Be Mindful Of Bit Rates In DVD Studio Pro

After you have created a few DVD's you will discover that some of your projects will fit onto discs easier than others, such as some of the shorter pieces you have done.

Although this would seem to be the logical thing to do in order to achieve better quality, there are also other factors you should consider before using the maximum allowed value.
