So you do an encoding quality test by using a highly lossy source?  Is
this some kind of joke?

Settings?  Samples?  Input?  Output?  There's zero information in your post.

So instead of GPL, we should use a proprietary encoder?  Talk about
out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I'm quite sure that IPP is not licensed under the LGPL, especially
given that you talk about "your license" of it.
