Similar to what Andrey replied: Life (and encoding) is more complicated
than this. It seems you're not only a newbie on this list. ;-)

You need to consider: What are your
- target users and devices,
- bandwidth/storage limitation (though you did mention what bandwidth
  you aim at);
- conversion hardware capabilities
and so on. Usually, when choosing codecs and encoding parameters, you
pick e.g. the best of time, space, quality _for your needs_, but you
never get the best of all three!

By experimenting. We don't know your hardware or any of the above.

Take some time to look at how encoding works, and play around some. That's
how most people here gathered their experience. Or get consultants. :)

Just a kind hint,
