Since you want fast, 2-pass isn't an option, however using -vqscale
instead of a bit-rate should give you more constant quality and
thus better compression for the same minimum quality.
Bitrate however is not really predictable in that case.
In addition, a fixed -vqscale tends to result in a bit faster
encoding as well.
You just need to figure out a value that works for you.
