So, yesterday I had enough time, to compare the picture quality between 2 encodes of the same movie. I used the ATV preset in Handbrake with 2pass/turbo1pass. Average Bitrate 2500. AC3 + AAC . In VH I used the ATV/go nuts preset. Although VH only puts the AC3-sound into the file, I had a filesize of 3,5GB compared to the 2,2GB Handbrake file. Watching the clips on my 50' FullHD-Plasma, I couldn't find any difference at all. Strange, isn't it?
