Because you're transcoding to mpeg-2, which takes up more space than some of the newer video codecs (eg H.264)dkainer wrote:1. When transferring video's, I get 2 files, an MEncoder and the standard file that was on the laptop. Why is this? The MEncoder file is a lot larger than the original file ie. 4.6 GB vs 708MB, both files playback the same, no noticeable difference.
Transcoding takes files that are not PS3 compatible and converts them to a PS3 ready format, and it does this without the need to manually do this yourself or create temp files.dkainer wrote:2. Any info regarding, what transcoding is? Any advisable settings dependant on video format? ie. What settings do you use?
Yes, if the file is already PS3 compatible.dkainer wrote:3. Can I transfer files without transcoding so that I just get the original file?
