    I have recently purchased CloneBD and it kicks the heck out of Handbrake for BlueRay. Now one thing I am not used to selecting in all my time in Handbrake was a bitrate. I know it had one but you did not see the number it was a menu option.

    Anyway my question is what bitrates do you guys normally use? If I do at least 12mb or more I cannot see any difference if I go all the way to 27.

    I know the greater bitrate should produce better quality (and larger size) but functionally I am not seeing much difference.

    Just looking for some advice there. Thank you.

    Hi DarkQuark,

    For 1080p BluRay, I use approx 7.5mbps and for UHD 2160p video I use approx 25.00mbps. Both look pretty good to me on my 78 inch Samsung curved TV.
