With lavc, b-frames provide a very small improvement, but significantly
increases encoding time.

It's ironic that cmp=0 (SAD) is fastest, because, IMHO, it's also the
best.  cmp=3 (DCT) isn't bad, but it causes discoloration, with
some blocks in the video very often tinted greenish and pinkish (seen
most often in solid-color and/or very dark areas).

Don't trust me! I'm wrong!
