Why are some converted files to large?

Nov 20, 2013 at 3:36 AM
I am converting WTV files to MP4. The duration of the show is around 22 minutes. Most of my converted files are in the 2G range. Every once in a while I will get a file that is only around 300-400MB,

These are all the same show, .just different episodes recorded OTA from the same station. They are older shows so they were originally broadcast in SD,

Why is there such an enormous difference between file sizes?

I noticed that on my smaller files, the frame width property is set to 720P but on the larger files, it is blank.

I have my width setting set to it's maximum setting as I read in the documentation that the width of the video will be used. But the original was 720, could mce buddy still be converting to 1080?

No mcebuddy does not upscale unless you've written a custom profile to do it.

You will need to refer to the logs for more details on what's going on
