    Unhappy How to know the target file size in FlasKmpeg?

    Hi, I am a starting newbie trying to get DVD to avi conversion. I read the guide on this site and followed the instructions using smartripper and FlasKMpeg.
    One problem: I can't find any place that can indicate to me the final avi file size in FlasKMpeg 0.594. I wanted to limit it to sub 700Mb to put on one disk. Without that I can't really adjust the resolution etc.
    Any expert can give me some advice?
    Thank you!

    A calculator should help a lot here. Also, if you're using DivX3.11, avoid using fast-motion, as it is very unpredictable and in addition, does not look good.

    Thanks Enchanter. I am using the Divx 5.01. So you mean I should manually calculate the size? But what's the average compression rate of video and audio ( I am using MP3)?

    It's not easy to predict how well videos compress, but a calculator will definitely help you get a starting point, from where you can vary the bitrate to reach the desired filesize.

    Enchanter - fast motion looks great on some movies and file size is very very low!

    Believe me I have tried it not once but 5 times on 5 different movies.
