My Video Encoding Profiles
I use them to encode videos for YouTube and kind of archive. Videos are not that important, so they can be a bit blurry.
Currently I prefer VP9+Opus or Vorbis. Trying to evade patented codecs with crazy politics. AV-1+Opus also make sense. H264+AAC and high profile are classic.
4:4:4 subsampling is important for recordings of text, games can handle 4:2:0.
I’ll just throw it there and later maybe add more info.
Kdenlive profile, easy to extract ffmpeg arguments:
To convert extracted Blu-ray (legally bought of course) with makemkv to MKV including subtitles:
ffmpeg -i bluray:"." -analyzeduration 2147483647 -probesize 2147483647 -scodec ass -acodec flac -vcodec copy out.mkv
This probably won’t work:
for i in *.m2ts; do ffmpeg -i $i -analyzeduration 2147483647 -probesize 2147483647 -scodec copy -acodec flac -vcodec copy $(basename $i .m2ts).mkv; done
I kind of lost other profiles, will add them later.
