Constant quality encoding, % of What?

Post by Bluemint »

The new 0.9.4 recommends quality-based encoding.

Does the percentage refers to the percentage of the original source's kbps as reported by QuickTime X?

No.

The percentage scale is useless. It's the RF value that matters. Recommended values for x264 are 23-19 (55-63%).
