“Good” is context specific. You can get speed, quality, and low-bitrate, but 
you only get two... which two depends on your use case.

Not sure why they re-interleave the files. Perhaps it’s a means to also make 
the file “web optimized”, but they could do that directly with ffmpeg.

Taking the vertical scan resolution and appending 3 zeros to use as the 
bitrate is kinda lame and doesn’t well reflect the rate the bitrate generally 
changes as the frame size increases with the x264 encoder.

Also, the resolution “480” (at least in the context of broadcasting) generally 
implies an animorphic resolution, which is not what is happening in this 
instance. But that’s being nitpicky.
