Earlier I sent an email concerning this sudden improvement in the quality of
my timelapse mpeg1 movies.
I recently changed my configuration to have motion create .mov files instead
of .avi files. After a few days, I discovered that most of the .mov files
were causing QuickTime Player to crash. After some research, I decided that
the reason was that I had enabled variable bitrate encoding in ffmpeg with
the following configuration setting:
and so I changed it back to
last night. Now today I'm able to play all of the recently created .mov
files with QuickTime Player without any problem (yay!); however, I noticed
that the quality of my timelapse MPEG1 files became much worse and files
Does anyone know why the quality of the MPEG1 timelapse movies would be
impacted by changing the ffmpeg_variable_bitrate value? Is there any
possibility of having separate configurations entries for
ffmpeg_variable_bitrate (i.e. one for the regular movies and one for
timelapse) or is there a bug here that needs to be addressed?
