Hi all,

Ive just compiled/installed 1.00b3.
Through a bit of googling and searching of this mailing list im using:

-lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=$BITRATE:vhq:trell:mbd=2:vmax_b_frames=1:v4mv:vb_strategy=0:vlelim=0:vcelim=7:cmp=2:subcmp=2:precmp=2:predia=1:dia=1:vme=4:vpass=1

Using this though, mencoder seems to be ignoring the bitrate im specifying.
For example, i specified 700kbit, and mencoder produced an avi avging ~1600kbits/sec (2pass).

What am i doing wrong?
