what exactly is it doing to my videos? is it just lowering the bit rate?


i ask because it occurred to me i could [possibly] turn the rates up to max on the sliders and let toast figure out the highest rate possible for my media, if my assumption is correct. is it?


and if so, is there a bit rate too high for an average DVD player?

It requantizes the video. It doesn't re-encode it. Maybe there is an explanation for how requantizing works somewhere. You can have too high a bit rate. That certainly can occur if you use PCM audio instead of Dolby AC-3 audio because that in combination with the video can exceed specs and will cause stuttering when played back. Don't turn the bit rate to the maximum. It doesn't gain anything you'll see and can create play back problems.
