Thanks for the response. I remember reading somewhere that VBR can actually make more complex parts of the song exceed the bitrate you encoded it with? Ex: You encode a song at 320 VBR, during more complex parts it will actually exceed 320? Is that true?
Variable Bit Rates?
Fuck no, never use that bullshit. Constant bit rates are all anybody should ever seriously be using with any audio/video streams with today's massive HDD capacity. If you were real tight on space it'd be understandable, but you can pick up 1TB externals for like 80$ now...
So are you saying if you have an older PC you'd be better off just ripping it at 320 constant bit rate?
I think that only happens if the program you're using screws up at some point and tries to make up for it later. Like it encodes something important at a lower bit rate it meant to, so it'll encode the next part at something higher than it meant to. It happens a lot in Sony Vegas with Video streams, not too sure how it works out with audio streams though.
I wouldn't be surprised if it happened a lot with a bad pc or program.
