Can anybody provide a good guide to converting high-bitrate MPEG-2
recordings to SVCD-compliant MPEG-2 with avidemux2? I realize that I
could just set up an SVCD-compliant recording profile, but sometimes I
don't know I want to archive something until after the fact. Plus, I
think it might result in better quality to initially encode at a higher
bitrate, then re-encode to a lower bitrate. Is it necessary to
completely re-encode in order to lower the bitrate, or is there a
quicker way? And what is 're-quantizing' that I've heard mentioned?
Apologies if this is too OT...
