View Full Version : Doing a compressability check?

2nd May 2003, 09:07
And a feature I also like is the compressability test which will help you in the following ways:
1) Decision to make 1 or 2 CD's.
2) Prevent undersized movies.
3) Fine-tune the parameters (especially the resolution) to attain 'optimum' quality (optimum of course being 'in the eye of the beholder').


I read the above posting in the Gordian Knot forum.

Could someone please explain to me.......

1. How to do a compressability test in 0.28

2. How to interpret the results.

For example, I have just done a rip of 'The Client'. Yet my divX file is only 593MB when it should be 700MB.

Have a look at the updated doom9 GK guides. They should cover your needs.

Compressibility test > 100% is likely to cause undersized files.

jonny wrote a short 'guide' on how to manually do a compcheck:

in the same forum (divx 5 encoding) there's a sticky about why you get undersized files. might also be interesting for you!

"yet my divX file is only 593MB when it should be 700MB"
this rather seems to me like a wrong setting or so. how was the quality? i guess not too good, am i right?
