Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Worst to best LAME VBR methods? mt, rh, mtrh?

I'm encoding a video with MEncoder, and in mp3lame options there are five VBR methods to choose: 0=CBR, 1=MT, 2=RH, 3=ABR, 4=MTRH.

What is the difference between MT, RH, and MTRH?

Which of these five algorithms do you think are best and which the worst?

IIRC these options were relevant ~20 years ago.

MT, and RH are just the initials of the person that implemented it: Mark Taylor, and Robert hegemann.  MTRH means a combination of both.

You can check the history to know a bit more about them, but they are old things:
https://sourceforge.net/p/lame/svn/HEAD/tree/trunk/lame/doc/html/history.html?format=raw

If that encoder forces you to switch, you will probably need to select 4.
