DVD Bitrate Calculator Lite is a simple and yet very powerful tool for estimating video bitrates for your DVD-R disk. It supports a variety of media sizes, such as DVD-5, DVD-9, HD-DVD, and BluRay among others. You can specify a number of audio tracks, menus and subtitle tracks that you want to include in your DVD, and this application will spit out the correct bitrate for video compression to achieve best possible quality. You'll also be presented with estimated data sizes.

After you've done your calculations you can easily save the results to a text file to store information, or even better - you can save a Compressor more...

Though the UI is not that nice to look at, it is most certainly a handy tool.
Thanks for the free app!

Great app, and very responsive developer. Bitrate Pro has always been the standard of such apps, but this has knocked it off its pedestal. DVD BC makes it possible to easily do much finer grained analyses, incorporating the flexibility to toy with different video, audio and subtitle bitrate combinations without having to start from scratch again after each experimental permutation.

All that control — plus its ability to save custom presets — makes Bitrate Pro seem like an abacus by comparison.

Pretty great tool. I use Compressor a lot in my daily workflow and this feature to save preset straight from app is huge time saver. Thanks.
