You can't make the filesize smaller while maintaining the quality... Encoding movies is a science that is hard to master. I've wasted hours of my life encoding the same file over and over again..

Just buy it on DVD, the movie is worth 20 bucks... :D

Why would you want it smaller?? A standard DVD-R is 4.7GB in size. Unless, of course, you're trying to burn it to a CD-R. :lol:

i want to make files smaller because i want to tape all 16 dolphin games (plus play-offs) on my computer and keep all of them on without deleting anything.

i guess that each game will be about 8-10 GB to get good quality, so I will need about 160 GB for all the games and my computer has less then that in GBs.

'the rock' is taped at 1.5GB, but the quality sucks (absolutely terrible) .... i am practicing with movies to get my game skills ready for the season.

if i could 'rip' the games, i could get more on my computer .... so i guess i can't do what i want?
