Best size/quality ratio with mencoder
Authored by: c15zyx on Feb 10, '04 06:21:59PM

XviD has superceded libavcodec mpeg4 for a while now since api-4.

Also, since you're using frameno, you should always specify the bitrate (-ofps 24000/1001 for example) otherwise for NTSC vfr mpeg2 it may interpret vobs as 29.97 and waste space padding a 23.97 fps source to 29.97.

I also use mencoder 3 pass, but encode lame mp3 audio manually because I can use a52dec to normalize the ac3 file. XviD 1.0rc2 defaults + qpel is incredible.
