No, you get out a calculator and divide the number of bits on a cd
(5898240000) by the length of the movie in seconds. That will give you
the total bitrate you can use for audio+video. Then subtract off
whatever you'll be using for audio (technically this is variable, but
you can use abr to specify the average bitrate you want, or just
estimate about 128 kbit/sec with q=6 or 7) and whatever you have left
is the video bitrate you should use.
