I do not have any good numbers for you.  Most of my movies wind up around a
gig in size, which is bigger than what I have heard others getting when
using mp3 audio.  What I do not know though, is if my quality settings are
the same.

So all I can tell you is that it will be bigger.  For me, it is not an issue
since I have lots of disk, and additional disk is relatively cheap.
