Use the following:
Bitrate no higher than 1500k
Video no larger than 640x480
Using 2 pass will give you better quality and an only slight higher file size. This will come in handy should you choose to watch the video on a regular TV at some point.
Remember, the lower the bitrate and video size, the smaller the resulting file will be.
Most of mine are ripped at 320x240 with a bitrate between 750K and 1200K.
There is a guide HERE
, although it is a bit dated the settings will still work and it's a good walk through (there were changes in the GUI between 8.0 and 8.5). Eventually I'll update it though.
There are threads in the HandBrake Forums
about this too.
