    Snow Leopard Filesize Issue

    Base-10 calculations mean that 1 KB = 1,000 bytes, 1 MB = 1,000 KB and 1 GB = 1,000 MB Base-2 calculations mean that 1 KB = 1,024 bytes, 1 MB = 1,024 KB and 1 GB = 1,024 MB (This is how pretty much every OS has calculated file size since... well... always, I think.) Media and hard drive manufacturers advertise capacity in Base-10 calculations, which is why connecting a "500 GB" hard drive to your computer will yield a 473 GB capacity, or why "4.7 GB" DVD+Rs only show as having a capacity of ~4.37 GB in the OS. You can read more about the switch here: http://lifehacker.com/5349204/snow-leopard...ctly-in-base-10 (or by searching for "snow leopard base 10" on Google)

    Snow Leopard Filesize Issue

    Is it possible for Toast to calculate file size the same way that Snow Leopard does (since Apple made the switch to Base-10 counting instead of the typical Base-2 for file sizes)? When burning discs I try to fill them to the absolute brim. The discrepancy between Toast's Base-2 calculations and the Finder's Base-10 calculations kinda makes it a huge pain in the &%$.

    Fit-to-DVD and Subtitles

    I'm curious about how Popcorn 3 handles subtitles. Does it automagically recognise certain subtitles as being forced and enable them when encoding VIDEO_TS folders to a DVD? What about foreign movies? I haven't seen an area where one can specify to have a certain subtitle stream enabled by default.
