Well I followed the link posted above. Then clicked on "Check out this demo". That's it.
But I tried it again today and this time the filesize is only 15,4 MB (so yes, 500 kbps roughly).
I don't know what caused the change, but at any rate 500 kbps is impressive.

exactly which of his settings are outdated ? Those quoted above are still selectable in current x264.
and how do you know they are outdated, when you don't even know his settings?

you are the best!
everything is there ... nice and tidy!

given that you know your way 'round so well, .... can you bear one last question?
I promise it's the last :)

I was looking for a for some text explaining to me what what the different "tunes" mean exactly (film, grain, animation, etc.). Again, I didn't find a whole lot, only a quite vague comment by one of the developers, but nothing like the good help files you turned up. I know, at first glance the descriptors are pretty obvious... but then again,... does animation only refer to classic old-school animation like Donald Duck or also to CGI mangas with lots of light flares, special effects, rendering, etc.? And does "grain" rather try to preserve grain in grainy material (which would be lost with other settings) or - on the contrary - redouble the efforts to remove the grain (i.e. more noise reduction) ? And does "film" refer to regular cinema movies ... ? Don't bother with answering all of these, but if you could give me a link or a hint where I could look for the answer, I'd really appreciate that.
