Well, I'm probably out of compliance, because I'm specifying higher bitrates
than vqscale=1 gives me anyway. But I'm also using 24 fps without using the
telecine option. I can't seem to find a way to apply soft telecining without
messing up the output. It plays, but it doesn't play correctly. If I leave
out the telecine option, the DVDs I make using a solution based on dvdauthor
still play correctly on all the players I've tried, and I've tried quite a
few. But if there's a method for achieving  successful soft telecining
besides just adding the telecine option to mpegopts (-mpegopts
format=dvd:tsaf:telecine), I'd like to know about it. Thanks.
