As an alternative with the same options, but crf=22 (a little bit lower quality)

acodec=ac3 ac=6 ab=448k ar=48000 vcodec=libx264 vpre=libvpx-1080p50_60 crf=22 threads=9

I get

So the filesize is now 32.3 MiB vs. 45.6 MiB and the Overall bit rate is 4789 Kbps vs. 6755 Kbps. I think it stills looks fine.

Any improvements are welcome.
