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.
I only do WEB-DL my self for TV shows because in my opinion WEB-DL is the sweet spot between Quality and Size and you often don't see big difference anyway for TV shows. (Except for shows like GOT, Vikings, etc)
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 so high?
A: You probably didn't read the bold text above, I also need to keep in mind usenet releases that are often bigger then torrent releases.
Q: You noticed that some episodes don't grab because of these settings.
A: If you notice that some episodes 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.
