lavc mp3 uses lame for encoding, so they're essentially the same.  With
-oac mp3lame, you can specify a lot more quality options (aq=, preset=,

With vbitrate, you'll commonly see cases after a very complex scene
(like static/noise) the following scenes will look terrible (up to the
next keyframe--up to 5s), because all the bits were used for that
complex scene, and there's practically none left over.  With vqscale, it
will use whatever number of bits are necessary to encode that scene at
the selected quality, and doesn't depend on the scenes before/after at
