Tips on adjusting video file size and quality

When ripping Blu-ray ISO to H.264 videos, you may click “Settings” to adjust file size and quality. There is a box of video “Bitrate” on the Profile panel, which is related to file size and quality. By default “medium quality” is applied, which means a Blu-ray ISO of 20GB will be downsized to 8-9GB, and the picture quality is great on PC and HDTV. When “high quality” is set, the file size is doubled, and video quality will be improved (unnoticeably on PC). When “low quality” is set, the file size will be cut down to around 3GB, and you get videos of DVD quality.
