Modify ffmpeg for video transcoding


Active member
Hi there,

is it possible to modify the ffmpeg settings to reduce the filesize of videos?

For example bitrate, fps and resolution.

Push :).

I use the software handbrake to compress all my videos. The software is also available for ubuntu (command line).
Does anybody try to use handbrake instead of ffmpeg?

The FFmpeg settings we use should already reduce the file size, though it won’t attempt to change the resolution.

For the most part though it should reduce the file size for most videos regardless.
