Re: Constant Quality vs Avg Bitrate at equal bitrates

You should be using vbv to cap bitrate peaks for streaming, and letting the constant RF do what it needs otherwise. This sounds like how I would like to handle it, but I'm not familiar enough with how to use the vbv parameter. Could you point me in the direction of a relevant guide? How does vbv wo...

I am in the process of converting all of my movies over to a smaller bitrate to allow for streaming on my Emby server using my limited bandwidth. To avoid the cpu strain of constant transcoding, I have used HB to convert all the movies to limit the bitrate, which has worked great. On all of the guid...
