Now we’re getting somewhere. x264/x265 are like the de facto gold standards for the software encoders for the ITU/ISO/IEC codecs, h.265 is more efficient wrt file size, and vpx is comparable if you need/prefer OAM family. It still sounds like all you want to do is compress the video until it is fubar, is there a maximum limit on the size that you need it to be? Because then multi-pass encoding could be an option. _______________________________________________ ffmpeg-user mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-user To unsubscribe, visit link above, or email ffmpeg-user-requ...@ffmpeg.org with subject "unsubscribe".
