I've been using this like for lavcopts:

-ovc lavc -lavcopts 

Lately I've been adding trell and some other things suggested by 
encoding_tips, but the problems arise no matter what. I doubt it's a 
bug -- it's been happening for well on a year now.

The reason I have a hard time believing this is that the movies have 
noticeable artifacts -- seems like if even I can tell that the bitrate 
isn't high enough, the encoder should be able to tell too. =- )

as desired.' "
