-For DVD the total bitrate must be below 9.8 Mb/s. So to put it simply a max bitrate around 9(nbsp)Mb is okay. Assuming you will use 2 pass mode with DVD (lavc) you must enter the video only final size. So it is better to use the calculator first, that will compute the video size from the final size.+For DVD the total bitrate must be below 9.8(nbsp)Mb/s.
