It's lossy.

Proof of that is that it's a CBR encoder. You can't make Lossless CBR. Lossless is always VBR.

not quite. is PCM for CD audio (which is CBR at about 1440kbps) "lossy encoding" ?  (i know it is lossy in a way that any recording and any encoding loses information, but doesn't mean the same as "lossy encoding" which is discussed on this Board, isn't it?)

We are talking about compressors here. Smartass.

@DSP: I was talking about the implementation used in DVDs and theaters, that is what everyone has access to anyway.
