Alright guys, I'm about to ask what I'm sure is a really bonehead question. Does format make a lot of difference in size of file? Here's my issue: I just transcoded a video from avi to m4v with pretty much the same settings as described in this guide. I'm attaching a side by side of the details of the files. The original is on the right, converted one on the left. Why is the video bitrate higher on the converted video than original when I reduced the resolution? It's resulting in a near 1 GB file when I started with a 766 MB file and I was hoping this would decrease the size of the file as it does with every other file I've ever converted like this. Any input is appreciated!

PS, I know I upped the bitrate on the audio a bit. It was inadvertent, and I'm sure that that isn't the cause of the massive increase in size.
