Quality Settings (File Size)

I often get the question what's the best Quality Settings to use, Well it's actually personal preference so I will show you a recommended Quality Settings. But before you continue to read, as with all my guides:

If you don't care about quality then stop reading and see if the other tutorials are helpful for you.

This Quality Settings has been created and tested with info I got from others, and release comparisons from different sources.



Q: Why do you only show starting from HDTV720p?

A: With the big screens these days anything lower doesn't look watchable

Q: Why do you have some sized set to max?

A: You probably didn't read the bold text above

Q: When I set Bluray to MAX size I get often ISO's/ Bluray folder structure.

A: You probable have configured your Quality Profiles wrong and enabled BR-DISK and didn't add the recommended Custom Profile to help Radarr to block/ignore it. BR-DISK

Q: Some movies won't be grabbed because of these settings.

A: If you notice that some movies won't be grabbed because of these size settings you can provide me a proof with a screenshot and the error it shows you when you do a interactive search (non redacted except the indexer/tracker if you want to).

  • I will only accept changes that are International releases no multi, or dubbed language releases.
  • I won't accept mislabeled source releases like from MeGusta, etc (they should learn to name their stuff decent first).
  • I won't accept changes for micro sized releases.
  • Documentaries and cartoons are often much smaller so I probably won't edit those either.

The reason why you don't see the preferred score in the Table is because we want max quality anyway so as high as possible.
