Output files are too big after hardsubbing using XVID

I used to hardsub videos using xvid codes using VirtualDubMod. When i hardsubbed a 700mb avi, the file produced is normally 400 - 500mb and i used xvid codec. But now when i hardsub a 700mb avi, the file produced would be 800mb++ And i remember when i click xvid under compression, it will start the format restrictions or something but now it says no known restriction. Please help me thanks

Try using this software instead for all your video encoding purposes... It does everything VirtualDubMod does (especially hardsubbing/softsubbing/etc) and best of all it's much more user friendly..

HandBrake

Here's all-in-one guide to get the best out of that program...

Will try using the programme. But is it okay if you could tell me how to fix the xvid code? because i'm really used to VirtualDubMod and XVID codec. Sorry

I'm not really familiar with the program myself since switching to Handbrake when h264 and mkv encoding became more popular.

Perhaps the following guide from the link below will help you find out what went wrong?
