There was another reason:
4x 170 < 700
26 x 170 < 4.43gb
All these sizes are near multiples of 700 or 4.4 gb for a reason.

h.264 cannot obtain the quality that rmvb can at low bitrates. RMVB looks far superior at those file sizes. (<100mb).

Also, in general, despite what some posters seem to think, there is no corrolation between increased size and increased quality.
