So even though I made every little detail in the export options the same or smaller (I even had a significantly smaller bitrate), the file size is always like twice as big as my original wmv file.
The original file:
1680x1050 (yeah, its a desktop dimension..)
data rate 4576kbps
total bitrate 4624kbps
sample rate 44kHz
Ok so I'm using the following specs to encode:
multiplexing mp4, stream capability none
NTSC 1680x1050 square pixels
Main profile level 4.2
AAC 48kbps 44.1kHz mono
VBR 1 pass
target 3.00 max 4.62 Mbps (with this bitrate it should be a lot smaller right?)
So yeah.. my file size after exporting is 666 MB (MARK OF THE BEAST O.o)
Any ideas? These videos are going to be hosted and streamed from our server so the file size needs to be small but they are also pretty high def, obviously I thought H.264. Starting to get a little frustrated.
Still learning when it comes to video. Any help is greatly appreciated
