When you generate a mpeg file for XYZ lets say thats DVD then theres
a XYZ (DVD in this case) specification that lists what buffer size
this allows.

If you choose a value larger than what the spec allows then you dont
conform to the spec and some players will not corectly play the file.
too small and you get various over and underflows

note, "-target XYZ" will set these things correctly
