I can turn a rendered .MP4 into a .VOB with an authoring tool (WinX app). The .MP4 is about 2.3 Gb. The .VOB is something like 200 Mb and the resolution is nothing like the .MP4. How do I coerce an authoring tool to just pass the source file straight through without shrinking it?
ADDED: I dropped WinXDVDwhatever (it’s bundled with other stuff I do need) for AVItoDVD. I changed the MS codecs for LAV codecs. I raised the upper bound for rate to 9000 (MediaInfo says the video maxes out at 8900+). The file’s now mildly longer but still nowhere the original 2.3 Gb.
