I would recommend not declaring a bitrate at all if using -target
ntsc-dvd. You are using a preset for NTSC DVDs which is already
declaring various average/min/max bitrates within the DVD spec. I
think the PAL preset averages about 6Mbits per second from my
experience and produces very nice looking images.
