    Default mpeg4 conversion getting out of control

    Hey there I have some hd mpeg4 videos that I am trying to convert without any loss of quality. I have any video converter and avs video converter 6. This is what i am doing I am converting to avi with a codec of x264 1280 by 720 size video bitrate 5000 frame rate of 29.976. (trial and error open to suggestions) My firs couple of clips converted fine and I could use them in windows move maker or avs video editor. But the next couple of times I tryed this the video comes out fine but it is 2-6 hours long! The video plays then when it is done the screen just goes blank for a very long time. I can cut this off but importing becomes sucky and because it is converting such a "long" video it takes half and hour now! All of my videos are less than a minute long. Why is it making my clips soo long I tried using the convert stop time thing but it doesnt work.

    For copnverotrs I rec super c - try that.

    Set output f rate to same as original - sometimes faster.

    You ALWAYS get a quality loss when converting. To minimize losses ensure you encode to higher bit rate than source file.

    Still no one has answered my question on why the videos get soo long after I convert them. I am happy with the quality that I am getting.
