I am converting from mkv to WMV HD using tmpgenc or wme assistant depending on time constraints. One thing I've found is if I reduce the video bit rate from 10000 to 5000 my encoding time goes from 8 hours to two.
What is a good bit rate to set for mkv hd with resolutions like 1280x800 and 1280x720 (I realize each of these would have their own)
I am trying to keep encoding time 2-6 hours but 8 is ok as long as it's once in a while (I can set it while I go to bed)
Thanks in advance!
