"Calculated Bitrate as Max. Bitrate" does not stay checked

Thanks again DVD2SVCD for the numerous improvements.

Recently you fixed a problem that I had brought up (this thread). Bringing back this feature has allowed me to encode as I had done previously.

However, now that it is "checked" feature, I have run into new problems which hopefully could be corrected in the next update.

1) "Calculated Bitrate as Max. Bitrate" does not stay checked when reopening the program after closing it.

2) "Calculated Bitrate as Max. Bitrate" does not stay checked when running in Batch mode.

3) "Calculated Bitrate as Max. Bitrate" does not stay checked when reloading an IFO set in the "Conversion" tab

Looking through the DVD2SVCD.ini file I can see that there is no option to keep it checked.

Could this be added to the INI file in a future release? Or is there a way I can modify the INI file myself to keep this checked?

Thanks again for your consideration

@sandchar99,

I've always wondered why people woud want to use OPV that way. Can you explain it to me?

I think you're wasting very valuable bits to improve quality by doing so, but if you have good reasons I'd like to hear about them.

@ dvd2svcd

Thanks again, tack sa mycket.

@r6d2

With regards to OPV, what do you mean? Why (or how) do I use OPV or why (or how) do I use "Calculated Bitrate as Max. Bitrate"?

Why (not how) do you use OPV with bitrate as max. I know that, in the beginning, when how OPV worked was not throughly understood, it was a common practice.

But today, we know that it is quite similar to a CBR encode with max=avg=calculated bitrate. Which, I don't know if you're aware, is not the optimal thing to do.

It's because the new algorithm was creating files way in excess of the 800 MB size limit. See thread:

thread

I would end up with 6 image sets instead of 3 consistently

CD 1 800 MB
CD 2 60 MB
CD 3 800 MB
CD 4 60 MB
CD 5 800 MB
CD 6 60 MB

@sandchar99,

You are missing the point entirely. You just seem to use that mode because "you always have".

I really suggest you to use D2Sroba, as DDogg did on that thread. Otherwise, stick to CBR. You will have no error at all and almost exactly the same quality as you get with your current use of OPV.

If you're still not convinced, and would like to try something better, read the Idiot's Guide.

I highly reccomend D2Sroba plugin!


My past 3 encodes using the latest version have filled between 96 - 99% of disc capacity!

IF you want to squeeze onto 1 CD or any number of CD's it works!

Ok Ok Ok

You broke down my resistance.

I will use D2Sroba plugin.

(Repeat 100 times).

Long live OPV!!! (As long as my RT is still around 1.0).

I'll change my tune when I get a processor faster than a P4 1.4 and go back to 4 Pass VBR.

Your RT will not change at all. Be prepared to do a second pass 1 out of 5 times, but also save 1 CD out of 3 movies.

Do you want to bet?
