Bitrate capping in Qscale

Issue #1090 wontfix
Audionut created an issue

Hi,

I would like to request bitrate capping in Qscale mode.

The reason being that a very safe Qscale setting for my card is -8.
With a very bitrate hungry scene, this will peak at around 100mbps.

See example http://i.imgur.com/yPexc.png

The average bitrate in that example is exaggerated due to the large bitrate scene.

For instance, an indoor shot at -8 http://i.imgur.com/kSec1.png

I would like to be able to use Qscale -10 or even -11 to bring the average bitrate up. However, in it's current form, this easily produces bitrate spikes that exceed the cards capability.

Of course, I could change Qscale for different scenes, but a set and forget setting for all occasions would be much better.

Also, Qscale has the advantage of adjusting bitrate, rather then just sticking with CBR.

Regards,
Audionut.
