Great post!

Specifying the minimum, average (this is the most important figure) and max bitrates is crucial in determining whether I download a torrent. Also, if you use Variable Bit Rate, specify the number of passes that were made.

For people who can't afford the high price of the full Cinemecraft Encoder, there is a scaled down version called CCE Basic. Basically, it's uses the encoder engine of the full version, except it restricts you to 2 passes in VBR. And it's a bargain at around $60
