yes, I recorded Panic Room on Pro7 and tried to reencode it, because 14GB are
far too large for DVD ;-)
I used projectX to demux and correct the .vdr-Files, then video and audio are
multiplexed again to a mpg-file.
Afterwards I used ffmpeg to encode the film (in two passes):
ffmpeg -i Inputfile.mpg -vcodec mpeg4 -pass 1 -passlogfile logfile -ac 2
-acodec mp3 -ab 128 -sameq -hq outfile.avi
All that was done with a small shellscript, which i originally made for
converting short movies to divx.
The resulting file is 6,5 GB in size, picture quality is perfect ("-sameq")
but I experienced problems with audio (no sound after 1:05:00), with other
tests I got unsynced audio with xine, synced audio with gmplayer ...
That has to be tested further ..
But back to your original question - with the above mentioned parameters for
ffmpeg it should be fine.
ffmpeg also could copy the audio: -acodec copy,
that would reduce some of the problems I have ;-)
I hope this is helpful for you,
