It comes down to playing time, quality required, type of material and a host of other factors.
If your required playing time is short enough to encode at a highish bitrate with CBR then you might as well use CBR. If your playing time is over 75 mins or so, then using a VBR type encode will generally give you a higher quality final product than a lowr bitrate CBR because it will allocate higher bitrate where required such as high motion scenes.There are 10 kinds of people in this world.

Bugster, that's much clearer.
