Newbie Question: Compressing For Blu-ray



I have some EyeTV recordings that are HD (MPEG-2/AC3). My understanding was that I could take these files, and then create a Dual Layer DVD that was Blu-Ray format containing these files. When I try that the only message I get is "These files are too large to be burned to this disk" even when I set the encoding settings to be MPEG-4 AVC with AC3 Audio.


What am I doing wrong?

You probably have recordings that are too long. You can only fit about 1/2 an hour of HD content on a dual layer DVD.


This is the case regardless of the compression? My understanding was that if you encoding something at a low enough bit rate (5 mb/sec) you could get up to two hours of HD video on a DL DVD.
