    Video Quality: How many files to a dvd?
    I have over a hundred video files (.rm's converted to mpeg if that helps) that I wish to burn to a disk, since they're only 30ish mb each I can fit probably 200!1 tto 1 single dvd, but I heard that reduces the quality of the movie drasticaly! How many do you suggest I put on a dvd? I'd like to fit as many as possible without making the video look crappy..the quality is meh to begin with so I can't afford anything less.

    Are you trying to make a DVD you can play in a set top box? Or are you placing them on a data dvd for storage (to play back on a computer)?

    DVD video is MPEG2. If the files are currently in MPEG1, you'll not know the final size.

    A better way to figure this out is to get 120 minutes of footage. Then you'll know you're getting decent quality.
    In whatever program you're going to use, add the files until you reach 120 minutes.
