I have a rudimentary idea of what I need to do to get the value. Here are
the relevant details:
FLAGS NAME NB_COMPONENTS BITS_PER_PIXEL
IO... yuv420p 3 12
But when I try to come up with a useful value from that data I get a very
large value. Much higher than the typical 24-60 or so for quantization
that I see in files I encode.
Have I gotten the formula correct?
Size WxH BPP FPS Duration Bitrate
