    Bit rate will vary depending on how much you want to be able to store on the disk.

    When I make my dvds, (Using ConvertXtoDVD) it usually tells me that it is converting to around 1500kB/s, for over 5 hours worth of content, and still looks pretty good.

    So a 2000kB/s video stream woulod still look good on a DVD, 15000 is quite a bit over the top.

      These are programs that you have downloaded or copied?

      I'm sorry, we don't assist in piracy.

        Okay, I'm just making sure.

        I'm assuming that you will need something capable of editing a video file.  I don't do this however and will bow out now.

          nymph4, Assuming you do not need help with the actually conversion process because you know how to do it and that if you are only trying to capture from an already existing prerecorded DVD and store only a certain portion of it ( A particular episode) and that you also know how to do that. Then the question you ask is only pertaining to the default conversion rate and what that will do to the ultimate quality of the "new" file then my suggestion would be to purchase a few DVD-RW's and experiment and see what variables you chose in the copy rate produce as a final result when you record them to the DVD-rw's. You won't be wasting any discs and the RW's today are about the same cost as the single record ones.truenorth
