Ive been playnig around with "Bitrate viewer" on a few files ive converted and noticed something which i thought shoud not be there.
I encoded a file with
ffmpeg -threads 0 -i xxx.avi -vcodec libx264 -preset superfast -x264opts keyint=75 -s 720x288
-bufsize 1M -r 25 -b:v 600k -bt 200k -maxrate 900k -acodec libfaac -ab
96k -ar 48k -ac 2 -async 1 -y -f mpegts xxx.ts
Now i was expecting the final bitrate to be under 1000k, but using the viewer i have a min of 38k and a max of 1500k, average is 838k.
So what have i missed in keeping the rate under 1000k? or is bitrate viewer wrong?
