select your output folder. Then select your “Custom Disc Size” and set it to 700mb. Go to the “Advanced Settings” and select “Minimum Width”=720 and also select the VBR MP3 for audio codec. click “ok”. Now if you want subtiltiles burned into the film select them now, I never do because these will not be optional, they will be permanent. So just skip it if you can understand the language the movie is recorded in. Now just click “Add Job” then Double Check you made all the changes and have the OUTPUT SIZE is set to CUSTOM 700mb. All this will take anywhere from 2-4 hours if you have an older computer like me(Single-Core). Good luck everyone, as it seems the underground scene is all about movies in a 700mb CD size clip, screw the large 8gig movies, cut it down to a half a GB....lol Again quality loss is for example like watching HBO on a old TV with Tubes and Vaccums, the picture is good and clear but just not Crisp like the New HD TV’s. VERY Super good quality for reducing a movies size by about 15 fold.
I was really luck that I didn’t come accross such problem when I burn avi to DVD Mac, the quality seems OK on my home DVD player.
