I updated my previous post with some major changes. You should get better results this way.

    I recommend using TX264 to do the conversion.  After downloading and extracting it, download the Nero AAC codec and place "neroAacEnc.exe" into the root of TX264's "Tools" folder.
    Open TX264.  In the "Mode" dropdown, select "Constant Rate Factor" and select a CRF of 23.00 (look at the output files; if it is degrading the quality too much, try lowering CRF to say, 20).  Set "Profile" to "High" and "Level" to "5.1".  Select a "Preset" of "Veryslow".
    Now, go to the "Audio" tab.  Click the "NeroAAC" tab.  Set the "Encoding Mode" to "Quality".  Select a quality of "0.50" and leave "Profile" on "Auto".  In the "Container" section, I recommend using MKV, because MKV files are slightly smaller and seek faster than MP4 files.  But either will work; it is up to you.

    Hopefully that helps! thumb.gif

    P.S. TX264 basically automates a workflow very similar to the one that shinigamibob mentioned earlier.

    I will mention that the method I mentioned in my previous post will result in an output file that is encoded VBR on both the audio and video.  Also, it will maintain the original, individual sizes of each video file.
