  • So I did my own testing and I don’t find there to be much difference for downloading, but compression level does seem to increase uploading time significantly. If interested, my post is titled more compression testing.



  • I always choose either 6 or 7.

    6 for old stuff, 7 for new stuff…

    that’s just me though.



  • I know that I speak for EVERYONE when saying yes, lets get it down to at least 6 (maybe 5?).

    I will be making an effort to switch the default from 9 to 5 or 6. It seems this is the best bang for your buck as Upload and Download are very well handled. Ultimately you’re not saving much more at 9 than you do at a compression rating of 5 or 6 and it just takes it so long to upload that it’s not really worth the effort. I mean it’s basically less than 1% size difference between 9 and 5.

    I hope this is good for everybody, of course your own settings can be adjusted as well.
