Okay, I have a question about encoding video. I see in the faq that if you make your vid smaller in HD space then you will have worse quality and if you try to make a video higher quality from original file it won't do anything, like a MP3 to a WAV. Im a little confused about this, and the link they provided for more details doesn't work.
So I have a .mkv vid file that I want to convert to .mp4 so I can watch it on my PS3, and my video converter asks what video bitrate I want, what fps I want, and the resolution, so if I try to make any of these higher than the originals is, it would only make it more space in my HD and wont make the quality better at all? Would it even make it worse? And can I make my video file into a progressive scan vid somehow, I see there's a de-interlace option, is that what you put yes in for progressive scan?
I would also like to know if fps is the same thing as Hz. Also, which video encoding, transcoding, or converting software you pros use? I use the 4Media converter. Sorry about all the noob questions, but it would be much appreciated if someone would answer them.
