The maximum bitrate for DVD video is 8MBps. However, recordable DVDs are not as reflective as stamped DVDs so it is highly recommended to not go above 7MBps. If you use 8MBps, your DVD could skip and choke while playing because the player can’t read it well enough to keep up. Its like driving a car with a dirty windshield in the glaring sun. If you can’t see you need to slow down or crash.
