You can transition to 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, or else stick to full quality. Let me explain if this seems confusing; 1/2 means half the playback quality and 1/4 means one-fourth of the original playback quality. In my experience, changing full playback quality to half the playback quality does the job.
