I'm bashing my head against a wall here.

I have a lot of clips for cutscenes made but I can't seem to convert them correctly.
MPEG 2 plays at a good image quality but it drops frames and the animation is jittery when played in renpy. (Plays fine in VLC) And when converted to webm the animation is fine but the quality drops to the point that it's unusable. I know it's possible to make it work because I've seen it done but I'm stumped at what I'm doing wrong. I can't seem to get any results out of Media Encoder or Handbrake. Anyone got any good/trustworthy converters for converting good quality webm? You help would be much appreciated

Many thanks,

New software won't do anything different. The problem is in your settings (also MPEG 2 is trash)

Depending on the clips, you will have to adjust the command line input (if available) or choose sane settings that aren't crap.

Give this a read:

I recommend either 2-pass or constant quality settings.
