I have now. Why does fspp's "quality" parameter only have a range of 4-5
while spp's range is 0-8? If I could specify fspp=2, that might be the
right choice. spp=2 debocks just about the right amount.

As far as speed goes, spp=2 seems to be faster than fspp=4.

$ time mplayer 2.avi -vf <x> -frames 2400 -nosound -vo null -benchmark

User times for <x> filters:
  (none)  0m1.463s
  spp=2   0m14.498s
  spp=3   0m29.919s
  fspp=4  0m20.526s
