When I choose the highest quality "save as file on your computer", I got a bit rate of 2624 kbps for audio and for video I got 856 x 480 pixels (a ratio I wanted for wide screen TV) and a data rate of 434 kbps (I'm NOT happy with that number!).
When I chose the "save as DVD" option, the numbers were 2079 kbps audio, and video 720 x 480 and 1900 kbps. I'm unable to find an ini file that will let me control these "save as" properties. Is there another file or a registry key somewhere that lets me change the image size, bit rate and data rate of the wmv file that will be created?
