If i was to strip a vcd of its audio & encode it to either mp3 or aac for playback on my ipod, what would be the opitmal bitrate or encoding settings i guess.

I believe vcd audio is not cd quality and thus maybe mp3 -aps would be over kill ... as would faac q-150.

Just want some opinions so i dont have to transcode mulitple times.

thanks

VCD audio is MP2 @ 224kbps. I wouldn't bother transcoding to MP3 at any higher than 160kbps.

hmm so CBR would work? if you say about 160 ... then -alt preset medium or -q125 might work then correct?

thanks!

Try --alt-preset standard. I'm pretty confident that it will use a bitrate under 200.

At least a lot of software MP3 decoders can decode MP2 as well, maybe its worth a try to see if the ipod can play the MP2 file directly?

vcd audio is 44.1khz. By my experience, encoding vcd audio track into MP3 at 128kbps is more than enough.
