Hmmm ... I personally find the DVD video format a bit awkward ... you know, all the stuff about the MPEG-2 files having to be in a certain resolution, in a certain format, and all the other trap doors that DVD videos have, conversion to *.VOB and so on .... Really, I always found this most annoying. So when I do something like the things you wrote in your posting, I right away create DIVX or XVID files. DIVX files are way smaller, so more stuff can fit onto a 8.5 GB dual-layer disk, and the funny thing is: Most modern DVD set-top boxes can handle DIVX + XVID and many other modern formats such as MPEG-4. And most people I know (friends, family, coworkers, etc.) have this kind of modern player and when we exchange such stuff (e.g. videos about our family events) we usually do it with these formats ... because they are so much less complicated to get working.jasonwatkins wrote:what i'm essentially trying to do is create a compilation DVD of three stand up comedy DVD's - i want to rip each of them and compress them to around 2.7gb each, so they can fit nicely on an 8.5gb DL disc.

It's just that I have the impression that whoever created the standard for DVD videos didn't really have us home users in mind ... or else I'd assume that the format wouldn't be so damn complicated and put you through so many hassles. (Just my opinion).
