Quality Settings, Predefined Settings
What are the quality-switches for every predefined setting?

For e.x. what is the quality parameter for --standard tag? etc.

It's not possible to emulate presets by using custom quality switches because many preset tunings are just hardcoded.

all right then... do we have to choose one of them (quality switch or presets) in command line or can they also be used together? if one of them can be used, for instance what is the difference between using --standard and using --quality 5?

additionally, what is the max. quality parameter?

Ok, I misunderstood you. "quality" settings map 1:1 with presets.
5 is "standard", 7 is "insane", check around for the complete list.

--quality 2 = --telephone
--quality 3 = --thumb
--quality 4 = --radio
--quality 5 = --standard
--quality 6 = --extreme
--quality 7 = --insane
--quality 8 = --braindead

--quality 1 and --quality 9 and 10 are not useful/optimal and have no corresponding profile names.

thanks for replies.

it is not related to topic but I have one more question. Below EAC's command line label, there is a Bit Rate label. Are there certain bit rate levels for each quality setting? For e.x., when using --extreme is it sufficient to change bit rate level to 128 kBit/s?

"no exceptions" means no exceptions...
The words "no exceptions" in the forum's terms of service are there for a very good reason, so please just follow them.....
EAC's bit rate setting has no effect on mppenc.
