UsePeakModeVideoEncoderSettings specifies whether to enable peak mode for optimal compatibility with DVD burning.



Enables peak mode for DVD burning.


Retains the default average mode. This is the default value.

Windows Media Center supports encoders and drivers running in either VariableBitRateAverage or VariableBitRatePeak mode. Windows Media Center uses only VariableBitRateAverage mode by default, which does not guarantee the peak data rate for video. To enable VariableBitRatePeak for optimal compatibility with DVD burning, set UsePeakModeVideoEncoderSettings to true.
