I have some recordings I wanted to save off and make a bit smaller in size. They are approx 5-6 gb each(mpeg2 HD recordings). I tried to use the transcode in the mythweb page. It changed the file from 5.2 gb to 11.4 gb in size! I thought the transcode feature was to shrink the file in size?
Only thing I changed was the setting in autodetect from rtjpeg to mpeg4.
I cant find any good info on transcoding in mythtv. Anyone got a decent howto on it?
