I don't understand this, because with DVDFab the resolution options seem to be determined by the DVD being ran. Yes, there are options to select from, but the best I remember, the largest was 848x???, and the default is always 720x???. None of which equal screen resolution. When the video is played, it does fill my 1920x1080 screen, so where would downsizing come into play?

EDIT: I just woke up and realized that you are talking about HD, rather than regular DVD, which I was thinking of. I have no idea of what the resolution options are for BD or HD output with DVDFab.
I know many may disagree, but as far as DVD FAB, Ive tried and didn't like it all.
The quality was really bad, IMHO.
I don't know if I would agree. Not that I have much experience in comparing the output of other programs to it, but only comparing DVDFab's output to that of playing the DVD directly. Are you saying that some programs improve on what can be played directly from the DVD?
I made a brief tutorial of using MeGUI if you want to give it a try & are unfamiliar with it.
Depending on just how brief it is, because as you may perceive, I'm not currently all that unhappy with DVDFab. I'm wondering if your perception of the program was using it on W7, because I have found that it runs far, far better on XP x64.

If you are happy with the results of DVD Fab, certainly stick with it. We all have different preferences & opinion, I was merley sharing mine.

Im not sure I understand the resolution question.
Any Video played at full screen will fill an entire 1080 monitor.

Even if it encoded the Video at 720x400. But the higher resolution the Source is, the better the Image quailty will be when played back full screen.

By downsizing, I mean taking a BD disc, (which is a native 1920x1080 resolution) and recoding it into a MP4 or MKV file at a resolution of 1280x720.

For example, even though both will fill a 1080P screen when played back at full screen, the 1280x720 Resolution will look far better than something encoded at say 720x400.

It will also be extremly difficult to tell the difference between the original 1080P BluRay, and an encoded 720P version (if the encoder is setup right and high enough bitrate).

Yes, I use Megui under Win7 x64.

**EDIT** ... Ah yes, I was refering to HD video encoding. Sorry If I misunderstood.

Yes, I use Megui under Windows 7 x64.
Not that it really matters, but I was asking if your experience with DVDFab was on W7, not Megui. I don't know about end results, but DVDFab is much more stable and faster on XP x64, than W7. I thought that somehow that speed and stability might also produce better results.

You will be outputting the converted file to the hard disk.

BSOD's Encoding DVD-Video
I have been trying to create a DVD-Video using Nero software. This has caused blue screens multiple times tonight. The encoding will work for maybe a third of the video then the PC crashes. The BSOD's have different headings, one mentioned a hardware error and another said that a driver had overran...

Encoding Speed
By speed, I'm not referring to the amount of time that an encodes takes, but the FPS at which it runs. I understand that there are a lot of variables from one movies to another, which probably accounts for the differences in FPS on each, but since I have encountered movies that seem similar on the...

MeGUI encoding problem
Everytime I finished all the procedure listed,I always end up with a video with no audio. I have checked the audio input and output and also I have specified the NeroXXX codec. Any thoughts? And also does MeGui is still recommended for encoding x264 these days? Is StaxRip any better?

Encoding Speed
I have noticed that the encoding speed varies widely, while encoding from a DVD. So far I have experienced anywhere from 60 FPS to 279 FPS. This can not be due to disk condition or hardware/software in use, because with all of these being equal, the speed is quite different with each disk. I...
