For me "1-77-0-1-0" gives the best compression and also good results.

Some questions by encoding at a very low resolution like 240x160:

Recommended CQ_VBR? Right, or?
Is it OK that I use a min Bitrate of 0 or should I use 1 and enable padding not to be lower than minimum bitrate?

Kwag you say 300kbps at Max; also with this resolution (240x160)?

Is it ok that I don't use b-Frames in GOP also with normal KVCD?

The Values of CQ_VBR is over 50 CQs lower than CQ is its right or better say OK?

OK I lied about that being my last question. In your template you have the gop set to 1-18-3-1-48. What changes would you make? Just bump the 48 to 64 or what? You would possibly drop the framerate to 12fps? You also have all the "special settings" checked including soften block noise. Should I leave these the same.

Thanks
Magnus

I can't believe that this is in the Templates or it's a good quality gop.

CQ_VBR

Use 0, because you'll be playing in a software player. So no need to use a higher MIN value.

I think 300 is the MAX I would use. Just to cover high action scenes.

NO
Without B frames, you'll get less compression.

The CQ_VBR scale is lower than CQ. So you'll get very low values.

Those values were in the very old templates, right

Try it
In such a small screen, you might just tolerate the small jerkiness, at the cost of smaller final file size

Clear that. Remove the "Soften Blocks". It will actually make your encode more blocky.

Also, don't use overscan blocks for that encode, because there is no overscan on those Smartphone screens. Just like in a computer monitor. Only TV's have overscan

Just for kicks, here's a clip at 160x120 (QQVGA resolution).
http://www.kvcd.net/smartphone-160x120.mpg
It's 38 seconds long, and only 431KB
Please, use Vdub to play it, so that it displays in actual size. That was encoded at a CQ_VBR value of 18.59 at a frame rate of 12fps, which yields a final size of ~80MB (full video encode, without audio)
You'll probably need glasses to watch it on a smartphone screen, but at that size, it looks pretty damn good
MIN was 0 and MAX was 300Kbps and GOP of 1-5823-2-1-72.

Thanks for all the help! I think that covers it. I'll be be watching quality (yet tiny) movies on those boring flights on who would have thought it.... my phone.

Thanks
Magnus

That's not right kwag. I've tested a lot and if you choose a GOP like "1-77-0-1-0" Than you have the best compression with KVCD Notch Matrix. Eith only one B-frame my testfile of 10minutes will be 200kb greater.

That clip's quite dark, I'd be interested in seeing one a bit brighter

Oh yeh, and how about some sound

You have three types of compression:
(1) I frames only ( worse compression )
(2) I and P ( better compression )
(3) I, B and P ( Best compression )

So the lower the bitrate, #3 will give best quality.
However, for studio broadcast quality, I frames only at a very high bitrate ( ~50,000 ) will give the best quality.

I can't see how you possibly got better quality without B frames. Unless you used a much higher bitrate with I and P than with I, B and P frames.

Edit: 160x120. GOP = 96 , 23.976fps. 3 B frames. CQ_VBR=18.59, KVCD Notch matrix.

That looks fine Kwag.
