Is there any way to force Adobe Media encoder’s *.m2v format video bitrate setting lower than 1.5? I want to experiment with getting more video on a DVD. I am using Media Encoder CC 2018, but if I need to use another version I can. Thanks
You can try exporting as Format: MPEG2
Change multiplexer to DVD, you can than change the bitrate down to 0.19.
I haven't worked with DVDs in ages though so not sure if this will work for you.
But Encore may not accept the muxed .mp4 as legal. Worth a try.
Also, the MPEG2 format, rather than MPEG2-DVD, is harder to get DVD compliant. I'll have to see if it also gets down to 0.19.
Assuming he's using Encore.
