Huge differences?-AVI & MPEG files after Nero's "Tr

Postby btiger on Tue Feb 22, 2005 9:05 pm

I've two files both are about 850MB, one is in .mpeg and the other is in .avi, however when Nero "Transcode" these two files (both using the same specs, (e.g 4:3/704X480/5073kbps....), the .mpeg file became about the same as the original file size, however the .avi file became 3.7GB, how come? Thanks for your feedback/help.

I don't think that the *.avi files are compressed so it transcoded and compressed the *.AVI file to *.mpg. The *.mpg files are already compressed to the original file was just transcoded.

If you try to capture a one hour TV video in both formats, you will see a file size difference like that.
