# What codec to use? Tested values are rtjpeg (the default) and mpeg4
# I normally use 640x480 with the mpeg4 codec and the below settings.
# RTjpeg specific settings
# Quality level to capture at (higher better, 255 being best)
# Motion Levels (lower better, 0 being best)
# MPEG4 specific settings
# Desired bitrate, in bits/second. 2200 means about a gigabyte an hour.
I'm not sure when watching live TV if it is using mpeg4. Could be I guess as
the cpu goes up to around 70% For me the picture quality is fine but I have
really done AB tests with say xawtv.
