#657 new defect

lavcopt vrc_maxrate has no effect

Reported by: shelikoff@… Owned by: reimar
Priority: normal Component: ve
Version: 1.0rc1 Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:


Setting vrc_maxrate=9800 for a DVD does not limit the bitrate in the output file
to 9800kbs. Even if the vbitrate is as low as 6000kbps, the max bitrate can
spike higher than 9800. For a 2 pass encode, the problem is much worse and
bitrate spikes will exceed 9800 by much further than a single pass encode for
the same vbitrate.

You may be able to disregard this. I had a batch file pointing to an older
version of mencoder. Still testing with the latest version to see if it
exhibits the problem.

Ok, the latest version does exhibit the problem. Both in 1 pass and 2 pass,
VRC_MACXRATE is ignored. Here's the version:
