    I am searching for a source of information detailing the capacities and
    running times of programmes burned to CD and DVD using all the amazing
    variety of compression systems, file formats, codecs, screen sizes, display
    players (Real, WMP, Quicktime), and the optional settings and variations of
    each.of these. And it would be great if recommendations for quality were
    also given.
    Does such a tome exist in download form or as a reference on-line site? It's
    a nightmare!!

    Thank you Larry. It is a sad fact that I know most of what you have said and
    I do appreciate that source content will always be a variable but I guess I
    was clutching at straws in the forlorn hope that someone, somewhere has done
    all the work I am trying to avoid and had it documented to some degree.
    Someone once said to me "get a life!" and that is what I am trying to do
    rather than sit in front of an infernal crashing machine grinding its way
    through multiple conversions using multiple codecs with multiple setting
    options for multiple players to see which is best for that particular video
    for streaming or powerpoint or flash or whatever..............before
    actually getting around to doing it!

    Just a thought!

  3. Much of this is already posted at
    Suggest looking there first and then seeking what is missing.
